Basketball Players, Coaches, and Sponsors: Are You Showing Them Love This Season?

Basketball Players, Coaches, and Sponsors: Are You Showing Them Love This Season?


As your team battles it out this basketball season, fans will pack the bleachers – wearing face paint, swinging towels, and cheering their favorite players for the win. Sitting court-side, in addition to your players, you’ll have the force that helps drive your team to victory. The basketball chairs that line the court are reserved for team leadership such as coaches and managers, as well as the all-important sponsors and other VIPs who make it all possible.

You can’t set up just any chairs in this section. Regular metal folding chairs are uncomfortable, blah, and send the wrong message to sponsors. Instead, order customized sideline chairs to outfit your facility.

Why do custom basketball chairs matter? Isn’t it really about what happens on the court – the finesse with which your players move the ball, how high they drive up the score, and how many wins they rack up to put your team in line for the championship? While this is all important, what goes on off the court can help boost what happens on-court.

This means supplying your athletic facility with high-quality basketball chairs like the attractive and comfortable SC-1 Sideline Chair. With 3 inches of padding on the seat cushion and 1 inch of padding on the backrest, it won’t leave people squirming and wishing for the game to end quickly the way unpadded metal chairs do.


In addition to this, it’s fully customizable. Choose your frame color, vinyl color, and send us the design you’d like to print on the backrest, seat cushion, seat edge, or even all three! Not only does this display your team pride to competitors and all who enter your gymnasium space; it also lets sponsors know that you mean business.


Athletic Seating has a complete selection of basketball chairs for all members of your court-side crew. The Model 2617 provides a more affordable, slightly less-padded option that’s perfect for team benches or even use in the locker room. For super VIPs, check out our Model 3400C Classic Contour Chair. The contoured seat provides additional comfort, and like our other basketball chairs, it’s fully customizable.


What About Behind the Scenes?


The vibe in the locker room before the game, during halftime, and after the buzzer sounds is important to amping your players’ spirit up. While team leadership plays the biggest role in this, quality locker room stools can help. They give your players a comfortable place to sit, strategize, and take a break during the action. Customized locker room stools let players know that they’re giving their all for an organization that really cares.


With its clean lines and sleek design, the Model 124 Stool is a wonderful option for any locker room space. Choose the color you prefer for the brushed metal frame, as well as the color for the vinyl on the 1-inch padded seat. After printing your team’s name or logo on the seat, you can place these stools in your locker room to boost your team and mark the space as your own.


To show Coach your appreciation for all of their hard work, take the locker room stool out of the locker room with our gorgeous Logo Wood Stool. Made of solid, heavy wood with a 2-inch padded seat and customizable vinyl cover, it’s the perfect addition to any office.


Both on the sidelines and behind the scenes, Athletic Seating gives you a way to show appreciation for all the people who make your team amazing.

#1 Sideline Chairs

Invest in the Best: Why Quality Matters in Athletic Seating
Athletic seating for your sports facility is quite an investment. This includes the sideline chairs that give an up-close view of the action, as well as the locker room stools that give your players a place to rest when they’re not high-fiving and celebrating behind-the-scenes.


Without the human element, your sporting event won’t amount to much, which is why high-quality, comfortable seating is key. Your guests and athletes need to be able to relax…and if you can customize the seating to proclaim your team pride, that’s an added plus.

Purchase Quality That Will Last for Seasons to Come
When taking the plunge into purchasing a large number of sideline chairs, for example, it’s important to do your homework and purchase from a reputable dealer. Why? Sideline chairs put up with lots of abuse! Players and spectators are regularly in and out of their seats during a typical game, whether they’re heading to and from the court or jumping and cheering (or angrily booing a bad call from a referee). For better or worse, your sideline seating is part of the drama.


Because of this, your sideline chairs need to be the highest quality possible. If not, after a season or two, they’ll begin to break down. Cheaply-made chairs have inferior frames that can’t hold up to constant use, and you’ll notice that they begin to warp, sag, and refuse to fold up. (That last one is a real problem when you need to store the chairs away in between events.) The metal on the frames can also scuff and rust, while the vinyl can start to fade and tear, turning your team pride into an absolute embarrassment.


Clarin Products Keep Everyone Cheering


That’s why Athletic Seating is America’s number one dealer of Clarin seating products. Why Clarin? We chose them because they’re the creators of the strongest and most comfortable sideline chairs in the industry.

Take their Model 3400 Chair, for example. A beautiful balance of style, comfort, and affordability, the Model 3400 offers a lightweight, all-steel frame that was designed to withstand everything that your players, fans, and VIP guests can bring. The metal is powder-coated, which not only looks beautiful but will help it stand up against scratches and scuffs as the chairs are laid out and put away for each of your events.

It doesn’t stop at the frame, however. Clarin products were also designed to look and feel top-notch. The Model 3400, for example, features a luxe 3-inch padded seat cushion and a 1-inch padded backrest cushion. Clarin also offers choices with more or less padding, as well as specialized seating options such as their VIP Chair – the perfect way to tell your most important sponsors and team leaders that you appreciate all they do.


Choose Your Chair and Let Us Make It Your Own


Once you’ve decided which seating option is best, let Athletic Seating go to work customizing it for your team or event and its sponsors. From a wide array of vinyl and metal color choices to placing your chosen name, logo, or sponsor information on our products, our custom-printing methods make each item truly unique.

Back to School!


Back to School Is Almost Here: Is Your Schools Athletic Seating Ready for the Season?


It hardly seems possible, but summertime is ending. As the cookouts and days in the surf come to an end, people are folding up the lawn chairs and shaking the sand off of the beach chairs – putting them away until next season.

For school administrators, though, the season is just gearing up. With back to school just around the corner, organizations at all levels of the educational world are shining floors, stocking up on books, and getting ready for an influx of students.

They’re also prepping for the crowds that will soon hit campus gymnasiums and sports facilities. This requires more than just cleaning things up and giving them a fresh coat of paint. It also requires shiny new equipment – from balls and uniforms to scoring tables and athletic seating that’s customized for their teams.


Why Customized Seating Matters


Next to what’s happening on the court, what happens in the first few rows of any sports arena matters most. That’s why uncomfortable, run-of-the mill folding chairs won’t do.

For one, this is where your players – the stars of your team – will rest and rev up in between plays. This year, bring them back and show them love with comfortable, padded seating. The lightweight Model 2617 Chair is portable and durable, with a one-inch padded seat cushion. For additional comfort, our Model 3400 Chair has three inches of seat padding.


The padding level isn’t the only option that’s customizable, however. Choose from a variety of vinyl colors, frame colors, and print locations to create a front-row lineup of folding chairs that promote your team spirit in style. We’ll screen print your team’s name, logo, or both on the back and/or seat of the chair.

Booster Clubs and Beyond


Our customized Sideline Chairs and Slip Covers are good for more than providing reserved seating for your players. They’re also ideal for VIP seating for loyal booster club members, sponsors, or others who work hard to support your team.


Behind the scenes, sturdy and comfortable Time Out Stools and Model 124 Stools keep your team cool and ready to go while they’re strategizing in the locker room. They’re fully customizable, as well, showing your team pride both on the court and off.


Is Your Team Ready for Back to School?


Your teams have probably been training to get prepped for the season. Meanwhile, your gymnasium, arena, or sports facility has likely been receiving paint, repairs, and updates to make it look like new. Have you put off placing an order for custom seating? If so, it’s not too late. Contact the team at Athletic Seating and let us get started on your order right away.


With over 30 years of experience in creating custom logo seating, we’ll walk you through the process to ensure that you get exactly what you need – and receive it in time for the start of the sports season. We understand that when it comes to the excitement of back to school, there’s more to the equation than reading, writing, and arithmetic!
