About Us

Blythe's Team Sports is a leader in athletics apparel and equipment sales. We have a dedicated sales force for our team, corporate, and nonprofit customers, as well as a retail store for your everyday athletic needs.

Our in-house production departments include screen printing, CAD printing, trophies, embroidery, engraving, and graphics. We can customize merchandize to your specification or our graphics team can help you in creating the perfect look.



In 1953, Lester and Ethel Blythe started Blythe's Team Sports under the name Griffith Sport Shop in downtown Griffith, Indiana. The venture was a complete sporting goods store that carried boats, motors, athletic equipment, fishing gear, hunting gear, and archery supplies. In the '70s, the Blythe Family opened another location called Blythe's Big Boys Toys which was a large boating and snowmobile store.

In 1979, the Blythe family opened the current location in Valparaiso, Indiana. This store contained a Gun and Archery range and sports equipment. In 2003, the departments separated and the athletic store, now known as Blythe's Team Sports was born. Over the next decade, the athletic shop grew to house a full staff of full-time printers, embroiderers, decorators, and a complete graphics department.

The Blythe's team also has experienced traveling sales people who service local schools, businesses, and organizations. We specialize in Adidas products and uniforms and are proud to be the largest Adidas dealer in northwest Indiana. In addition to Adidas, we also work closely with other leading brands such as Mizuno, Russell, Badger, Wilson, Asics, Easton, Louisville Slugger, Schutt, Holloway, and Under Armour.

We at Blythe's are family, and we are here to serve our customers. We take pride in our work, our service, and you - our customer!
