FACILITIES IMPROVEMENT

Under Armour is renovating every Baltimore City Public High School gymnasium that participates in interscholastic athletics so no matter what Baltimore City High School a student athlete attends, they are all getting the same first-in-class experience on their home court. Renovations include refinished branded floors, customized wall padding and replacing bleachers and scoreboards as needed, with the intention to improve the student-athlete experience.

NEW ON-FIELD PERFORMANCE APPAREL

Every public high school student athlete in Baltimore City is outfitted with best-in-class Under Armour uniforms. In addition, every high school coach receives Under Armour performance apparel and each student athlete receives a one-of-a-kind Baltimore Student Athlete t-shirt. Providing this quality gear to students and coaches provides them with a sense of pride and serves as a way to unite athletes across the city.
