Sidelined USA
Reuniting sidelined athletes with their passions


Share your story. Support each other. Build community.

Connection Groups

We host and monitor closed Facebook groups so you can connect with others sharing your experience. It’s easy way to ensure that you don’t have to walk through this feeling isolated or alone. We are stronger together and by sharing our experiences with one another, we can help alleviate one of the worst parts about being permanently-sidelined . . . feeling like nobody really “gets it” and that there’s not a natural place to talk about it past those first few weeks. The truth is, it can take months and years for athletes who have been forced to give up their sport due to medical reasons to come to a point of personal acceptance and feel hopeful about the future moving forward. By sticking together, we’re that support for each other no matter how long it takes to find our “new normal”.
