LAHA's desire is to demonstrate and build Godly character with a purpose to challenge and bring out the excellence in youth sports!
Current sports being offered:
Boys and Girls Soccer
Boys and Girls Basketball
We are an independent Christian homeschool competitive sports program, not affiliated with any other entity.
Everyone in our organization is 100% volunteer. Everyone pays the same fees for their kids to play as you do.
We have family maximums, scholarships and fundraisers to help any in need so that no child is unable to join a team.
We seek to have our teams play at the highest level of competition.
Our families and organizations work together to overcome burdens of transport to practices and games by using various locations and ride sharing.
We feel we have high quality coaches in both spiritual maturity and coaching knowledge.
We try to be as accommodating as possible for every family but still we know that many of you can't be at every practice and game and our coaches are understanding of that. We practice and play at different sites to try and share the burden of families traveling from every direction. If you and your child want to be a part of this program, please don't let finances or other obstacles prevent that, we are here to help. We appreciate each and every one of you for all the effort and time you put in to making this such a joy to be a part of.
Our team makeup:
We try to maximize the playing time for each child by having them play both at their age level and giving opportunities for more experienced players to play some games at the next age level. Example - last year our 16U games were played by a mix of experienced 14U and less experienced or younger 18U players.
Players are assigned a primary team and some players will be asked to play on a secondary team. Parents can decide if they want the secondary team or not, thereby offering more playing time for those who really want it and less time for those that prefer to have less nights and travel occupied with sports. There is no additional charge for your secondary team.
We understand there are unique situations in each family and we will do our best to accommodate those. It is sometimes a difficult balance between being competitive and not compromising too much family time and we will do all we can to work that out with you.
Costs for 2017
For what we offer, our costs are the lowest we are aware of. Fees are different based on a number of factors but mostly on number of games and tournaments for each age group. You can find specific costs on each sport's page.
Player's will be assigned a primary team, by the coaches, based on age and experience. Your fee will correspond to the team you are assigned to.
