Est. 1976

  Thygesen Sports came to be when the Thygesen family was running their pools & spas store, Pools Inc. Looking to increase business during the slower winter months, and being a large sports family, they decided to start selling a few skates, sticks, and other basic hockey equipment. The popularity of the little sports section grew, and when Charlie Thygesen Jr graduated from business school in 1976, he decided to take the idea to the next level. 

   Starting out, it was primarily a hockey and winter sports store. But over the years, addition by addition, Charlie has built Thygesen Sports into a one-stop-shop for all your team sports needs.

   43 years later, we're still family owned and family managed. The expert staff are all former or current athletes with a wealth of knowledge about equipment and the games themselves. From beginners to pros, we've got what you need to play your best!

We Are Your Sports Specialists!

The founder, owner, and head boss-man, Charlie has been here since the beginning. His dedication to providing local athletes and sports organizations with quality, affordable gear has made Thygesen Sports what it is today.
