Our Story

Sports Katz came about while owner Lori was lounging poolside in Florida, reminiscing with her college-age daughters about their cheerleading days. Between Lori’s eight kids and their various sports, she had seen her fair share of sports merchandise over the years. At each new competition or tournament, she always noticed one thing about the merchandise offered: a lack of sports lifestyle apparel for girls. After internet searches, certain sports such as horseback riding and lacrosse proved even more difficult to find clothes for.

So with this knowledge and some encouragement from friends and family, Lori set out to build an online clothing store and catalog for sporty young girls.

“They” say that when you look good, you feel good. We’re not too sure who “they” are but we love this advice! That’s why Lori and her team strive to create the very best in youth and teen sportswear for girls. After all, our motto is Love it, Live it, Sport it! was launched in 2008 featuring funky socks, clothing and accessories for young female athletes. We started with just a small number of popular sports and a mascot named Maisy Monkey which inspired our initial website.

Thanks to the early success of our wildly popular socks collection, we’ve since been able to expand our inventory to include sports apparel for girls who play lacrosse, horseback ride and run cross-country.

All of our designs are created at our headquarters in Clearwater, Florida where we have in-house screen printing and embroidery machines. Because of this convenience, our creative design team and a growing demand for custom tees, a new service was soon added to our resume.

We started out doing custom uniforms for Tampa Bay area little league teams, schools and competitive club sports including cheer and dance. To this day, we still offer this service and have created special custom tees and accessories for companies, bachelorette parties, 5Ks and more.

Setting the tone for cute and comfortable sports apparel has been a dream to do. The real icing on the cake has been the growth of an online community we’ve seen since.

In the years since our inception, we’ve worked hard to go beyond just being known as a place to go to shop for clothing. We have sought to establish an online presence for young female athletes and their parents. Through the use of social media and our online blog, we have been incredibly lucky to connect with girls from all over. We enjoy seeing girls rock their various passions on their Sports Katz apparel!

We’re excited you’ve stopped by to visit us!
