Our Story

About D&R Sports Center

D&R Sports Center in Kalamazoo, Michigan opened its doors in 1982 as a fishing tackle store when owner Randy VanDam decided to bring his dream to reality. Originally started by Randy and his father Dick (D&R = Dick & Randy), the store was located in a small storefront on the other side of the parking lot. Since then D&R Sports Center has grown to be one of the largest hunting & fishing outfitters in the area. With plenty of family and local support, the small store began offering Firearm and Archery sales by 1986. With business booming and the introduction of Johnny Morris's Tracker Boats, D&R Sports Center became a dealer for Tracker Marine by 1988. Since then, D&R Sports Center has been listed as a top dealer for Tracker Marine. In 2013, D&R Sports Center was listed as one of the "Top 10" dealers in the country and has held that status ever since.
Since the very beginning our mission has been the same; Serve our customers with top-quality products, outstanding customer service and with the best value in the market. At D&R Sports Center our goal is to treat our customers and employees like part of our family. Everyone at D&R Sports Center is passionate about the outdoors and loves coming to work everyday. This comes from the long line of expertise in our history. Randy VanDam is a former State Champion Bass Angler, older brother to the bass fishing legend, Kevin VanDam and father to Jonathon VanDam who won his first BASS Elite Series tournament in 2012.
