A few of the UcFit Crew members were pretty lucky to have the chance to compete for and win the 2013 Vail Shootout Masters Division with Team Jagermesiter last summer. It was an awesome event and the first time we played with the Jager squad. We again won a championship together this fall at the Revolution in Randolph, NJ. For both tournaments we had the same goalie, Anthony Katagas, an awesome goalie and overall individual. Anthony was not only nominated for best beard of 2013...in the world!...but also the movie he produced, 12 Years a Slave, won the 2014 Academy Award for Best Picture and it won the Golden Globe in the same catagory! CONGRATS, ANTHONY! We are very proud to be your teammates and sincerely hope all the excitement hasn't cut in on your goalie training...we have a game in Connecticut in two weeks buddy, you better be ready!

 

Anthony sent us his selfie from the seats! Then he went to get his award!!

Last Friday was an awesome day. I headed back to my hometown, East Windsor, to connect with two long time but long lost friends that grew up a few houses from me. As we sat together it was like we never missed a beat, what a great feeling. Kevin Burrowes is now running a great screen print business called Thread Wolf and is a branding genius! Kwaku Nyantekyi has been killing video and custom animation work with Shroom Heads Media. Combine the three of us and that's one talented and creative group! We're all putting our heads together to make opportunties to support one another and for Uncommon Fit - that means some awesome limited screen print tops (for guys and GIRLS) and VIDEOS! Finally!!! Couldn't be more excited and happy to share in this journey with more friends - we're all trying to live our dreams and pursing them together will be an adventure!

 

    In the Thread Wolf Lab!

Going over video from recent Central America UcFit Surf Trip with Kwaku!

 

Just like old time, having fun with Kevin in the Thread Wolf Shop (yes, the Shop and Lab are two separate spots!)

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!
