Bigger Than Sports

Sideline Cancer Athletics

Sideline Cancer Club Sports

Sideline Cancer Club Teams play for something “Bigger Than The Game” making us the most unique organization in all of youth sports.  Our  teams embody the  “I Can Attitude & Believe Always Spirit” championed by our President, Cathy Griffith.  Whether you are sinking the game winning basket or clinching the game-winning hit, we can ALL Sideline Cancer through the sports we cherish.

What sets Sideline Cancer apart is our athletes’ remarkable ability to connect their passion for sports while inspiring those battling cancer.  Each of us have been touched by this relentless disease, and our platform allows these athletes to play for someone they love.  Take a look below to see the cancer patients our 12u softball team played for during the Summer of 2023.  With a remarkable record of 30-8-1, we prove that greatness extends beyond the field.  Join us in making a difference on and off the court!
