Corporate • August 12, 2021

CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA (August 12, 2021) – The National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) announced a partnership renewal with Zephyr to continue as the Official Headwear Provider of the NJCAA. Founded in Loveland, Colorado in 1993, Zephyr partners with major companies like Lids, Fanatics, and Fanzz to offer exclusive styles not found anywhere else. 

“We are excited to again partner with and be the Official Headwear Provider of the NJCAA,” said Luke Price, Zephyr Inside Sales Coordinator. “Student-athletes are expected to give their best on the field and in the classroom, so we are excited to continue to provide our very best to those athletes, coaches, staff, and institutions.” 

With the agreement, Zephyr will provide the official NJCAA National Championship hats for winning teams while providing discounted team prices for NJCAA members throughout the regular season. 

“Winning a national championship is a significant feat and with Zephyr hats, our student-athletes’ experience will be even more memorable,” said Dr. Christopher Parker, NJCAA President & CEO. “The continued dedication from Zephyr goes a long way in our association and we look forward to continuing this partnership.” 

With more than 50 million hats sold nationwide, Zephyr is the home of original snapbacks and authentic fitted hats, with the most recognized and unique college and pro headwear products. Zephyr will work with NJCAA institutions directly to offer customized hats, including two raised logos, in any styles and materials. 

About Zephyr Headwear 

Zephyr Headwear was established in 1993 by former sports retailers who weren’t satisfied with the hats they had to sell in their stores. Zephyr initially focused on improving college hats and quickly became a major hat company by innovating many of the styles and treatments that are common in headwear today.  

Also commonly known as the “Z Hats,” Zephyr is the authentic college hat with a loyal following of those who only wear the Z. We make hats for over 800 colleges, and channel that same energy and creativity into building custom hats of all types for pro sports teams, clothing brands, and companies everywhere. 

We believe in the highest quality, most innovative design, and fastest delivery. As a multinational company, we make hats in China, Vietnam, and Bangladesh and sell throughout North America, South America, Asia, Europe and Australia.
