About Sideline Sports Doc

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 practice or the game, or needs immediate medical attention – a concept called triage.

Through our partnership with US Club Soccer we hope to assist thousands of soccer coaches across the country in making the game a safer place for young athletes.
