As more families choose homeschooling through high school, new sports opportunities are emerging. Here are just a few of the opportunities available each year:

  • National and regional homeschool sports associations—Your teen could compete in a regional or national tournament offered by one of the growing number of organizations providing support for homeschool teams.
  • Homeschool teams—New teams for homeschoolers are being organized throughout the country by homeschool groups and parents. You could connect with local groups, check on Facebook, or do a Google search to locate teams near you. You could also check our group search feature and use the “Sports” filter to quickly see if there are any sports groups in your area.
  • Sports associations—Local sports associations offer both recreational and competitive leagues for a variety of sports. Competitive teams provide the opportunity to play at the local, regional, national, and even international level.
  • Public school teams—You can check to see if your state has equal access laws, which allow homeschooled students to try out for spots on local public school teams.
  • Private school teams—Many local private schools let homeschooled students try out for their teams.
You can check with your local community to see which youth sport opportunities are available in your area!
