Edina Athletic Booster Club

Gift Ideas for Edina Basketball Players


I often get asked what parents can do to help their kids get better at basketball. My answer is consistent: Get in the gym and play as long as you’re having fun and don’t burn out. Birthdays and holidays can be a fun time to pique your child’s interest and enthusiasm for the game, so I’ve compiled a list of basketball gift ideas for your aspiring athlete. And the best part is that Edina Basketball will earn a 1-8% referral commission from Amazon on the gift ideas listed below and nearly anything else you buy from Amazon as long as you click one of our links to get there. It’s also a great list to share with grandparents looking for gift ideas for your athlete.

Happy holidays and here’s to the continued growth of your children and Edina basketball.

Go Hornets!

Sincerely, Coach Bryant

SKLZ Pro Mini Basketball Hoop

I debated whether or not I should even include this one and hope that I don’t get any backlash if closet doors or lamps get damaged. But how can you go wrong with an indoor mini hoop?

This is a bit more elaborate, but if you already have a hoop at your home, the Dr. Dish Shot Trainer should help inspire your basketball player to shoot more.
