I was playing in my Sunday morning run last weekend, having won my first game and was just starting to get warmed up. You see, while we love our customers, the one drawback to all these holiday orders and a fast growing business is that I have not stepped on a court in 3 weeks (and PS - I’m old), so that first game almost didn’t count.
In business, they often say timing is everything. Well, that seems to be the case in basketball too.
Ball Handling Coach and Performer Jesse "Snake" Muench has made a career for himself based on his "sick" ball-handling skills.
Jesse cought a taste of our gear and loved it so much he has started wearing it in some of his ball-handling training videos. So we decided to do a contest with him to see which of his videos people thought was the best! Everyone who votes has a chance to win a pair of our DRYV Baller 2.0 Shorts, too.
If you've been a POINT 3 fan for a while, you know we focus on the performance of our gear over everything else. But technical performance isn't the only part of the game. If you don't look good on the court, you won't feel good, and you won't play up to your potential. That's why we continue to launch new colorways for our performance apparel, whether it's in the shorts, socks, tops, or warm-ups.
I grew up in New York City, playing ball outdoors virtually year round. True hoop-heads know that even without a gym of our own, we never let weather get in the way of our game.
Apart from the sting of the ball on the tips of my fingers and a constantly runny nose, there’s one thing I always remember from working out in the cold – the gear was never right. Coats were too bulky, sweatpants wore out (anyone else get those holes in the knees?) and hoods blocked my peripheral vision.
It’s because we know there are ballplayers out there working on their jumper in sub 40 degree temps that we made the DRYV Warm-Up Suit.
In just under a year, we've secured more than 150 teams around the country wearing our DRYV Team Uniforms, including some of the top programs here in our hometown Atlanta, like Top Notch, The Skill Factory, and the Atlanta Hawks Youth Basketball Programs. And now we've just delivered our first international uniforms, to the PuHu Juniors club in Vantaa, Finland!
Our recent patent announcement has generated a lot of interest from the media - and not only the basketball press and bloggers. Take a look at some of the recent media stories talking about the importance of managing your sweat and how it can change the way games are played!
