Student Athlete Community Service Network Inc. (SACSN - pronounced SAX-SEN) is a 501 (c) (3) organization based in Palm Beach County, Florida. We are a national network of high school student-athletes that provides volunteer services to charities, government agencies, and community programs in need of reliable volunteers. Additionally, SACSN organizes many national programs, projects, and events annually.
We are committed to our roots in Palm Beach County, Florida and thanks to the Honda Classic Golf Tournament, we directly support hundreds of local high school athletes annually with scholarships and help in locating college athletic opportunities. Our local projects have supported many community organizations and charities including Nicklaus Children's Hospital.
By organizing monthly community service projects and events, SACSN is dedicated to providing athletes with a platform to "Stand Out" and "Give Back" through sports and community service.

The NCAA Division I Council passed legislation that allows partial scholarship sports such as baseball to use merit-based awards and scholarships for student athletes without counting against a team’s athletic scholarship limit. NCAA Div. 1 has 11.7 athletic scholarships per roster, NCAA D2 has 9 athletic scholarships per roster, and NCAA D3 has zero athletic scholarships per roster. Maximizing merit scholarships can play a huge role in making college baseball and education more affordable. SACSN helps demonstrate leadership and maximize merit-scholarship opportunities.
Since 2011, SACSN athletes have donated thousands of volunteer hours supporting charities, projects, and community programs across the country. We have hundreds of alumni receiving college merit scholarships and competing at the collegiate level annually. Over 90 alumni have been drafted by Major League Baseball including fourteen first-round selections and nine making their MLB Debut. We continue to grow our programs and projects, ensuring that SACSN continues to serve the community as an educational, leadership development, and community service resource.
Our programs and projects provide a platform for student-athletes to build leadership qualities through competition and volunteerism. Programs, projects, and events are designed for athletes to participate from anywhere in the country.
