Calling all coaches, teachers, instructors, and anyone that uses a white board………
Have you heard of Zipboard? Do you want to look like the coolest coach or instructor around? Well then keep on reading because I am going to let you know about an amazing white board that you can easily take anywhere you go.
No more carting around bulky clipboards or oversized dry erase boards to hockey game or practice!
Zipboard is the first and only hockey portable, retractable whiteboard that users can wear on their hip or stow in their pocket, backpack, or equipment bag. Once extended, this patent-pending product is a rigid, erasable writing surface that comes complete with a stowaway dry erase marker and eraser.
This version is perfect for hockey coaches to diagram plays during the game or drills during practices.
It can even be customized with your hockey team name and logo. Customize your Hockey Zipboard during the ordering process.
Each Zipboard comes with 1 Beltclip, 2 Strap Hooks, 1 Dry Erase Marker, and 1 Dry Erase Eraser. Shoulder strap not included.
Dimensions: 17” long x 12” high x 2-1/8” deep (open); 3-1/8” long x 12” high x 2-1/8” deep (retracted)
This Zipboard coaching board makes a nice gift for hockey coaches, they can really use a portable whiteboard on the ice!
So we tested out the hockey Zipboard and are impressed with it. The Zipboard is certainly a head turner and you can see the envy of the other coaches when using it.
The Zipboard is compact when closed and easy to put in a coaching back. Then when taken out and expanded, it becomes a rigid white board with one side a blank board and the other the hockey rink.
The Zipboard cleans up well as with most white board surfaces.
There are currently 10 different Zipboards; from a plain white board, to women’s lacrosse field and more. So not matter what you are coaching, teaching, instructing, or wanting to explain, there is a Zipboard that will get the job done for you.
It is very convenient that in the Zipboard, there is a storage place in the end for a dry erase marker that comes along with the Zipboard.
For those that wish to, there is a belt clip to be able to keep your Zipboard nearby. There are also 2 strap hooks that can help you to hang your Zipboard up such as on the arena Plexiglas.
For our trials with the Zipboard, it was used with box lacrosse and now hockey. It is very convenient for the coach to be able to take out the Zipboard and quickly expand it to show the players what needs to be worked on in a game. Then just like that, away it goes again until the next line comes in.
I recommend that you take a look at the line of Zipboards. A Zipboard would make an awesome coaches gift and something that they probably do not have yet and would likely love and get a lot of use out of.
I always like to put what I would like to see as an improvement in a product. For the Zipboard, I would like to see the image of the rink on the Zipboard in color. I think that it would help especially with younger players to have the lines and ice markings in their proper colors so that when the coach talks about the crease, blue line, and so on, that the kids can visually see them on the Zipboard.
Other than a full color image of the rink, there is nothing else that I would love to see with the Zipboard. I totally recommend and would still purchase the Zipboard as it is.
