Club Description

Sports Product Development Club was founded at Oregon State University in 2017. The goal of the club is to provide students who share an interest in the science, engineering, and business of sports products, a community to discuss, learn, network, and further push the technology of sport. Sports Product Development Club is a place for anyone who loves sports and wants to make them better for everyone. Our club has members from a diverse set of majors and backgrounds. SPD is molded by these three pillars: Guest Speakers, Industry tours, and Product Development. Every term, Sports Product Development Club invites Guest Speakers from Industry, where they get to share about their lives and experiences. We have been fortunate enough to be able to host a R&D team from Adidas, a group of talented engineers from Sigma, and many other outstanding individuals. Industry tours are currently on hold due to the pandemic but will resume as soon as we are safely able to do so. Past industry tours have included Nike, Sigma Design, and several other companies. We begin the product development process with a problem statement of an issue or inconvenience in sports. We then methodically go through an ideation phase where we consider all possible solutions and how those could take form physically. Next is prototyping with low-cost supplies while we continue researching the best options. Finally is the development stage which requires continuous reevaluation and redesigning in order to build the best product possible. We look forward to seeing you.
