Our Newest Design: Toronto BRC Running Singlets

They're in!  The Toronto Beaches Runners Club is one of the most popular running clubs in Toronto with over 200 members and growing.  

Recently, the BRC asked me to help them come out with a new design for their running gear.  After a few weeks of collaboration and about 2400 emails later, we finally came up with a fresh and bold new look for the BRC members.

The design incorporates a number of distinctly Canadian and Toronto elements such as the maple leaf and the city skyline.  The BRC motto of left-right-repeat is also prominently displayed on the back of the jersey.

The design is used on singlets, short-sleeves, and long-sleeves using sublimation printing and the latest drifit fabrics.

CCYAA 35s Fully Sublimated Uniforms Are In!

It's that time of year again...the North American Chinese Basketball Tournamet.  This year, our boys and girls from Toronto are heading to Fort Lauderdale to try and reclaim the chip.

To help our 35-and-over Men's as well as the Open Women's teams, designed an ultra-light set of uniforms using sublimation printing on the latest and lightest fabrics.

Black for the Women's Team

Sublimation printing not only produces bright colours but can also reproduce complex graphics and gradients.  This technique fuses the dye right into the fabric resulting in an extremely lightweight uniform without the harshness and stiffness that accompany regular screen printing.

We Got Socks!

Five years ago, we brought high-quality fully customized sport uniforms to Toronto.  We've had the best players and best teams in Toronto wear our jerseys.

Get ready for the next evolution of customization.  Sure, Nike Elite socks are great.  You can get them in your colours and...well...that's about it.  What if you can get socks to match your unis exactly?  Do you have a team logo?  We can print that on your socks.  Unique camo pattern on your jerseys?  We can put that on your socks too.  How about your number?  your name?  your nickname?  Yes, yes, and yes.

At 9sports, we have you covered from head to toe.  Check out our socks now.  $25 per pair for high cuts and 20 for mid cuts.

Here are a few samples of what we've done so far.

Jordan at 50

I would be remiss if I didn't blog about Michael Jordan as he turns 50 today.  I won't say much other than he is still the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) and if you decide to bring up Lebron James comparisons in this forum, know that I will destroy you rhetorically.  To be frank, I'm not even convinced that Lebron is better than Kobe in his prime.

Here is one of the best articles written about MJ that shows you a deep (and at times) creepy insight into the man's psyche.  Even if you're not a fan of the man or the sport, I would encourage giving this article a read.

Following Andrew Wiggins

Most, if not all, basketball fans have heard about Huntington Prep phenom, Andrew Wiggins who is projected to be the #1 draft pick in 2014.  It's pretty crazy considering he is still in high school!

Check out this link for the Yahoo blog entry that mentions the video below.

In the video's first few highlights, Wiggins is seen wearing 9sports uniforms when he played for Vaughan Secondary in 2010.
