The 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.



The 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.

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.
