No More Sidelines


How to Participate

No More Sidelines provides children and young adults with special needs an opportunity to play sports year round and to participate in community events and outings. Please visit the Events page to learn about specific events. There is no cost to your child to participate with No More Sidelines. Essential athletic equipment and uniforms are provided. Uniforms are issued at the beginning of each sporting season and collected at the end of each season. Your child does not need to participate in every sport to be a part of No More Sidelines.

To the right, you will find the required forms that need to be completed by a parent or legal guardian of the athlete and submitted.

What types of events are available?

It is not necessary to play a sport to be a part of No More Sidelines. In addition to athletics, there are monthly social and community outings. Some past events include Halloween and Christmas parties, pool and pizza parties, Christmas caroling, trips to area state parks, roller skating parties, dances, and family picnics.


We attempt to update our web page on a regular basis. We also send out a quarterly newsletter about upcoming events. If you would like to receive a newsletter, please call (231) 724-7142 and leave your name, address, and phone number or e-mail us at You can always call the voicemail line 231-724-7142 for the most current activities.


Physicals are required for your child to participate in athletics. The physical needs to be updated every three years. Forms will be provided. If you are unable to obtain a physical for your child, No More Sidelines will have a qualified licensed health professional available at practice one evening each season to conduct physicals.

Welcome to the team!

No More Sidelines invites you and your child to join us. We are a recreational league that works with your child – no matter what their needs may be. We will help your child to build friendships, learn new skills, be involved in physical exercise outside of the school setting, be part of a team, and be involved in leisure activities with their peers.
