About Us

Champion Sports has been manufacturing high quality sports, fitness and physical education equipment for over 50 years.

Founded in 1961 by Bernard and Dolores Meller, Champion Sports originated in Bronx, NY. Bernard Meller (1918-2013) crafted his first piece of handmade sports equipment, the leather boxing rope with wooden handles. Bernard and Dolores worked side-by-side to create and run the business; which at that time was headquartered in their apartment building’s basement. While Bernard was busy hand crafting jump ropes; Dolores took care of the business’s finances. Their tireless hard work led to further ideas, and those ideas manifested into the sourcing and procurement of a wide variety of products. In their ambition to expand upon a dream, they decided to open their first location in lower Manhattan; Champion Sports became a household name within a family owned operation.

Our 150,000 square ft. expansive facility is known for its’ wide ranging product selection, on-time delivery and in-stock levels of merchandise. Superior assortment, service and reliability became an identifier for Champion Sports throughout the industry. In order to further service our continually growing customer base we will be adding on to our infrastructure in the form of additional space, personnel and expansive resources. We are proud to continue our growing initiatives, progressing with our third generation operations. 

At Champion Sports we stand behind our products and ensure that we can foster an experience that fully aids you in reaching your desired goals; Champion Sports has you covered. We carry over 2,000 products tailored for the team and individual athletic market, fitness enthusiast, physical education programs and the educational market.

Above all, we value our customers and ensure that our high quality products are always attractively and reasonably priced.


We Have Expanded

We are excited to share with you some recent news. Our initial efforts on expanding have started to take shape as we delve into the New Year! Due to an overwhelming demand of product, our supplies of sporting goods have increased to ensure that our industry leading in-stock levels will be better than ever.  The expansion comes out of the need to make additional room to our physical infrastructure accommodating an ever growing assortment of products and inventory.

We are currently working on adding 20,000 square feet to our property to house our sporting goods; along with an additional dock and loading units to maximize the efficiency of both inbound product and outbound freight orders.
