About Us

A solution created by a high school football lover for high school football lovers everywhere.

Our Mission

To provide professional-grade, custom products at affordable prices, helping every school, team, and business stand out from the crowd. 

We understand the pride that comes with supporting your team. On game day, the whole community gathers around to cheer on promising young athletes and make memories that last a lifetime. 

In some ways, you could say “game day” is a mindset, and at Prep Tailgate, we’re all about it. We’ve found that branded gear is the best way to show team spirit. It tells local players you’re rooting for them every step of the way, and it brings the community together for a night, making everyone family. 

Our Story

Former high school football coach here. I’ll be honest: since I started coaching years ago, I’ve seen almost every team fundraiser out there. Along the way, I’ve noticed a few things: 

  1. They were lame.
  2. They took way too much effort.
  3. The return didn’t justify the time investment. 

I’ve always loved the game-day atmosphere--with fans hyping up the teams and communities piling up in the stadiums come Friday night. As a coach, I know how passionate communities are about their teams and how they treat every game like it’s a holiday. Fans wanted products they could use for the big game and at home. 

Despite an abundance of Division I collegiate and professional team merchandise, customized high school and club team products were unaffordable or--worse yet--unavailable. I founded Prep Tailgate to enhance the game day's unbeatable atmosphere with branded tents that let you show school pride without tapping into your kid’s college fund.

Prep Tailgate allows you to join up with your local sports team community to customize your tailgating gear and represent your favorite team. That means baseball, soccer, football, or track and field--from youth leagues to high school and beyond. (You heard that right.)

With our instant canopy tents (and more products coming soon), we want to help you show your support from the first game to the last. Want to become the tailgate envy for years to come? Click below for a free quote for a custom tent.
