It’s a fairly common question we often see asked, and the answer isn’t all that clear.
Unfortunately, Academy Sports doesn’t ship directly to Canada.
However, we have a pretty simple solution that gets around this restriction. Essentially, you’ll be able to get any item from the Academy Sports store shipped to Canada, all for a crazy low price.
How to Deliver Items from the Academy Sports Online Store to Canada
To ship internationally, Academy Sports requires you to have a physical address in the United States. It is there that you will be expected to receive your order.
The good news is that you do not need to live in the United States, or even have relatives or friends that do, for this process to work!
If you look around online, you’ll find a bunch of companies in the U.S. offering physical United States addresses to customers located overseas.
These companies provide addresses for this specific use case, and they’ll even help ship your packages directly to you.
This type of service is called Freight Forwarding.
You simply register an account with a Freight Forwarder, and they’ll provide you with a U.S. based address.
You then use this address for your deliveries, and they’ll automatically forward them to your home country.
The Freight Forwarder which we would strongly recommend is called MyUS. They are reliable, affordable and unlike other Freight Forwarders, they do not charge extra taxes.
We feel confident to recommend MyUS because we have shipped lots of packages with them internationally and have only had brilliant experiences.
What’s not to like? You can shop for Academy Sports and your other favourite brands on US-based websites and get your orders shipped to your door.

They truly do take the hassle and worry out of the process of international shipping.
Once they receive the package, they will notify you to see if you would like them to ship it to you in Canada, or if you would prefer to bundle a larger order. It can save you time and money in the long run!
MyUS gives you the ability to order from U.S.-based companies as if you were living overseas.
