"We are excited to be partnering with SSV for the next four years. Over the past 6 months, we have been working closely with SSV to develop a new range of apparel for Team Vic athletes. We are looking forward to the upcoming uniform launch where we will unveil a range that celebrates inclusive design, elite performance and sustainable materials." said Douglas Tsoi, General Manager, STR.
School Sport Victorian and STR look forward to launching the new designs in the coming months ahead of transitioning to the new apparel range through 2022 and 2023.
