Mission & Purpose

Find what moves you. At Sport Chek, we believe that sport is whatever moves you. It shouldn’t be bound by rulebooks or live within set lines and lanes. It’s not limited to what happens on the court, rink, field or track. Because it’s not just about what you’re doing, but how you’re feeling. Alive. Exhilarated. Renewed. Sport is more than its traditional definitions. It has the power to shape your style, your relationships, your mind, and ultimately, it’s part of who you are. Sport Chek is Canada’s health and wellness destination for looking well, feeling well, and performing well. Our role is to help motivate Canadians to get moving and help them achieve their wellness goals. As Canada’s leading health and wellness destination, Sport Chek understands better than anyone the role sports and activity play in the lives of Canadians. We want to inspire our customers to live an active lifestyle by making sports and activity more fun, approachable and inclusive. With over 190 stores across Canada, Sport Chek is the destination for FGL Sports, providing customers with both brand name and private brand products.
