Degree Sportswear, Inc. was founded out of a garage on the beaches
of Southern California in 1988. Beach volleyball was at its
pinnacle, and Third Degree Sportswear was outfitting some of the best
up and coming volleyball players on the beach with unique and custom
High School kids and coaches from San Diego to Ventura
who wore Third Degree while playing beach volleyball would ask us
to make something special for their High School teams. It wasn’t
long before we realized there was a custom volleyball in-door market
that needed to be filled.
Directors across California began boxing up their old dinosaur uniforms
for the unique styles of Third Degree. Over the past 16 years
our underground popularity has spread to every state in USA, Puerto
Rico and Europe.
Third Degree has outfitted teams that have recently won JO’s
and Festival, our uniforms have been worn by players featured
on the cover of Volleyball magazine, and throughout the country many
of our teams compete competitively for state titles. In 2003 and 2004
Third Degree Sportswear outfitted more teams in the California State
Finals (Divisions I – V) than any other manufacturer.
