Enlarging, inspiring & igniting passion through sport since 1994. Where innovation meets passion. Where attention to detail and precision matters. Our product portfolio offers superior quality where longevity and durability is our primary focus. We are here to serve our athletes and to ensure they have the reliable sports balls, equipment and apparel needed to reach their full potential.
WHO WE ARE
We began our mission back in 1994 when an attorney, Terry Robinson, teamed up with his friend, Paul Krech, who was an insurance salesman. Terry and Paul collaborated to create a company geared toward supplying high quality sports balls with unrivaled pricing to local youth camps in the Seattle metropolitan area. By 1998, we grew our product portfolio to numerous sports along with increasing our customer base to an international level. Over the last 26 years, we pride ourselves in enlarging and inspiring future generations to reach their full potential through sport.
WHAT WE DO
We manufacture, market and sell sports balls, equipment and custom apparel to customers across the world. Whether it is our #1 industry leading game softball to our rubber basketballs preferred by almost every major NCAA D1 program, we are here to serve you! We also give back to our local communities where our Bounce Back Program has provided over 10,000 free sports balls to underprivilege kids in 2020 alone. Your purchase allows our company to assist our communities. We appreciate your support!
"Sterling softballs have been our go-to ball for the past 4 years. The quality of the softballs and the quality of work that they do on the logo stamps are both simply unbeatable for the price. Customer service is also phenomenal (Donna is the best!). We will always be a Sterling program."
"Sterling Athletics provides our program with high quality Dri-Fit shirts and high quality custom softballs. If you need camp t-shirts, team issued gear, logo printed softballs and great ideas of shirt graphics then Sterling Athletics should be your choice. Donna, Terry and the Sterling crew provide excellent customer service with very affordable pricing to help any budget. Sterling takes pride in their products and it's the best company our program has ever found to equip our student athletes."
"Sterling Athletics and the products they supply to coaches all over the country are at the top of the sports equipment list, especially their softballs. I have used Sterling softballs for over 8 years and have never looked at another ball again. I was and will always be a satisfied customer. They are very helpful and professional in ALL they do, as well as the efficiency in delivery of the softballs. Quick and Easy. You won’t find a better sports product company that provides their customers with excellent service and value with the personal touch. Sterling Softballs will always be the “go to” ball for me."
"Prodigy Fastpitch has used Sterling as its exclusive softball provider for years. Besides the best customer service the ball holds up better than any other ball on the market. We not only use the ball for our indoor facilities, our teams practice balls but also have made it the official ball for all tournaments we run. We couldn’t be happier with Sterling!"
"We have been using Sterling softballs for 8 years now both with our travel team (now 18U) and in our hitting facility. They are the most durable balls we have found and priced far less then others that don’t last near as long. We use the .375 for practice and games and the .400 for the hitting facility. We also use the baseballs for the guys! Love the service and personal touch from this family owned business and thankful for our long standing relationship!"
“We’ve been using Sterling Athletics for all our Softball needs for close to 10 years. We use them for all of our tournaments, camps, and our 30+ teams all use them as well. They’re as well made as any premium leather ball on the market, they last longer than others, the price is much lower than other comparable premium balls, and you couldn’t ask for better customer service.”
"We order several hundred dozen balls a year from Sterling for our two 5 Star Exposure events. The balls never lose shape, never get soft spots, and the covers rarely tear. We couldn't be happier with the product and the service from Miss Donna is great."
"When it comes to ordering softballs for our academy and our college showcase tournaments, we count on and trust only Sterling Athletics and Donna Robinson. Their quality and customer service is top notch, they are THE BEST in the business. I would 100% recommend Sterling Athletics and Sterling Softballs for anyone I know."
"I started with game balls for our travel teams the “Sage” and was so impressed with the quality, price and durability that I soon included our over 35 Arlington (VA) Girls Softball House League teams. Sterling Athletics is a family run business and they have made me feel like part of that family. The customer service is personal, responsive and never overbearing. The balls are the highest quality continuing to perform long after the logo has been scuffed away. There are now many companies offering logo balls, but none have exceeded the combination of quality, price and customer service that I have received for the last 8 year."
"Here at D1, we ALWAYS use Sterling balls. Not only do they have the BEST customer service but their product is hands down the best as well! We have tried other brands and we are yet to find balls that hold up like Sterling balls. Not to mention the great seams pitchers love!"
"Sterling Athletics provides the best softball in the industry. Their customer service is second to none along with competitive pricing. We are proud to use Sterling Athletics as the official Softball and Baseball for Fastpitchmedia and Baseballmedia.tv."
"We have used the Sterling ball with our logo for my entire tenure at Harding University. The balls are durable, are delivered quickly at a good price, and the customer service is fantastic. We appreciate the relationship we have developed with Sterling over the years."
