ABOUT US

We are focused on making youth sports health and fitness better.

Sideline Sports Doc is 20 years in the making

Dev started his orthopedic sports medicine practice 20 years ago. He and the other sports medicine doctors in Sideline Sports Doc have spent many, many hours volunteering their time taking care of young athletes.

Thousands of coaches and parents use Sideline Sports Doc to better understand how to manage injuries by young athletes on the field, court, or ice. We help you apply simple common sense principles to figure out whether that youngster can stay in the game, must sit out of the practice or game, or needs immediate medical attention–a concept called triage.

Here's who plays for our team

 

Dev Mishra, MD

Dev founded Sideline Sports Doc in 2010. He's an orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist at Stanford University. His practice focus is on high school athletes. He also has plenty of experience as a patient with 2 ACL tears, a torn meniscus, a dislocating shoulder... He claims he can still run a sub 5 second 40.

 

Brian Cole, MD

Brian is a sports medicine specialist and Professor of orthopedic surgery with Midwest Orthopedics at Rush in Chicago. Brian is the head team physician for the Chicago Bulls, team physician for the Chicago White Sox, he publishes a huge number of scientific articles, and he has his own radio show on ESPN. We're pretty sure he doesn't sleep.

 

Michael Lynch

Michael was Global Head of Sports Sponsorships for VISA for 17 years. He is literally a “been there, done that” in the world of sports sponsorship. We're sure that he can tell you where to get a good cup of coffee in more than 150 cities around the world. Michael now says “surf's up” as chief marketing and revenue officer for the Association of Surfing Professionals.

 

Scott McRoberts

Scott is the Director of Athletics and Recreation at the University of Toronto, which probably makes him one of the youngest professionals in that prestigious position in North America. Scott knows how coaches think. And he's an authentic hockey-playing Canadian, which gives us a big boost in street–cred with the hockey community.

 

Mike Woitalla

Mike is executive editor of Soccer America magazine, a former player at Cal Berkeley, a current youth soccer coach and referee. That means he knows a lot about ... soccer. But more than that, Mike keeps close watch on the rapidly changing landscape of youth sports from several perspectives.

 

 

"The information clearly explains what coaches can do to help players without exacerbating the injury, and how to recognize the red flags that indicate the need for medical professionals. Sideline Sports Doc also provides crucial information to help coaches make the return-to-play decision."
-- Charlie Slagle, Chief Executive Officer, CASL, North Carolina

 

 

A collaborative culture

 

We work with large national governing bodies for sport to provide customized solutions to educate coaches in on-field, court, or ice injury management for young athletes. No one knows your sport better than you. When you work with Sideline Sports Doc you’ll find that our collaborative approach truly results in a platform that has the content, look, and feel you need.

We are doctors, trainers, coaches, and parents of young athletes. All with a tradition of service and excellence.

We've been walking our talk for a few decades. As a company we are committed to giving you the highest quality content and products that make lives better for young athletes of all abilities. We believe that what we are doing is not just about making sports better for kids, it's about producing a lifetime habit of good health that will stay with young people forever.

Here’s what coaches say about us

"As a soccer coach, we are often alone on the sidelines when players come off injured. In the best case situation, there are two of us, but sometimes there is only one. I am frequently faced with having to assess the extent of a child's injury, decide who to substitute for the injured player, and continue coaching the game -- all at the same time. Dev's advice from Sideline Sports Doc is clear, concise, and practical - just what coaches need when dealing with injured players during stressful sideline team management."
-- Sarah Weld, head of the East Bay United SC's Health and Wellness Committee in Oakland, Calif., and a U13 girls team coach with ten years' coaching experience.


“Sideline Sports Doc teaches simple and effective injury management principles that are very important for any youth sports coach. On field injury management is not taught as well as it should be in the typical coaching course. The mp3 format fits easily into a busy coach's life and is a great way to learn this material.”
-- Manni Klar, Former boys US National soccer team U14 coach


“We got a great response from our coaches when we provided them with Sideline Sports Doc’s PDFs and MP3s on injury management. The information clearly explains what they can do to help players without exacerbating the injury, and how to recognize the red flags that indicate the need for medical professionals. Sideline Sports Doc also provides crucial information to help coaches make the return-to-play decision.”
-- Charlie Slagle, Chief Executive of North Carolina's Capital Area Soccer League (CASL), a full-service club with 9,000 registered players
