Every day in every community, men and women inspire students and athletes to achieve their goals. These coaches may be teachers, parents or mentors, and on October 6, the rest of us have an opportunity to thank them for all they do. Since President Nixon signed the proclamation in 1972, October 6 has been designated as National Coaches Day.

According to Zippia, the United States is home to nearly 100,000 teachers and coaches. Whether coaches work in schools, clubs or youth organizations, promotional products and apparel get the job done in showing them some appreciation.

We’re sharing a few ideas for National Coaches Day in this issue of Promotional Consultant Today.
