“When I began the search for a new apparel partner, I wanted a company that understood the rich ethos of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities in general and the SIAC in particular. As a relatively new brand, Crons “Come Ready Or Never Start” approach not only mirrors the commitment and work ethic of our student-athletes, but Crons is also well positioned to tap into the enormous brand building, taste making, and trendsetting prowess of our nearly 35,000 SIAC students and 400,000 SIAC alumni, ” stated SIAC Commissioner Greg Moore.
“The Crons Brand™ is extremely honored to be in partnership with such a historic and prestigious conference as the SIAC and especially proud to now be a part of such a rich athletic tradition,” said Crons CEO and President Pat Cavanaugh.
Crons will offer conference schools its proprietary goal and character education curriculum, The Crons Come Ready or Never Start™ Achievers Program, as well as nutritional products, such as protein and energy bars, for their student athletes. Crons will also supply apparel for the conference's online store.
“Crons is committed to providing the highest quality of apparel and service to all the member schools and their athletic programs so that each and every sport can benefit from the efficiencies that this partnership will create. We look forward to supplying these resources that will assist coaches in building their programs and also motivate the student-athletes to reach their full potential both on and off the playing field,” Cavanaugh added.
