Inbetween outfiting teams in our exclusive brand of soccer uniforms, we like to branch out into other youth sports. Case in point: some very cool basketball jerseys we did for the Sonics4Ever team, pictured here. These young hoopsters are headed to the Spokane Hoopfest, the largest 3-on-3 streetball basketball tournament, later this week.
The team’s moniker, honoring the storied Seattle SuperSonics NBA franchise (which moved to Oklahoma City in 2008…don’t get us started…), was developed by graphic artist Rafael Calonzo.
If you’re interested in finding out more about basketball uniforms that we may be able to offer, please contact our Marketing Director, Mike Carter, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call toll free 1-888-411-3687.
We spent a great day this past Saturday at the Maple Valley Soccer Association SoccerFest 2012. Here’s a peek at the day’s fun and festivities, including an appearance by our beloved Soccer Ball Car. Thanks, Maple Valley!
The jerseys also included each child’s name on the back with #11, representing the year in which the school was founded. Code Four Athletics worked with the school’s co-founder, April Shiosaki, to supply the jerseys. April found us through Googling ‘soccer uniforms’ and we’re so glad she did!
The Code Four Athletics Soccer Ball Car showed up during the jersey presentation, adding “icing on the cake” to the day’s events, according to April, who took TONS of pictures of the kids with the Car. Thanks, Blossoming Hill!
Retiring players are often removed from their final games a bit early in order to get one last standing ovation in front of a full crowd, but they’re not usually replaced by kids. That’s what happened to Vadim Evseev of Belarus’ Torpedo Zhodino, who left the field for a final time, only to see the 5-year-old son of the CEO of a Russian children’s charity take his place. Both clubs agreed to the stunt as a thank you to the charity, which hosts local soccer camps for kids. The boy himself, Khrisan Dzeus, certainly wasn’t charitable to his opponents on the pitch, weaving through defenders in his new uniform to knock home a goal, and the look on his elated face after the score is priceless. It’s great to see two careers end well
Take a few minutes and check out this video from our friends at San Juan Soccer (Friday Harbor, WA) backed by a great soundtrack of songs. The U15 boys’ team is featured in our white/forest Winchester uniform kit. Rock on.
