was founded in the Spring 2012 by the three Sica brothers, Anthony, Dylan, and Matthew, and their Dad, Anthony Sica. While cleaning out their family garage, they came
up with a great idea: give away all their used sporting equipment
to children in need.
The Sicas are a sports
oriented family and had a garage that is very similar to many
families. The garage was cluttered with baseball, basketball,
roller hockey, and football equipment that the boys had outgrown.
Most of the items were in great condition and could still be used
by other kids.
So the Sica family thought
that instead of throwing out all the equipment, it made sense
to give it all to kids who would use it. They have awareness and
compassion for underprivileged children who cannot afford to play
Family is committed to their community project which resulted
in the formation of "2nd Chance
Sports". Their mission is to improve the
lives of children in disadvantaged areas in New York to create
a healthier and safer environment through the power of sports
and play. We have collected and distributed over 25,000 pieces of equipment in the past five years to areas in Nassau County, Suffolk County and New
