A coach is to a team as a rudder is to a ship. Always there to offer words of encouragement and support, and to provide sage advice on how to improve so you can win, the coach is the backbone of any competitive team. Despite everything the coach does, he or she isn’t in it for the glory, but for the love of the sport. ChalkTalk SPORTS, Inc.® is a company run by athletes dedicated to creating fun and functional, yet unique, gifts for athletes of all ages. As a result, we never forget about the coaches, since we know how important they are to every player in every sport — and have tons of creative and unique gifts that any coach will love for years to come.

Personalized Clipboards for Coach

Every coach needs a clipboard, and® has customizable dry-erase clipboards that allow coaches to draw up plays – and make last-minute changes – with ease. Whether you play basketball, baseball, football, hockey, soccer, girls or guys lacrosse – or any other sport, we have a clipboard that is perfect for your coach.

Personalized Engraved Coach Whistles

One of our most popular coach gift ideas is our engraved whistles for coaches. These memorable keepsakes are thoughtful and loved by any coach lucky enough to receive them. Our engraved whistles come in multiple finishes, to suit all budgets and coach personalities. Each whistle comes with a display box for protection that will look good in their office, on their desk on a shelf. Make this gift even more personal by adding a coach’s favorite quote, name or team name. A coach whistle is a simple but very appropriate gift. It is one that can be used every day or as trophy to commemorate a hard fought season.

Your coach will be the proudest play-caller around with a personalized, engraved coach whistle. You can choose from 14K gold, 24K gold, or silver, plus a wooden case and/or a lanyard, depending on your coach’s taste. On the side of the whistle, we can engrave initials or up to two lines of text. With a gift like this, you don’t even have to wait until the end of the season. If your coach is a Father, give it to him on Father’s Day. It’s better than another tie. If your coach is a mother, and she wants something shiny get her a coach whistle – but I recommend you get her flowers, too. Birthdays, retirement and holidays are all great opportunities reward coaches for their dedication and hard work to their team.


You bet! We have a large assortment of engravable gifts for your coach, including a soccer engraved pen set, a paracord bracelet for any sport, or even engraved dog tag necklaces and keychains that make great hockey, lacrosse, or football coach gifts.


Your coach will love to display your team photo in a customized coach picture frame. Don’t have a team photo? No worries — a snapshot of a memorable moment, or even just a great photo of your coach will make a great addition to this gift that is sure to adorn his or her office long after the season has ended.


Of course we have customizable SportWORDS for your coach that are ready for the whole team to sign. Your favorite play-caller will never forget the great season you played together when everyone signs this handcrafted wood cutout that reads ‘coach’; and is ready to be signed by the whole team in silver marker – which is included. There is also a coach SportWORDS that is not recommended for signing, for those who want a cleaner, simpler SportWORDS option for their coach.


You bet! Add any text you like to the personalized mini engraved baseball or softball bat, or pick up a custom logo baseball for our baseball coach. For your hockey coach, choose from (or pick up both!) a personalized “thanks coach” hockey puck or a customized mini hockey stick for your coach. These perennial favorites are always a hit with coaches.

Softball coaches love to get personalized softballs, which can include text of your choice. If LAX is your sport, lacrosse coaches are huge fans of our personalized ceramic lacrosse mugs. When it comes to choosing the perfect personalized and customized gift for your coach, the most important thing is to think of what they like and what kind of personality they have and go from there.


Glad you asked. We have thousands of items that would make perfect gifts for coaches, including personalized mugs, water bottles, coasters, ornaments, jewelry, leggings and other apparel, performance beanies… you name it, we can help you turn it into a custom coach gift that is perfect for you coach, whether he or she coaches anything from hockey or lacrosse to figure skating or gymnastics.
