UcFit was born in August of 2010 in central New Jersey. With a few thousand dollars, some creativity, hard work and the support of the people around us we've grown our baby. Today is a day to remember as we brought in samples for our new partner, 4point4, an organization that has done uniforms for the US Women's Volleyball team, and that is partnered with NBA greats Larry Johnson and Bill Walton to spread their philosophy based around an awesome give-back model. We are "powering" their sublimated uniform development in all sports with Boys and Girls Basketball, Soccer and, of course, Lacrosse going first. I had the pleasure of working out of their office in Manhattan, in the Fashion District, today. It is incredible to know that we have built something that has carried us this far; I never imagined sitting where I am to type this blog back when we began. So much for teaching Latin, ;), apparently there is a career here!

The UcFit Crew was honored to be invited by our partners, 4point4, to the inaugural Tewaaraton Award 'watch-list' announcement ceremony. Quick info - the Tewaaraton is given to the best male and female lacrosse player in th country. The ceremony was packed with big names in lacrosse as we got to mingle with Rob Pannell, Gary Gait, even Mark Herzlich of the NY Giants (who had a full scholarship to Johns Hopkins for lacrosse but went on to play football), along with many others. Uncommon Fit did the design work for event sponsor, 4point4's 2014 offical t-shirt for the Award organization. How freakin' cool? At the event it was kind of like a basketball player seeing Michael Jordan, Kevin Durant and Karem Abdul-Jabbar all in the same place...except for lacrosse... We're so proud to have had the chance to be there and to be involved in the 2014 Tewaaraton campaign in our small way.

With the trophy! Sweeeettt!

Our pick is Princeton's Tom Schreiber who played with out team at CityLax's Southampton tournament in 2012!

Coming up playing HS lax in the late 90s in NJ, it was clear then that the game was very centered on the hot beds. I was originally born in Maine at the Augusta State Hospital (circa 1982), and except for Bridgeton Academy there wasn't a ton of ball being played all the way up there either. I'm still not well informed on the status of the sport in Maine but recently through Instagram I met Chris from @MainelyMesh, a Maine-based lacrosse stringing company headed by a young guy currently playing at Haverford College. Great guy, but what's even cooler is he sent me a dope t-shirt featuring both lax and my birth state! I may not have spent a long time living in Maine (birth until 2 yrs old), but my mother keeps me proud of it and getting to represent even in a small way makes the shirt special to me.

   Mainely Mesh T and a cheesin' Moose - also from Maine.

Last week we launched our new site and we were so pumped to see the traffic. Thanks to all of you that visited and especially to those of you who gave us feedback! As we did our first foray into monitoring website data, we are going in the right direction! Last week was our 'soft launch' because we wanted to put the site out and continue to offer a place where our partners and fans can learn more about us. Our 'hard launch' will featuring a bunch of products we've been working on, some custom BeSpoked UcFit snapbacks, a solid brand hoodie to represent, and our double-secret stretch zip up hoodie. Let's not forget our new performance socks either, but those won't be around til the beginning of spring ;).  It's coming, and between these items and our new site, all of which we built together, we are looking forward to the next six months.

We are so pumped up to get the new website up and out there for everyone! It's been a great three years since we began in 2010 and the UcFit Crew is growing, learning and loving every minute! If you've been following our efforts, you know that this is our third website in as many years, as we have worked, we continuously evolve our identity to find our voice. Now we feel like we've got a simple, clean Homebase where you can cruise around, see what were up to, find out how funny we are and, oh yeah, check out our gear...that's an important part. Explore the site, our goal for the blog is to update you with some cool places to explore, artists to see and listen to as well as any other random brilliance we come across and appreciate. There is so much out there!  Check out our social media channels (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) for standard and not so standard updates, promos and lots of pretty pictures. With the 'soft-launch' of our site (we've got some pretty cool ideas that we're working on for the site still) we have our FIRST PROMO CODE - Blue Steal. A homage to one guy who is 'really, really ridiculously good-looking.' As we continue to update, will be adding in new products regularly along with more photos of happenings. Make sure to see where people #wearucfit all around the world and send us a pic of yourself doing something sweet, in a sweet place, with your sweet UcFit threads. We welcome any and all feedback as we couldn't have gotten to where we are without the support, encouragement and advice from those around us. Uncommon Fit is a team, a community, it's growing and we want you to join in the 'Do what UcFit' crusade.

Thanks for the time and energy to find out more about us!

Be happy, stay positive, do cool s**t.
