Endorsements and Testimonials

From time to time, Academy Sports + Outdoors may run sweepstakes in connection with its Ratings and Reviews. Certain ratings and/or reviews posted may have entitled the author to a sweepstakes entry. However, Contents posted by consumers are always at the full discretion of the consumer. In no way did any Content increase the likelihood that anyone would, or would not, win any particular promotion or receive any prize. All ratings/reviews are expected to be provided by consumers with full knowledge of the product to be rated or reviewed in order to give our customers reliable and beneficial advice to help them find the best Academy products.

Entry into any sweepstakes or contest is not consideration for any review, and if you believe you have been compensated for any review by Academy Sports + Outdoors, or any of its affiliates or marketing or advertising agencies, you must disclose such compensation, or any material connection as part of your review. By submitting your email address in connection with your rating/review, you agree that Academy Sports + Outdoors and its third party service providers may use your email address to contact you about the status of your review and other administrative purposes.
