Your Guide To Buying Basketball Team Uniforms

May 23, 2017

First impressions are important, and that statement is as true on the basketball court as it is in everyday life. The first item your opponents and fans notice the moment you step into the gym is your team's uniforms. The attractiveness, quality and color of your uniforms can convey a lot about the importance you place on your team and basketball. Uniforms can also greatly affect the way your team plays. Comfortable, top-quality and stylish uniforms can encourage your team to play with more confidence than ever before. Custom basketball uniforms from Cisco Athletic combine the highest-quality fabrics, with comfortable trims, roomy neck styles and professional screen printing to create uniforms that will help your players excel. This comprehensive guide is geared toward helping you choose the best custom basketball uniforms for your team.

What are the general rules for youth basketball uniforms?

The rules regarding youth basketball uniforms vary greatly from league to league, so it's important to be familiar with your league's rules before choosing your custom uniforms. However, most leagues suggest that jerseys be numbered on the front and back. The number’s color should contrast the shirt color, so it is easy for players, referees and fans to see. In most leagues, basketball jerseys must be tucked into a player's shorts at all times.

What does a typical basketball uniform look like?

Basketball uniforms typically include team jerseys and matching basketball shorts. Approved basketball shoes, socks and accessories (like wristbands and headbands) are commonly chosen by teams, but they are not often regarded as part of the uniform. At Cisco Athletic, we offer everything from traditional custom jerseys and shorts to shooting shirts and team backpacks.

How do I shop for my team's basketball uniforms?

Choosing the perfect basketball uniform for your team can seem stressful at first. It's important to consider players’ ages and skill levels, as well as the amount of money you plan to spend on each uniform. You'll also want to decide if you'll be customizing the uniforms or choosing from our Cisco Athletic stock uniform options. You can begin by logging onto the Cisco Athletic website and choosing whether you're seeking men's or women's uniforms. You'll then be able to choose from a selection of standard uniforms, reversible uniforms, shooting shirts, shorts and accessories. We make it easy for you to locate your ideal uniforms and request a quote in a matter of seconds. Our customer service team is also available by phone or live chat to help every step of the way.

We use the highest-quality materials and most groundbreaking sublimation, screen printing, embroidery and tackle twill production methods to ensure you're 100 percent satisfied with your custom uniform purchase.

Which basketball jersey options do you offer?

What fabrics do you use for your basketball uniforms?

Our Cisco Athletic basketball uniforms can be made from a variety of fabrics to suit your team's comfort, style and budget needs. Our standard and reversible jerseys are available in Lightweight Poly Mock Mesh, Ultra Light Smooth Faced Poly, Mid Weight Poly Mock Mesh and Lightweight Pin Dot Mesh fabrics. They can be ordered as standard tank or collegiate cut jerseys.

What styles of basketball uniforms are available?

Cisco Athletic keeps up with the latest trends in the athletic industry, so you're guaranteed to find the style jersey your team is seeking when shopping with us. We offer standard or reversible jerseys in tank or collegiate cut variations. They can be ordered in round or V-neck styles, and are available with tailored or athletic fitting.

How do I know which size to order?

Our men's, women's and youth basketball size charts make it easy to determine which size jerseys and shorts are suitable for your players.

What is the difference between men's and women's basketball uniforms?

Men's and women's basketball uniforms are very similar in style. However, slight design differences are made for uniforms to fit men and women differently. Women's sleeveless jerseys typically have wider shoulder straps and smaller arm openings. Youth basketball jersey sizes are simply smaller than those of men's and women's uniforms.

Yes, you can log onto our Cisco Athletic website, shop for basketball uniforms and request a quote at any time.
