SidelineSwap, Inc.

SidelineSwap’s mission is to empower athletes. By providing athletes with more affordable access to gear, our goal is to give everyone a chance to play the sports they love.

We’re well aware of the cost associated with playing these days, and know there are many kids who simply cannot afford to purchase equipment. We’ve identified some incredible programs who work with athletes who struggle to afford sports equipment, and strongly encourage the SidelineSwap community to donate their extra gear so that more kids can have the opportunities they have.
