Homeschool sports leagues: An interview with Chris Davis

Vol. 53, Prg. 31–35
July 19–23, 2004

One of the questions homeschool parents ask is, "How can my child participate in team sports?" As it turns out, there are a lot of options for athletes who go to school at home. This week on Home School Heartbeat, Mike Smith is joined by fellow homeschool dad Chris Davis to discuss homeschool sports programs. In 1997, Coach Davis formed the Home School Sports Network—a database designed to help homeschool teams schedule games and tournaments. HSPN now sponsors regional tournaments and maintains national team rankings on its website. From a wealth of experience, Coach Davis shares practical hints on developing a homeschool sports program.
