Larry Amar Stickers & Magnets for Sale

Feb. 19, 2020, 1:57 p.m. (ET)

Larry’s step-daughter, Riley, with the assistance of one of Larry’s closest friends and graphic designer, Josh, created this sticker/magnet to honor and remember her father and for others to enjoy. Riley wanted to create something that represented who Larry was and what he stood for, so she drew her idea on a sheet of paper. Larry was a colleague, teammate, coach, manager, veteran and above all, a devoted husband to Abbey and father to Riley and Eli.

“We started with the fish because Larry’s faith was the foundation for everything in his life," stated Riley. “The USA flag and desert camo pattern on the hockey sticks represents his love and dedication to USA Field Hockey as a coach, manager and Olympian and his service to our country as a Staff Sergeant in the Infantry. The heart shows our love for him and his unconditional love for others. The heart outlines the number 3, the USA Field Hockey jersey he wore proudly as a member of the U.S. Men’s National Team and Atlanta 1996 Olympic Team.”

All proceeds will go directly toward the Larry Amar Family Fund.

Cost is $3.00 per sticker/magnet, including shipping. Size: 3" x 1.5"



Larry Amar Stickers and Magnets will be for sale on-site the next two weekends at the U-10 and U-12 Co-Ed and U-16 Girls Sheetz National Indoor Tournament, presented by YOLO Sportswear, at Spooky Nook Sports in Lancaster, Pa. and the remainder home FIH Hockey Pro League games in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Larry Amar was a truly incredible man who touched so many lives as a player, coach, friend, colleague, husband and father. Larry’s love and support of his family, friends, teams and country never wavered. He left a legacy of integrity, compassion, courage and sacrifice that has enriched and inspired not just our field hockey community, but all who knew him.

Larry made significant contributions to the sport of field hockey and to both the U.S. Men's and Women's National Team programs. He was the captain of the men’s Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games team and played on the U.S. Men’s National Team from 1987 to 1999. As one of the most decorated players to represent our country, he competed in more than 200 international games.

Following his playing career, Larry was a member of the U.S. Army for six years, serving two tours in Iraq. He earned the rank of U.S. Army Staff Sergeant in the Infantry and received two Army Commendation and Army Achievement Medals.

Larry returned to the sport he loved. From 2009 to 2018, he served as the assistant coach for Kent State University, teaching, inspiring and mentoring his student-athletes on a daily basis.

Coming full circle, Larry returned to USA Field Hockey in the role of assistant coach of the U.S. Women’s National Team and the manager of both the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Teams. He was honored and privileged to be able to give back and impact the next generation of Team USA athletes.

We are heartbroken by Larry’s sudden passing and the loss of a special member of the field hockey family. On behalf of USA Field Hockey, USA Field Hockey Foundation and the Kent State field hockey family, please consider joining us in supporting Larry’s wife, Abbey and two children, Riley and Eli, by making a donation in his memory. These funds will be available for Abbey to use as needed, including in support of Riley and Eli’s education.

Thank you for supporting and honoring Larry and his family.
