I am writing a positive and strong recommendation for Northstar Apparel Co. based on the relationship we have had for the past several years.   They are a great company to partner with!

This past school year, our school and Northstar Apparel Co. partnered for an all school deal.  We did flash stores for all of our sports programs in addition to ordering plenty of lacrosse equipment.  Northstar was able to handle our large volume of orders.  Most importantly, on the rare occasion when an order did go wrong -- whether user error ordering or any kind of packaging or producing on the company side -- orders were fixed quickly with a very professional customer service approach.  Orders do go wrong in this business.  It didn’t happen often, but when it did things were handled right.  That is important to our client base.

I appreciate that Northstar is local, and involved in the community.  That relationship is critical and a big difference maker.  

I strongly recommend Northstar Apparel Co. to handle your apparel and equipment needs.  Please contact me if you have any questions

Hope all is going well. I wanted to reach out to you and let you know about a company that Hopkins and Edina are working with in regards to apparel. The owner of the company is a good friend of mine and use to be a Hopkins Police Officer. They're huge in sports and corporate apparel and have launched some great things and programs for Fire Departments. They do sell 5.11 Tactical and also work direct with Nike and many other suppliers. The difference with them is the attention to detail and service we're getting compared to others we've dealt with in the past. They're very good at design and making sure we're taken care of.  We just did a very nice order with them and things have been going great. Just thought I would pass on this information and see if I can make a connection for you. They are located in Hopkins and have a good turn around time.

Let me know and I can hook you up with them.

I wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how happy we are with our relationship with Northstar.  Northstar has helped us streamline our uniform and spirit gear into a seamless process that has allowed us to focus on the most important things - our players.  The added value that has come from Northstar and the addition of the Northstar camps has truly helped our organization become a more professional organization.

My experience with NorthStar lacrosse was awesome.  They make high quality gear and handled all the shipping for my high school players and their families.  It helped me focus on coaching and not sorting and sending gear.  They also create great logos and ads for me.  Nothing but positive things to say about the Northstar crew.

During my two-year term as team president, I have always received excellent service from Ian and his team at Northstar Lacrosse. Timing and quality have always exceeded my expectations and everything was communicated in a timely and professional matter. Northstar is an exceptional company in the lacrosse industry who does outstanding work from start to finish.

Bloomington Youth Lacrosse has been a loyal customer with Northstar for years. The personal service, competitive pricing and the incredible design program they offer make them our first choice for all of our association apparel needs, equipment and capital items.  The teams sales staff is very accessible, responsive and share their experiences with us to help us make the best choices. Northstar is great at identifying options when our budgets limit our options.  We would be lost without the resources and experience that Northstar and the staff in particular offer.

"Northstar Lacrosse's in-house design capabilities were instrumental in streamlining and expediting the customized uniform ordering process helping us free up our limited resources as a first year association."

Just wanted to say the apparel has been a hit. The coaches dig it. Nice job, and thank you.


The lacrosse apparel and camping industry has become very crowded with folks looking for a quick buck without actually working for it.  Northstar lacrosse has been a breath of fresh air as they are professional, passionate and hard working.  From holding a FaceOff Academy online apparel store to being featured as a coach at their camps, Northstar lacrosse has always gone above and beyond to help me as a coach and they continue to bend over backwards for athletes that attend their camps.  Can’t speak highly enough of Northstar Lacrosse as a company and as a group of people.

Looking for a long term relationship!
