Wellington March Madness 2017 Not many tournaments know how to celebrate the street to elite aspirations of young basketball players today better than Wellington Travel Basketball Association. Going on it’s 13th year with a 10 year sold out record, Wellington March Madness is a US Amateur Basketball sanctioned event that boasts of 110 teams from Grade 3-12. A testament to its prestige is the 5,000 it draws annually along with big brand sponsorship’s, including ESPN coverage. “We are very honored to attract top teams and talents from all over Florida every year. We are proud to have pulled off another one for the books this year-with the help of like minded brands like Allen Sportswear, whose uniforms we have been wearing for 9 years, and other brands like Coca Cola, ESPN Radio, the Miami Heat, Chick Fil A who have always supported our efforts to promote grassroots basketball. When you play in a very competitive tournament like ours, it always helps when you can raise the bar and make the experience more memorable- we take time to honor every champion, every runner up. Our MVP’s were honored not only with trophies but with their personalized MVP swag and all our champions received their limited edition championship shirts, even the crowd got into the social media excitement. All these little things that our volunteers and parents and sponsors put together- it just adds up and makes the kids and coaches look forward to the first weekend of March every single year.” Chris Fratalia- President of Wellington Travel Basketball Association. Allen Sportswear is one of few US brands that offer full customization of team uniforms – any look, any design, any cut. “Uniforms play a big part in a player’s experience. When they step into the court, all eyes are on them – competitors, fans, family, recruiting scouts… we want to give these kids the best chance to stand out and get noticed for all the right reasons. It’s a fact that when you look good, you feel great and will likely perform that much better. I honestly think it helps teams like Wellington to come out looking and playing good year in and year out and inspire confidence in their athletes.” says Todd Marinshaw, Allen Sportswear President. Speaking of elite, this year also saw the Wellington organization honor recent graduate Trent Frazier. Trent, the #2 rated Point Guard in the state Read More.

When looking for the perfect uniform for your team, it’s easy to get confused and lost in the crowd. It seems like every day there is a new company with the most atrocious website telling you they’re going to “hook you up”, which usually means cutting corners that lead to mistakes and delayed shipments. Then there are always your big name brands, which in all honesty do a fantastic job in their retail products but rarely impress when it comes to customizing team sports uniforms. Twelve years ago I was playing in a highly competitive church basketball league wearing shiny green uniforms that looked like they belonged in an episode of Star Trek. The team had not won much over the previous seasons so the coach asked if anybody could help us get a new look. I volunteered for the job and was able to design and outsource what looked like professional quality uniforms. That was also the first year we won the championship and I don’t think it was a coincidence. Being able to redefine who we were and being able to fully customize the look we needed to stand out gave us the confidence we needed to play like we mean it. The next season we had coaches from the whole league asking us to make them basketball uniforms and that was the beginning of Allen Sportswear. As our clients grew from the neighborhood school to top ranking AAU® teams, celebrity leagues, semi pro teams and even movies like “Meet The Browns”, we eventually started our own factory in order to have complete control over production time, quality of material and the ability to make changes and upgrades on the fly. We were also able to ensure that every fabric is hand picked, every stitch is hand sewn, and every detail carefully crafted. This resulted in uniforms that never fail to impress and bring clients back year in and year out. Since then, Allen Sportswear has become the brand of choice for champions and up and comers alike, teams who want a unique look that represents the level of performance they want to achieve. If you are ready to break out of the stereotype and want to begin their journey of endless possibilities, we invite you to join Team Allen and experience what it Read More.
