ABOUT OUR SEASON
Our High School teams strive to develop skills and confidence in players in a fun and encouraging atmosphere. Our High School teams have Clinic opportunities throughout the spring and fall, and have opportunity to play summer basketball through a league in Omaha. The season runs November through March, and the teams will compete against other local homeschool teams as well as those in surrounding states. They will also compete in the Regional and National Homeschool Championships typically in late February and early March. In addition to their own game schedules, our High School players have the added benefit of being a part of the larger Roadrunner family and join in the fun of watching and cheering on the younger boys and high school girls in their games.
PRACTICE TIMES & LOCATIONS
We practice two days a week beginning October through March. Practices will not be held on game days. Practice times can be found on our Calendar page.
HIGH SCHOOL TRAVEL
Several of our games will require overnight stays. Travel provides opportunity to build community, and therefore, family travel is encouraged.
