National Sports Hockey Equipment Specialists

At National Sports, our vision is to create a unique retail experience that seamlessly meets the needs of the sports communities in which we serve.

The National Sports story started when Norm Clements created National Gym Clothing Limited, in 1968. Although he started out selling sports equipment from the trunk of his car, his passion couldn't be contained and the company expanded to include multiple retail stores in Southern Ontario. Now owned by FGL Sports Ltd. and its parent, Canadian retail icon Canadian Tire Corporation, National Sports continues to provide outstanding selection, pricing and service to its loyal Customers across Ontario.

We believe team sports are unique because they create a sense of community for the players, their families and fans.  Yet every community needs a centre – a place they can go for resources, counsel, expertise and support.  That’s where we come in.  We offer the broadest selection of the best brands for team sports, and hire only knowledgeable staff who are passionate about helping you raise your game.


When you shop at National Sports you can trust that all of our hockey staff have been trained as a member of our Fitting Advisor Squad. We know that fit is critical to success and we specialize in balancing Performance by Protection Ratio (PPR) to ensure every player can perform to the best of their ability knowing that they will be properly protected to handle the demands of the game!

The right fit ensures better and safer play.

National Sports, Ontario’s premier sporting goods retailer, is proud to offer 18 stores across the province to make sure that our selection, service and expertise are as accessible as possible.
