Under Armour Volleyball Uniform


It didn't take long for the Under Armour volleyball uniform to take the sports world by storm.

UA has made no effort to hide the fact that they were ready and willing to take on the big names in the volleyball apparel market.

When the Under Armour volleyball uniform was introduced, they raised the bar on developing performance fabric and moisture management technologies to a whole new level.


UA - "The Athletic Brand
of This Generation"


The company calls itself the “athletic brand of this generation” and they have managed to make a prominent name for themselves with their technically engineered uniforms as well.

They say they are the originators of performance athletic gear engineered to keep athletes cool, dry and light throughout the course of a game, practice or workout.

The original plan for Under Armour was to make a superior T-shirt that provided compression and wick perspiration off of a player's skin rather than absorb it.

This shirt is supposed to work with the body to regulate temperature and enhance performance.

Under Armour Volleyball Uniform Jerseys


Under Armour was the first of the many volleyball apparel maufacturers  to offer a line of volleyball jerseys with a half sleeve option.

A popular model is the Under Armour Elevate Jersey.

This volleyball jersey uses UA's signature HeatGear construction to wick unwanted moisture away from the skin leaving you cool, dry and ready for more.

Asics Volleyball Uniforms

Asics volleyball gear are featured in sponsored training and highlight videos used to promote the latest jersey, spandex, socks and shoe styles.


ASICS, just what does that word stand for?

  • A stands for anima
  • S for sana
  • I for in
  • C for corpore
  • S for sano

-- anima sana in corpore sana means "a sound mind in a sound body." 

In the 80s and 90s much of the research and innovation conducted for Asics volleyball uniforms, accessories and gear was in Kobe, Japan where the ASICS Research Institute of Sports Science is located. 

At the time the 16,000 square meter research facility contained an all-weather running track, a basketball hall, volleyball courts and test rooms. 

Their goal has been to "enable professional and recreational athletes all over the world to perform better, to reach a higher level and to enjoy themselves." 

With that in mind ASICS regularly invited world-class athletes to the Kobe facility to provide input and test the product. 

It's in this facility where shock absorption systems and other patented and trademarked design features and most unique innovations were tested.
