West Raleigh Baseball had been buying uniforms the same way since 1958. It was time for a change.
In early spring, West Raleigh and SquadLocker embarked on a test to make direct-to-player custom uniforms available in 38 gear stores. Their goal was allow players to order their uniforms themselves.
The result not only exceeded their expectations, it left them with $7,600 in fundraising revenue - and counting - all while completely eliminating the uniform workload.

What do you mean by Direct-to-Player uniforms? How is that different from the way most teams buy?
Direct-to-Player uniforms refers to players and families being directed to the team’s custom store on the SquadLocker platform, where they would be required to purchase their league-approved uniform online, and have it shipped right to their home. This is a departure from the traditional bulk process where kids are sized up front, write a check, and wait several weeks for the complete team order to be produced, shipped, and then handed out by coaches. Sizing, payment, shipping, and all customer service is instead managed by SquadLocker on an on-demand, per-order basis, with gear shipped directly to each athlete’s home. This saves hours and hours of work for your staff, and your players and parents get their gear far faster, and with personalized customer service.
My program usually makes a nice profit by collecting money during registration and handing out the uniforms ourselves. How can I make up this lost revenue if the players and parents buy them directly and have them shipped to their
The SquadLocker platform allows you to apply up to 15% fundraising on all items sold in a store with a simple click of a button. We then send your organization a check each month for the fundraising revenue generated in the store from uniform sales and any additional spirit wear items that are placed in your team store.

Simply give us an idea of what you want your uniform design to look like, and we’ll make it a reality – for free! If you have a picture that’s a great start. Our on-site design team will work with you to create your free logo, and also determine name placement, numbering, and even sponsorship presence.

How long will it take for a uniform order to be delivered? We have a tight timeline between players registering and our first practice/game.
Once an order is placed we’ll have it shipped in as fast as 2 weeks, directly to your athlete’s home, faster than any uniform provider in the industry! Many items are also available in our Express Production program, which means custom uniforms can be shipped in as few as 5-7 business days.
