Champion’s Choice entered the team sports arena in 1999 with a mission: To deliver New England’s institutional and recreational sports teams the best uniform and athletic equipment brands with the best quality and service in the field. Today, our customer roster boasts many of New England’s most prestigious colleges and prep schools – including Bates, Bowdoin, Holy Cross, Norwich University, BB&N, Rivers and Kimball Union Academy.
