Playing sports in my youth gave me an opportunity to experience the highs and lows of life situations and how to handle both with dignity & grace. I won a city championship in grade school baseball and also was on the worst soccer team in my league later that year. Both sides of victory are important to learn because life is full of success and failure. How you handle both with cool speaks volumes for your character.

Supporting Access for All Kids
We are deeply grateful for the support from individual funders who make our mission sustainable and relevant. Donating means you are making your community stronger, helping kids when they are most in most need of social interactions and worthy role models. By donating you help create results that change kids lives and build healthier, safer communities.
Adolescents who play sports are eight times as likely to be active at age 24 as adolescents who do not participate in team sports. When you give to Off the Sideline, you’re giving a child access to health, friendships and positive role models - setting them up to make positive choices that will last a lifetime.
