Houston Homeschool Athletics (HHA) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization formed to provide amateur competitive sports for homeschooled children, ages 8 to 18. HHA will provide, under Christian leadership and guidelines, competition with teams from other types of programs--homeschool, private school, and public school.
HHA’s mission is to compete in amateur sports at the highest level and be a witness for our Lord Jesus Christ. We are a parent run, family oriented organization that wants to encourage and develop all kids, of all levels, not only in their athletic endeavors, but in their over-all development as young men and woman. WE HAVE FUN, AND WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US!
