WEATHER:

SEVERE weather conditions such as SERIOUS flooding may warrant that Sports Day be cancelled. Use common sense, but don't assume that Sports Day will be canceled because it is raining. If Sports Day is being cancelled a notice will be posted on this website AFTER 6:30am (see below). On questionable days check the notice, if there is no cancellation notice on this website expect that Sports Day is taking place. An email will also be sent. Make sure that Sports Day has the correct email addresses for students and parents.

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.

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:

  • Administrative Helpers  (for check-in payments - then assist coaches or monitor behavior)

  • Sport Sign-Up from 8:00-9:00am  (can be managed by mothers with children under 6 years old)

  • First Aid

COACHES  (experience is helpful, but we will train you for the sports area you coach)

  • Basketball

  • Flag Football
  • War Ball
  • Volleyball
  • Capture the Flag
  • Camp Games (ie. Parachute Games, Relays, etc.)
  • Floor Hockey

  • Tumbling

If you want to help, email Jeannie Tate at    or call Jeannie Tate
@ 713-397-3878.  Sports Day does not run effectively without a sufficient number of volunteers. Join your kids for the fun.

 

EMAIL:

Sports Day uses email for ALL communication to participating families. If you do not have an email address for the family or for the parent responsible for getting the students to Sports Day, we HIGHLY recommend that you get an email address!!  If you do not have a computer at home, you can get an email address through your local library. Email addresses are used only for communication from HCYA. All email addresses are kept in strictest confidence and no email addresses, or other personal information, is shared with any other organization! Let Jeannie know of any email changes during the year.

 

REGISTRATION:

All registration materials may be filled out the first day. Come early - it takes awhile to go over it with your kids and fill out all of the forms. Be sure to bring information on your Insurance and Emergency Numbers. If you have not filled out and signed the forms ahead of time A PARENT MUST BE THERE TO REGISTER.
