The Sidney High School Athletic 200 Club plays a big part in providing for the entire Sidney City Schools Athletic Department. The 200 Club was formed in 1990 to help fund construction of a new weight room at Sidney High School and is still going strong thanks to the Sidney community. Since that time, the club has worked with the Athletic Department, head coaches, and individual sports booster groups to donate over $177,000 in equipment and has awarded $43,500 in scholarships to over 77 female and male senior athletes. The 200 Club has purchased items for each of the following sports:
- Basketball: breakaway rims, shoot-around machine, press box in Sidney High School gym, scoreboard at Sidney Middle School
- Baseball/Softball: portable sliding pit, pitching machine, dugouts and infield sod at Sidney High School fields, scoreboard, brick dust, PA system
