YES!  You can stay enrolled with HLA while playing sports.  TSSAA requires that you file a Notice of Intent no later than August 1 each year that you are playing at a TSSAA member school.  You must then notify the principal/coach of the school where you are intending to play by August 15.  Please read the TSSAA Homeschool Rules.

No, HLA does not sign the TSSAA Homeschool Eligibility Form.  The form is to be filled out by the parent and the coach.  HLA can provide a transcript of in-progress courses or a letter stating the courses that are being taken to be attached to the form.  “The Principal at the school and Director of the School System where they are going to participate need to sign the form.” ~Bernard Childress, Director of TSSAA.

Activities that do not fall under TSSAA guidelines and playing sports at non-TSSAA schools is allowed if the school approves it.  This is up to each individual school’s policies.  You can check with your local school to find out what’s available.

No, your student cannot stay enrolled or registered with HLA while playing sports with an FHSAA member school.  FHSAA requires that you register with your county and file a Notice of Intent each year that you are playing at an FHSAA member school. It’s important to understand that if you do not withdraw your student, it is not only your student that becomes ineligible for play, but the whole team would be in jeopardy of losing eligibility.  Please read the FHSAA Homeschool FAQs.

If you have a student playing sports, please contact Kelly.  She can answer any questions that you may have and get your student withdrawn for sports.  Once your student finishes playing sports, you can enroll the student back into HLA officially.  If you have other students enrolled with HLA, those students can stay enrolled.  It is only the student, not the family, who will need to be withdrawn.

No, HLA does not qualify as a non-member private school under EL12.  FHSAA requires us to count all students in the state of Florida and not only the students in the individual county.  HLA has more than 125 students in the state which make us ineligible.  HLA students MUST enroll with the county in order to play under FHSAA guidelines.

Activities that do not fall under FHSAA guidelines and playing sports at non-FHSAA schools is allowed if the school approves it.  This is up to each individual school’s policies.  You can check with your local school to find out what’s available.

YES!  You can stay enrolled with HLA and while playing sports.  Students wanting to play sports under AHSAA must enroll in a member school that serves the areas in which the student’s parents reside.  Students must enroll within the first 20 days of the semester.  There are other academic requirements.  Please read AHSAA Homeschool Guidelines.

Activities that do not fall under AHSAA guidelines and playing sports at non-AHSAA schools is allowed if the school approves it.  This is up to each individual school’s policies.  You can check with your local school to find out what’s available.

This bill was put together by a group of citizens of the great state of Alabama that have been lobbying since 2005 for AL state public education establishment to allow homeschooled students equal access to sports and extracurricular activities.

Yes, you would need to contact the school in the district which offers the activity to find out the requirements to participate. You should specify that you are enrolled in an Independent School, rather than a homeschool to avoid having to meet the nonpublic home-based education requirements (registering with the county).

Whether a local school will allow a student to play is up to each individual school’s policies.  The student must meet all receiving school eligibility requirements. You can check with your local school to find out what’s available.  Keep in mind that the school may have other requirements such as fees or academics that would have to be met in order to play.
