Searching for a gift for the coach on your list? Look no further than the 2020 NFHCA Coach’s Gift Guide!

Electric Whistle

In this year of COVID, coaches are looking for new and creative ways to keep practice safe for all…enter the Electronic Whistle, the ultimate coach stocking stuffer. Or try the alternative Hand Squeeze Whistle.

Blue Light Glasses

Coaches are swapping out their sunnies for a new kind of eyewear as they adapt to their new working environment — help them protect their vision with a pair of blue-light-filtering glasses. These are a nice option.

Athlete-Inspired Masks

Send the coach in your life a mask that’s suited specifically for athletes (these are good and here’s another option), and while you’re at it, why not include a mask lanyard that keeps their mask accessible no matter where they are on the field.

A Way to Stay Active

It’s a well-known fact, coaches are just as competitive as their athletes, so gift them something that will keep them challenged. Try a subscription to a workout app (like this one) or surprise your coach with a team-driven holiday-running challenge.

Inspirational Books

Coaches are always looking to improve in the off-season — gift them a few inspiring reads like Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art by James Nestor, One Life by Megan Rapinoe, or Good To Go: What the Athlete in All of Us Can Learn from the Strange Science of Recovery by Christie Aschwanden. Or if you think they deserve to take their mind off the grind, try a field-hockey focused novel rated by NPR as one of the “Best Books of 2020.”

Field Hockey Art

Coaches are always looking for inspiring pieces to adorn their office walls and what could be better than a custom piece of field hockey artwork? Order a signed 12×18-inch print by Philadelphia-based artist and illustrator, Kah Yangni, who created a piece specifically for the upcoming NFHCA Virtual Coaches’ Caucus.

A Keepsake

Give your coach a framed photo of your team so that when they look back on 2020, they remember the people and relationships that made it an especially memorable year.
