HRK Eagles Boys and Girls Basketball 2021-2022

 Skills, competition, teamwork, discipline, devotions, and fun!

 (New to homeschooling and what that means? See Below!)

REGISTRATION is now OPEN !!

 

COVID/Mask Information:

           HRK is made up of families. A majority of our families have expressed they do not want to practice or play in a facility which requires masks. Our season has been formed to support these wishes to the fullest extent possible. However, anyone choosing to play with HRK is also free to choose to wear a mask at any practice or game.

           The schedule is based on current conditions and mask expectations as of July 2021. There may be changes in requirements by facilities were are entering. If they require a mask at that time, and you/your player do not want to participate because of that, please communicate with your coaches as soon as possible, and stay home from that particular event without penalty.

           Our expectation will be for families to monitor their players’ health and not attend practices or games if they have any temperature, cough, or other signs of illness.  Thank you!

The organizer of large homeschool basketball tournaments will rule HRK INELLIGIBLE if we have players on our teams who are not homeschooled. This is their definition of homeschooling:

“Homeschooling” is defined to mean that a student’s education is parent-directed and done at home.

As such, the parents shall be directly involved in their child’s education, playing role of the headmaster thereby (1) selecting curriculum, (2) selecting and/or approving course materials and study schedules, & (3) selecting tutors, coop’s, teachers, dual enrollment options, &/or resources for their child’s education. HomeSchooling would also include a person of legal responsibility* of the student filling the role of a parent (*must be pre-approved by the NCHC)

In September 2020 the EAB Rules Proposal Committee voted over 80% in favor of keeping the NCHC Online At Home policy posted below. As such this entire section has been updated.

NCHC Online At Home – The #1 eligibility question we had in the Summer of 2018 & 19 was “what is the NCHBC stance was with “Online at Home” (Connections Academy, K12, Epic, etc.) The response we have had to this each time has been the same:

“The NCHC does not have an approved or unapproved curriculum.”

 

The bottom line is the NCHBC leaves curriculum choice to the parent’s discretion, provided it is done at home and the parents have the ability to change curriculum at their discretion.

 

2020 Clarification: The Online at Home rule excludes students enrolled in their local school district, who are doing school online due to COVID-19, this was clarified by an 85% vote by the EAB Rules Committee in September.

If a player does not meet all the requirements below they may fill out a Hardships Exemption Form to request an exemption.
