SPORTS DAY INFORMATION:
HCYA (Homeschool Christian Youth Association) Sports Day is an intramural physical education program that takes place at the Willowbrook Sports Complex, 12539 Perry Road in northwest Houston (see map below). We have five indoor basketball courts and an outdoor cement area for games. Games may include: volleyball, basketball, flag football, war ball, camp games, capture the flag, indoor soccer, street hockey, kickball, and others. Students choose four activities to participate in each day when they check-in. Students ages 6-9 are rotated through a pre-determined game schedule in teams that are set for the year to minimize confusion. Students age 10 – 18 choose from a list of activities for their age group.

Any shorts or pants worn must be appropriate and modest. Only tennis shoes may be worn – no sandals, street shoes, or heelies.

Specifically for ladies: skin tight clothing, short or revealing shorts, jewelry, and extreme hair styles and hair colors are not acceptable. NO HCYA SHIRT - NO PLAY!!!

Mailing in your registration will cut down your wait in line on the first day. Pre-registered students, with shirts, will be able to proceed directly to daily check-in to pay the daily fee. If new shirts are purchased with your registration you will need to pick them up first at the t-shirt area. Be sure to include the following when you mail in your registration packet:

LEADERSHIP ACTION TEAM:
WE NEED ADULT VOLUNTEERS:
STAFF VOLUNTEERS: Sports Day is NOT intended as a "drop-off" child sitting service. It is a program of homeschool families coming together to provide the fun and fulfillment of sports activities and homeschool friends. Don't just take advantage of the willingness of other homeschool parents to serve. Discover for yourself the joy of serving as a Sports Day Volunteer! Sports Day can't take place without help! Please let us know if you can help in one of the following areas:
COACHES (experience is helpful, but we will train you for the sports area you coach)
