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.

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:
(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)
COACHES (experience is helpful, but we will train
you for the sports area you coach)
Capture the Flag
Camp Games (ie. Parachute Games, Relays, etc.)
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.
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!! 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.
