1. Evolution Game Basketball/
Custom Lasered Evolution Game Basketball

Designed for indoor use, this ball is the #1 indoor game ball in America. The laid-in channels and moisture-wicking microfiber composite cover improve grip and control, and the Cushion Core Carcass provides a soft and consistent feel. The non-customized ball is available with Royal, Green, Scarlet, Optic Yellow, and Navy graphics, as well as a USA Special Edition version, and comes in official, intermediate, and youth sizes. All colors are NFHS approved game balls.

Wilson offers laser engraving with one, two, or three text lines with up to 12 characters per line to personalize this basketball, making it a special custom gift for your coach.


2. NCAA Official Game Basketball

No matter where the coach in your life shares their expertise, there’s nothing like having an official college basketball in their hands. Our official NCAA Game Basketball brings March Madness to every indoor court and raises the standards for performance and innovation.

The microfiber composite leather cover maximizes grip and moisture control, while the laid-in composite channels provide consistent texture for unmatched control. All these features combine with a Cushion Core Carcass to create a soft feel and unrivaled game experience. Lastly, this NCAA Solution Game Ball is approved for play by the NCAA and NFHS (the National Federation of State High School Associations).


3. Wilson 6 Ball Travel Bag

For coaches, there are few things worse than trying to travel with a floppy bag of basketballs. They don’t fit anywhere easily, are clumsy to handle, and consume a large amount of space. Wilson felt your coach’s pain and designed a bag that addresses the challenges of traveling with basketballs: our 6 Ball Travel Bag. This bag keeps an efficient rectangular shape while holding six official-sized basketballs, with room to spare. Three compartments keep balls separate and upright, and the bag features an outside pocket for storing an air pump, first aid kit, and more. No coach should do without one of these handy and affordable bags.


4. All Sport Ball Bag

One problem coaches shouldn’t have to worry about is keeping track of equipment. Wilson’s All Sport Ball Bag helps keep everything together by accommodating up to 8 basketballs, 18 footballs, 16 volleyballs, or 12 soccer balls. It also features an external velvet-lined zipper pocket for personal items. Perfect for practices and drills, this popular and affordable drawstring bag makes any coach’s life easier and more organized. The bag comes in black with the Wilson logo embroidered on the front.




5. NCAA Basketball Folder

Make it official: this accessory makes an excellent gift for a coach to keep their notes organized and in one place. This folder emulates an official NCAA basketball texture and holds an 8.5” x 11” notepad. Emblazoned with the NCAA and Wilson logos, it’s perfect for game notes and scouting reporting. It is designed with a tough exterior to protect your coach’s hard work and lets them show off their passion for the sport.
