But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
KASH sports athletic programs exist to promote Biblical disciplines in our student athletes. While we obviously compete to win, even more, we desire to build Christian character qualities into the lives of our athletes. Among the disciplines we promote are sportsmanship, teamwork, diligence, self-discipline, perseverance, and submission to authority. Ultimately, success is measured not simply by looking at a win-loss record, but in seeing our students and coaches grow in their relationship with Jesus, cultivate the fruit of the Spirit, and display Christ-like behavior.

Because KASH participates in homeschool tournaments, all players in KASH sports must be homeschooled and meet the following guidelines that define a homeschool athlete: “Homeschooling” is defined to mean that a student’s education is parent-directed. As such, the parents shall be involved in their child’s education by assuming the role of principal or headmaster, thereby
(1) setting the date and requirements for high school graduation;
(2) electing and approving course materials and study schedules; and
(3) selecting tutors, correspondence courses, videos, computer courses, and similar resources for their child’s education.
For clarification purposes, a normal course load for a full-time student is six (6) core courses; therefore, if a student-athlete is taking more than three (3) courses at a public, private, or vocational school, he/she is not considered 51% homeschooled.
Full-time enrollment in a traditional public or private school is not homeschooling because the child’s education in such schools is not parent-directed. A player that attends a private, public, charter, or university-model school full-time is not eligible. For part-time students at these types of schools, the student must maintain at least 51% of his/her education from classes that meet the homeschooling definition.
If a student-athlete who meets the definition of homeschooling participates in a cooperative school, characterized by significant and direct parental involvement, he/she is deemed eligible.
In some states homeschool students are permitted to take classes at vocational schools. A student may take classes at such schools as long as he maintains at least 51% of his education from classes that meet the homeschooling definition.
Freshman, sophomore, and junior homeschool student-athletes who are taking advantage of dual credit/enrollment programs are required to take a minimum of three high school courses per semester through homeschooling. Senior homeschool student-athletes who are taking dual credit/enrollment programs are required to take a minimum of two high school courses per semester through homeschooling. These high school courses can be taken through co-ops or any other eligible parent-directed definition.
