Off the Sideline continues to build community on and off the court 
When Dawitt wanted to start a basketball team with his friends at the Plaza Townhome apartments, Off the Sideline provided scholarships for the entire team. Fellow resident, Abraham Fofanah, has known most of the boys since they were small and was their first coach. Their community has rallied behind them, with many adults and family members attending games.
Because we are passionate about keeping kids in the game, Off the Sideline has sponsored the team four times, with Portland Parks and Recreation Goldenball and Beaverton Hoops. We’re proud of their success both on and off the court. Working with our community partner, Volunteers of America Oregon, we’re helping to build healthy kids while strengthening our communities.

With a shared value of celebrating diversity in all communities, Off the Sideline welcomes our newest community partner, Todos Juntos.
Based in Canby, Oregon, Todos Juntos is dedicated to creating connections which empower children and their families to be successful in school, at home, and in their communities. We look forward to joining them in getting more Clackamas County kids into team sports.
New officers elected at ‘Super’ Board Retreat
The all-volunteer Off the Sideline board members and staff gave up their Super Bowl Sunday on Feb. 3 to meet to set the organization up for a successful 2019. In addition to financial and strategic planning, the team developed plans to manage growth and sustain our core foundational priorities.
Congratulations to our newly elected officers, Board Chair Sheryl Bunn and Vice Chair Gina Binole. Each will serve a two-year term.
