About Sideline Society
Sideline Society is the ultimate resource + community of support for youth sports team moms
Founded by me, Shaki Varado, to empower you mama's to embrace your active youth sports lifestyle, and to help you learn how to plan and organize your lives on the sideline, one season at a time.
Using my own #SidelineExperiments I dive into gear, tips, hacks, systems, fundamentals, everything we need to efficiently support our children and their busy sports lives; and actually have fun while doing it!
what the heck is a shaki?
And What Makes Her An Expert?
I'm Shaki, rhymes with teriyaki + is short for Shekera (like the singer)!
And I'm a busy mom, just like you, in my early thirties; whose kids happen to like to play sports. So, also like you, I sign them up, drive them around, buy them gear, and cheer for them on the sidelines. All in all, I've been pacing the sideline for just about every sport imaginable for the past eight years AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!
Even, when it gets stressful - Like when we've got: work, games, traffic, practice, laundry, conditioning, training, tournaments, and fundraisers. Or when I couldn't figure out what to do to best support them and how to do it.
So far I've realized that as passionate sports moms, we all want to be on time, get organized, plan in advance, support our kids, and give back to our sideline to pay it forward in massive ways but sometimes "life" gets in the way, and things get hectic!
And started experimenting with organization systems and planning tools. I started creating templates and finding strategies to help me organize my life on the sideline. I started blogging about my lifestyle as sports mom to pool my resources. Word got out and my goal became simple: share the strategies that have helped me to organize and plan my life on the sideline.
"Because I heart days that start with the letter "S"
And because they are worth every second of it...
