With the goal of preparing male and female athletes of various skill levels for competition on and off the field, Pipeline S.C. encourages personal leadership in the community and provides strength and agility training, nutritional guidance and sports psychology through its professional staff.
"I was fortunate enough to meet George Altirs a few years back and immediately understood his vision and passion for the game,” Pipeline S.C. Vice President Santino Quaranta said. “Capelli Sport will be a household name in the coming years, and we are proud to offer this to the parents and players in Baltimore. Branding has always been such an important priority from day one for myself and Sean and this is another step in transcending how players look while representing Pipeline."
"Santino and I have been traveling to and from New York for months to meet with the design team to build the best custom package for our players," said club President Sean Rush. "The custom jerseys/shorts rival anything we have done in our eight years as a club. This package will include more playing items and training gear for the players than previous seasons. On top of a larger uniform package, the options will be amazing including puffy jackets, sleeveless training tops, 1/4 zip hoodies, polos, and items only available because of the Capelli Sport brand,” Rush added.
