Get Involved! Join the Soldiers to Sidelines Network.



Empowerment Through Coaching

Drawn by a passion for sports, military members and veterans come to Soldiers To Sidelines looking to connect with their community through coaching. 

More Than X's and O's

While you’ll learn fundamentals from some of the best coaches in high school, college and professional ranks, the aim is to provide holistic insight into coaching.

Connect To A New Tribe

Unit, squad, troop. Being part of a team is fundamental to both service and athletics. Soldiers To Sidelines provides connection to a new tribe. 

"The STS experience equipped me with the skills to begin developing young athletes through sport, provided me with membership in a new ‘tribe’ and offered me a new sense of purpose at a critical juncture in my life when I need help forming a new identity. "

Matthew Hurley
U.S. Army

"This was an excellent seminar for service members to learn basic coaching fundamentals and apply military leadership principles in coaching youth. Highly recommended!"

Antonio Pinkston
U.S. Navy

"I wish I had this experience before I started coaching. I can look back at unmanly mistakes that could have been avoided."

David Young
U.S. Coast Guard

"Best leadership seminar yet! I loved the application of using leadership learned in the military to apply it to coaching football."

Richard Wilkerson
U.S. Air Force

"Soldiers To Sidelines is not solely about football or lacrosse, but about leadership, and more importantly, life. I learned more about myself than I did the game!"

Jonathan Dixon
U.S. Air Force

"I wish I could have done this when I got out 10 years ago! I highly recommend this workshop to every transitioning service member and vet. "

Steve Edson
Retired U.S. Navy
