Who We Are
Team Sports Planet is a multi-channel team sports company. We proudly serve the needs of the athletes, coaches, athletic directors, administrators and parents that make up this vital community.
Our customers are schools (public, private and charter), travel teams, recreational teams, clubs and leagues, youth and adult, municipalities, governing associations, affiliates and sanctioning bodies, school districts, independent companies and all levels of government, including the United States' Department of Defense Education Activity.
In keeping with a company that is the World Wide Web's premier source for team sports uniforms, apparel, and equipment, our customers are located throughout the world. Our offices, design and production facilities are based in and around Philadelphia, PA.
We market and coordinate the delivery of high quality team sports products and services at competitive prices. In addition, for select customers, we develop and administrate custom web stores.
Most importantly and appropriately, we operate our company as a team.
Where We Came From
Team Sports Planet began as the dream of co-founders Kari Altman and Brian Kerrigan. After getting their first taste of the possibilities of internet business while living in New York City and Los Angeles in the late ‘90s, Kari and Brian decided to move back to their hometown of Philadelphia, PA in 2001 to start a company then known as Youth Sports Planet. They saw a unique opportunity to leverage the World Wide Web to help busy parents, coaches, and administrators outfit their players in great looking uniforms at competitive prices with outstanding customer service.
As teams returned season after season and word spread, the scope of the company expanded to include players of all ages and the name was changed to Team Sports Planet. Now a global company with regular customers on four continents, we continue to strive to combine the selection and value of a large internet company with the personal touch of your local shop.
What We've Accomplished
Team Sports Planet’s extraordinary growth has won both regional and national awards. We have been featured in Inc. Magazine’s “Fastest Growing Companies,” while at the same time managing to remain family owned and operated. Twice named one of the “Philly 100,” TSP also received the Department of Defense Education Activity contract award in 2009 and again in 2014, in addition to being a proud small business GSA contractor since 2013. Our greatest claim to fame is the over 10,000 teams that we have helped to pursue their athletic goals.
