With soccer season coming to an end, its time to acknowledge the efforts of our players and say thank you to our coaches… BUT I think trophies and plaques are super lame. They sit on a shelf and are usually made of super cheap plastic. I like useful gifts! For my daughter’s team, we decided to do water bottles for the girls. All the returning players will have them for next year. SInce we are the Bumble Bees, I got yellow stainless steel bottles and used black outdoor vinyl. The stainless steel water bottles I got at Discount Mugs. Out the door with shipping and tax, the bottles were $5.50 each (be sure to google for coupons).
For my son’s team, I made these dry erase clipboards for the coaches. I got the clipboards off Amazon and then personalized with indoor vinyl. Its not pictured, but the other side of the clipboard also has a full soccer field printed on it and dry erase marker.
