Manufacturer History and Warranties






History of First Team Sports

In 1996 Wayne Unruh and Jeff Roth co-founded First Team Sports, Inc. based in Hutchinson, Kansas. "At that time we were using my garage as warehousing and my basement as our first office" says Wayne Unruh, president of First Team.

From there things took off for First Team, quickly becoming known as one of the finestmanufacturers of outdoor and indoorbasketball equipment in the country. First Team is dedicated to domestic manufacturing. At First Team "MADE IN THE USA" is more than just a slogan, it's a way of ensuring quality.
In an industry where more and more companies are shipping manufacturing jobs "offshore" First Team continues to provide jobs building high quality, affordable products, manufactured here in the USA.
