What is Sidelined USA?

A growing number of student-athletes are unable to continue to compete in their sport due to career-ending injuries, health conditions, or repeat concussions. They’ve been locked out of their passions due to circumstances outside of their control.

Sidelined USA is a non-profit organization that exists to reunite these permanently sidelined athletes with their passions and inspire them to find a meaningful way forward through resources, connection, and mentorships.

“Athletes that suffer career-ending injuries go through particularly challenging decisions as they process their injury and what it means for them moving forward. Sidelined provides crucial support to these athletes . . . [and] can make a huge difference in how well the athlete is able to cope with their injury.”
