If someone you care about is taking a coaching job for a softball or baseball team, and you want to get them the best coaching gift, there are many great options to utilize. You want to get something that doesn't just show you are excited for them, but that they can also use for those long hours at the ballpark.
There are many great coaching tools and items that can make the days easier. Here are a few items you want to consider getting, along with a card that expresses how excited for them you are.
Any type of clipboard that the receiver can use while coaching will be a great gift idea. Magnetic baseball and softball lineup coaching boards allow the coach to put names at the allocated places for the lineup, and then they can go through the plays or diagrams they want to show.
These magnetic boards can often be written on with a dry-erase marker as well, so they are easy to erase and clean up when needed. Some are large enough to hang in the dugout. Look for accessories and features to customize the board, or have it match the team colors.
A high-quality insulated cooler that is easy to carry around will get used every game. This is something the coach can use to store their beverages and snacks for the long day. Some of these insulated coolers are designed like a backpack for easy travel, and others you can get with rollers for the trip from the parking lot to the dugout.
Custom Water Bottle
Order a custom water bottle with the word "coach" engraved, or have it specifically designed to match the team. This is something they can use that won't get mixed up with other water bottles. An insulated cup will keep their hot beverages hot and their refreshing beverages cold.
First Aid Kit
Although every facility where the team plays ball should have first aid supplies, every coach should have their own first aid kit. Get a kit that has supplies for all types of injuries, from cuts to breaks and burns. This kit should also be an easy-to-carry case for the coach.
Taking a coaching job is exciting, and if you want to express how happy you are that someone you care about is coaching, these are all great gift ideas. Pick one or combine them all and deliver the gift soon.
