For more than 40 years, Longstreth has been committed to supporting the development of female athletes across field hockey, lacrosse, and fastpitch softball. Our mission is to offer the best selection of equipment, performance apparel, and footwear -- almost all of which are specifically designed for the female athlete. Our managers are experts in their field. Longstreth has field hockey specialists, current and former athletes, and coaches, who know their game inside and out, providing expertise in developing and sourcing the best products available to support female athletes. They work closely with our suppliers to develop and provide the best possible products to keep young female athletes at the top of their game.
Longstreth works with all levels of teams and players. We have experience working with teams from the national teams to colleges and universities of all sizes, to high-end travel teams or clubs to recreational leagues, down to kindergarten youth leagues. We have team pricing options available for any team, school, or club. We carry all the top brands and styles to outfit your team and will work with you to find what you need and still stay within your budget. Longstreth.com has a wide variety of field hockey equipment, stick packages, goalie gear, performance wear, footwear, apparel, and accessories.
Longstreth has been working for young female athletes since 1977. Barbara Longstreth, a pioneer in the United States in playing and coaching field hockey and lacrosse at the national team level, started selling field hockey sticks out of the trunk of her car. Barbara's passion for women's sports, and commitment to providing personal attention for young female athletes started Longstreth and remains the core of our culture and mission today. To this day we continue to pride ourselves on the idea that Longstreth is a company committed to the field hockey athlete, founded and managed by players for players. We strive to be the destination for all field hockey athletes to find the best products, solid advice, and great community support for the game.
In February of 2020 Longstreth partnered with BSN Sports. Specifically, BSN SPORTS has acquired Longstreth's lacrosse and softball team sports businesses. Longstreth retains its dominant field hockey equipment business, focusing on selling its full line of equipment to field hockey teams/clubs, dealers, universities, high schools and other institutions. Longstreth will also continue to provide field hockey equipment, apparel and footwear to retail customers in its unique retail facility in Spring City, PA.
In February of 2021 Longstreth strengthened its position as the #1 supplier of field hockey products in the United States with the acquisition of CranBarry, Inc., based in Wilmington, MA. CranBarry is the second largest domestic supplier of field hockey equipment and the leading wholesale distributor to a strong collection of retailers from big chains like Dick's Sporting Goods to independent specialty shops. Longstreth will combine the operations into its revitalized facility in Spring City, PA, featuring a unique retail experience as well as warehouse and office spaces. Longstreth currently features leading international hockey brands TK of Germany, Gryphon of Australia, Ritual of Australia and Osaka of Belgium.
Longstreth is located outside of Philadelphia, PA. Our campus contains a unique Retail Store. Our selection of field hockey sticks, goalie gear, turf shoes, apparel, and equipment outshine any of the "big-box" retail sports stores. But it's our staff that really sets us apart. You'll find athletes who are just as passionate about the game as you are and can help you find just the right piece of equipment.
