About Us

store owner

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. With plenty of family and local support, the small store started to expand and began offering Firearm and Archery sales by 1986. With business booming and the introduction of Johnny Morris’ Tracker boats, D&R Sports Center became a dealer for Tracker Marine by 1988. Since then, D&R 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.

There have been many additions to the D&R Sports line-up over the years including fishing boats and pontoon boats from Tahoe, Mako, Sun Tracker, Regency, Nitro, Apex Marine, Gill Getter, Qwest, Triton, Ranger Boats, and Ascend Kayaks. We also carry an extensive selection of pre-owned boats that we thoroughly inspect and warranty.

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 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 Elite Series tournament in 2012.

Our expertise in Marine, Hunting, Fishing and Outfitting, makes us the ideal stop for all of your interests. We strive to show all of our customers how much we appreciate their business. We look forward to helping you with all of your future interests.
