Need a Good Recommendation for a Filter Plugin

I just need some advice regarding a good, free product filter. Here is some background information:
1. I am designing an online sporting goods store, using WordPress, Woocommerce, and the Shopkeeper theme.
2. When customers enter the store, they will then be presented with a home page that displays an array of buttons from which to choose the particular sport that interests them; e.g., 'Archery,' 'Basketball,' 'Baseball'...etc. This will, as stated, be the home page, not a part of the product filter.
3. Once they are taken to the page dealing with the sport they want, I want them to be able to apply a filter, choosing from three options:
a) Equipment
b) Apparel
c) Novelties
4. I am not a programmer/designer/techie, and have next-to-no skills in coding, so I need a filter that is totally idiot-proof, allowing me to format it to achieve the above structure. Any filter that requires html or similar skills would be worthless to me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You're literally describing links pointing to category pages.

    You don't need a plugin. It's basic Wordpress site structure and internal hyperlinks.

    Hi Yukon.

    Thanks for your reply; I appreciate it.

    Could you be more specific as to what I need to do? As I stated in my post, I'm sort of a beginner with WordPress, so I need a little more details than what you sent; i.e., what steps do I need to take, in order to set it up?

    Here's the route that the customer would take: Home Page (where they see an array of sports, then select one) > Sport Page (not sure just what this page would be called in Woocommerce's terms) > Product (e.g., 'Baseball') > They select a product (e.g., 'Catcher's Mitt') > They choose between 'Equipment,' 'Apparel,' or 'Novelty.'

    Once again, your help is appreciated more than you know, as I'm stuck.

    Maybe this will help to clarify what it is that I am trying to do. I have used the example of a customer wanting to search for a baseball product, such as a baseball shirt, baseball catcher's mask, or baseball novelty such as a baseball-related backpack.:

    Here's the navigation route that I would like for the customer to be able to take: Home/Landing Page (where they see an array of 'sports buttons,' such as "Archery," "Baseball," etc., thereupon selecting one, like 'Baseball,' in my example) > The selected Sport Page (Product Category Page; e.g., 'Baseball'). On this page, they then would use a filter which allows them to funnel down to their chosen sport and either 'Equipment' or 'Apparel' or 'Novelty'; e.g., "Baseball and Apparel" or "Baseball and Equipment" or "Baseball and Novelty."
    I am trying to use the YITH Ajax Product Filter; however, I don't really care which filter is being used, just so long as it works and I am able to configure it, being the non-techie type that I am.
