The tuff Story

tuff was founded in 2018 to solve a problem in youth sports.

Growing up, TUFF's founder, Adam Shibley, always had the privilege of wearing high quality sports uniforms.  However, that's not the case for everyone.  

Uniforms hold an innate power that can truly strengthen a team’s unity and confidence.  We want our donation recipients to know they are the best dressed on the field.

The TUFF Executive Team consists of student-athletes that all are passionate about how sports have affected our lives.  We are continuously working to prevent equipment costs and participation fees from being

the reason youth student-athletes cannot play.
