Item 1.01.  Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On June 2, 2008, the Board of Directors (Board) of Hibbett Sports, Inc. (Company) approved amendments to the Amended 1996 Stock Plan for Outside Directors (ODIR) and the Amended 1996 Stock Option Plan (SOP) (Amendments) for employees.  The Amendment to the ODIR extended the grace period for exercising a stock option for a retired director from one year from the date of retirement to the original term of the option.  The Amendment to the SOP extended the grace period for exercising a non-qualified stock option for an employee who has died, become disabled or retired to the original term of the option.  For this purpose, a retired employee is defined as an employee who is sixty-five years of age and has had seven years of continuous service with the Company.
 
In action on the same day, the Board approved a Standard Non-Qualified Equity Award Agreement (Agreement) relating to non-qualified stock options issued under the Company’s Amended 2005 Equity Incentive Plan.
 
The Amendments and Agreement are effective as of June 2, 2008.  The full text of the plans and agreement described above is attached as exhibits to this Form 8-K.

The disclosure concerning the Amendment to the SOP and the revised Agreement and the related exhibits, as described under Item 1.01 above, constitute changes to compensatory arrangements in which the registrant’s named executive officers may participate and are therefore incorporated by reference into this Item.
