Let’s Talk, Call Us Now

Taho Sportswear is one of the region’s top suppliers of custom decorated apparel, sporting goods, trophies, plaques and awards.

From owner and president Mark Aho’s 28 years of serving as a coach and director of local youth sports teams to the rest of the staff (who you can meet on the Taho Facebook page), there is over 100 combined years of coaching, directing, refereeing, and volunteer experience for local community programs and schools.

Another way Taho likes to give back is raising money for local and national organizations and charities.  Among others, Taho was able to raise over $98,000 for post 9/11 aids, $17,000 for post Hurricane Katrina aids and tens of thousands of dollars for breast cancer awareness and similar charitable organizations.
