Why Shop With Us?


With so many choices on where you can shop online these days, why would you choose to shop with Athletic Stuff?  Listed below are just a few key reasons why we have enjoyed such a loyal (and growing) customer base since we opened for business back in early 1999: 


Reason #1 - Superior Quality

Athletic Stuff offers a large selection of Athletic and Physical Education equipment from the top names in the industry.  We carefully choose each product to make sure it will stand up to daily use and abuse. Our products are designed for institutional use, so you get more bang for your buck.


Reason #2 - Industry-Low Prices

Our prices are up to 40% less than the big catalog companies and are consistently among the lowest prices in the industry.  Because we work mainly with schools, teams and government institutions, we operate on much lower margins to help stretch your budget dollars!


Reason #3 - Fast Delivery

We stock many items here in California as well as drop-ship orders directly from the manufacturers across the United States, and can deliver 90% of our products to you within 5 working days.  We process all orders the same working day and are happy to work within your deadline!


Reason #4 - Great Customer Service

We love what we do and it shows. Our customer service department is not only very friendly but also very knowledgeable. Not only do we supply athletic and physical education equipment, but we use it as well. We can tell you first-hand about our products, pricing, delivery time and availability without having to consult a catalog or a sales manager. This is our passion!


Reason #5 - Easy 45 Day Return Policy

Okay, you purchased an item from us and had it delivered, but somethings don't work out as planned.  No worries.  We offer a no-hassle, industry leading 45 day return policy. That's 50% longer than the big companies! Rest assured that as long as your item is in brand new, re-sellable condition you are covered for 45 days from the date of purchase.  Once an item is returned to us, we will refund you for the full price of your purchase (less ship charges), or exchange your purchase for something else - it's completely up to you!


Reason #6 - Pay No Sales Tax

Tired of paying sales tax at the big-name websites?  Athletic Stuff is tax exempt for all sales shipped to addresses outside the state of California!  With already low prices, this provides you more savings for your hard-earned money. How much more savings?  As much as 11% or more in many instances. Now that's a great reason!


Reason #7 - Great Selection

Athletic Stuff prides itself on offering many of the top names in the industry for a wide range of Athletic, Recreation and Physical Education supplies.  With over 125 different suppliers under our belt, our selection and quality can't be beat.  If you don't see the item you are interested in on our site, chances are we can still get it, but have not had the chance to add the item to our selection.  Please let us know... we may be able to save you time and money!           


 Reason # 8 - Free Shipping!

Athletic Stuff ships all non-truck shipped orders over $99.00 for free to all locations within the contiguous United States. This free shipping policy can save you potentially hundreds of dollars on larger orders. Orders are shipped via UPS ground or USPS, Monday - Friday. Expedited shipping is an option at an additional charge. Please contact us for further details if needed.


Reason #9 - We Are A Small, U.S. Based Business

Athletic Stuff is a small, California-based company that services and supports not only our local community, but also thousands of schools, churches, youth leagues, government institutions and individual consumers nationwide. We love our customers and treat them with the same dignity and respect we would want to be treated with.  Larger companies may do more business than us, but nobody cares more or works harder than we do.


Reason # 10 - Safe and Secure Online Shopping

Athletic Stuff takes your privacy and security seriously, which is why we use state-of-the-art, SSL website security to protect not only your online privacy, but also back it up with a $500,000 purchase protection, to further give you peace of mind. Shop with confidence knowing your online purchases are secure, private and protected!
