Flying Saucers

At Sauce, our mission is to create fun and functional active wear which promotes healthy lifestyles by making it enjoyable to be outside. To embody this mantra, we wanted to come up with a way to support elite athletes who are out striving for excellence in their sport. They would be Sauce ambassadors and inspire people to keep moving.

Because their speed and ability is “out of this world,” almost alien, we have created a program appropriately named the Flying Saucers.

This program supports athletes by producing each Flying Saucer’s own original pattern and creating Sauce products to help them in their sport. Not only will you see them competing in their headwear, you get a chance to purchase their print for yourself. And a portion of the proceeds goes directly back to the athlete to support their endeavor.

Check out these Flying Saucers and help them take flight.

Interested in becoming a Flying Saucer?  We will be taking applications for new program ambassadors in February, so check back for the application form.
