7 Reasons to Go VC
VC is a company that puts community and values above profit, while expertly designing the best-looking apparel around. Let us convince you that VC is the best choice you'll ever make for high-quality uniforms.
Reason #1: We are the best product. Period.
When it comes down to it, we have the best product available. We know that every company out there will be telling you that, but we have proof to back our claims.
First and foremost, we've been doing this since 1998 – that's before current U20 athletes were even born! Through trial and error, we've been able to develop the best fabric, perfect the art of designing jerseys, and we constantly check in with our customers to make improvements to our products and offerings.
Fact: VC designs and makes every jersey featuring our signature rubber label from scratch. Learn more about our transparency in our Re-labeling 101 and VC Labels: Decoded blog posts.
Another reason we have the best product: a large portion of what we make is done locally, 25 minutes from our head office in Toronto, Canada. This allows us to maintain a higher level of control on quality, as well as react quickly to any issues arising before they reach our customers.
In a world where a high percentage of products are imported from overseas, we pride ourselves in providing athletes with locally-made products (it must be refreshing to know that there's a company in the community who prioritizes locally-made products, right?).
Reason #2: We are obsessed with innovation.
In 1998, we started making jerseys. Then in 2002 we introduced the art of sublimation to the ultimate community. Since then, we've innovated some of the best products on the market (Shorty Shorts, Revolution Hoodies, Reversible Tanks) and even created the Fully Sublimated Reversible Jersey.
In 2018, we began to re-think the way we approach making apparel completely, and embarked on our journey to go gender-free with our fits and sizes. Read all our our Fit Project evolution.
We love pushing the boundaries and we're tirelessly working on creating new products you'll love.
Reason #3: We will make sure you look good. Really, really good.
As mentioned earlier, we've been doing this for a long time, and that means we have this whole "designing jerseys" thing figured out. Luckily for you, we love to share our knowledge, so we always offer complimentary art services for all teams serious about choosing VC. If you have a cool/complex/fun design idea in mind, we'll do our best to get it on a jersey for you.
Reason #4: We let you feel it before you buy it.
We know the trickiest part about ordering new apparel is not knowing the size of the jerseys or the quality of the fabric, so we are happy to ship a no-obligation sample to any team interested in our jerseys.
Reason #5: We simplify the order and money collecting process.
We have offered team stores since 2012, and have since polished the system to make ordering as a team easier than ever! A VC team store lets you offer any item we make in one place, and players place their orders individually – gone are the days of scrambling to collect money!
Reason #6: We are more than an apparel company.
VC is more than just jerseys and shorts. We are a group of people who strive to make a noticeable change within our community.
We make sure to reciprocate the love we've felt from this community back into it. This is why we give back over 15% of our total revenue to support organizations, leagues, teams and players from around the world in the form of cash contributions, apparel donations and credits/discounts.
Our values define what we stand for: inclusivity, diversity, and equality for all - through committed and proactive equitable action. These values will never change – they are at the core of everything we do.
Reason 7: We have deals!
Who doesn't like a good deal? We constantly offer great ways to save resources – just visit our Current Offers page to find out!

We can understand if this seems like just another company's insincere sales pitch, so why don't we let our customers do the talking for us?
"We have been with VC Ultimate for the past several years and are very happy with it! They’re always very cooperative and extremely easy to communicate with. They will always tell us what they have to offer and what they expect of us, so there are no surprises. Thanks for working with us VC Ultimate! We make a great team!"

"VC has an incredible knack for interpreting the vision of a team (often expressed in random unfinished sentences and blurry pictures from the internet) into a strong logo. They captured exactly what we were looking for in a logo and uniform set, and the image has become a bit of a brand for our women's development work in our corner of Ontario. Serious talent in their design and customer service team. Thank you for being super quick to respond and so patient and flexible as we get our ideas together. The first showing of our uniforms had players asking for our logo in poster form!!! VC - you are incredible - thank you."
– Kerri Fraser
"Speedy delivery of some discs we ordered for prizes for our upcoming high school tourney...please do not fire the awesome employee who slipped us a bonus disc and the thoughtful note. Thanks VC for all you do to support grass roots ultimate."
– Mark Crawford
We are incredibly proud of what we do, and of the teams who choose to be a part of our family. Together, we truly believe we can promote a message of positivity, equity, and inclusion (while looking good doing it!).
