About Sideline Access

Sideline Access partnered with the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA) to develop the NIAAA National High School Sports App.  The National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association preserves, enhances, and promotes the educational values of interscholastic athletics through the professional development of its members in the area of education, leadership and services. To help further that mission with the use of new technologies, the NIAAA and Sideline Access provide free access to the NIAAA National High School Sports App to every public and private high school in the United States.

The features built into the app are similar to what is common with collegiate and professional sports apps, but until now have never been available to high schools on a national level due to the cost of development and maintenance. We have removed those barriers with the introduction of the NIAAA app.

The NIAAA National High School Sports App is a 100% FREE service we provide to every public or private middle school, junior high and high school in the United States. To register your school for FREE, visit: www.SidelineAccess.com/NIAAAapp.

“This app is so cool, even Kayne West loves it. Everything you need as a high school sports fan is just a click away. Want to know who number 37 on the football team is? Click on the team roster. Want a score from a game played two weeks ago? Click on the schedule. Want to listen to the game during cousin Sarah’s wedding? There’s a link for that, too. This app does everything except bring you nachos at halftime. And they are working on that feature too… Find it, Download it, Use it.”

Over 20 years experience building, operating and creating new and exciting web and mobile services. For me it comes down to this, “Passion, forward thinking, detailed planning, execution, serve others, always deliver…… and do it fast!” When I’m not working, I’m with my two boys usually at a speed camp, field, gym or some sort of youth sports event and consume a solid diet of sunflower seeds and hot dogs on a normal basis. I love youth sports and the opportunity to show what dedication, commitment and hard work is all about.
