Sport Chalet Hooks In-Store Signing With Pro Boxer Andre Ward At FIGat7th

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Sport Chalet, Inc., a specialty sporting goods retailer, will host an autograph signing with the current WBA and WBC Super Middleweight Champion Andre Ward on Wednesday, Aug. 28, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at its FIGat7th store located at 735 Figueroa St., in Downtown Los Angeles. In continued celebration of the new store opening, the signing will be part of a number of in-store clinics and events open to the public throughout the year.


To fans, it's no surprise that Ward hasn't lost a fight since the age of 14. He is currently ranked number two on the international pound-for-pound rankings and has a perfect 26-0 record as a professional. For any boxing enthusiasts looking to enter a ring, Sport Chalet offers a variety of Everlast gear and apparel to support their training needs.

In addition to Ward, Tom Piszkin, a former collegiate track athlete and current Masters Triathlon Coach at the University of California in San Diego, will host a free clinic on Wednesday, Sept. 11, at 6:30 p.m. During Piszkin's 26-year-career span, he's trained thousands of athletes, including the overall female winner of the Canadian Ironman. Whether a serious triathlete or just curious about the sport, attendees will be able to interact with Piszkin and hear him discuss his background and unique experiences.

"We are proud to host professional athletes and positive role models like Andre Ward and Tom Piszkin, who both encourage fans to pursue their sporting interests," said Tom Connell, Senior Buyer of Sport Chalet. "Our stores breed environments where enthusiasts can aspire to achieve new fitness milestones. Every in-store clinic conducted by our Expert staff is designed to help people learn something new, get back in the game or take their skills to the next level."

Throughout the year, Sport Chalet will present weekly clinics and provide advice and demonstrations at its FIGat7th location. In conjunction with the classes, Sport Chalet will continue to host events and appearances with athletes and trained professionals in their respective sports to further involve the Downtown community.
