We are a parent-run organization. If you are an individual interested in organizing or coaching an individual or team sport, please contact us. 

Who do you compete against?
We compete against private schools, public schools, and other homeschoolers. Our teams compete locally in various leagues.  Tennis is under the umbrella of the United States Tennis Association (USTA), in which our teams compete against public, charter, and private schools.  Most of our middle school teams compete in the Albuquerque Parochial Independent Athletic League (APIAL). Our other sports teams compete in the Albuquerque Charter School League (ACSL), which mainly hosts local charter and home schools.  Some of our teams also compete regionally and nationally.

Who are your coaches?
Our coaches are all volunteers.  Most often, our coaches are parents of athletes, or alumni of AHSA.  All coaches are required to sign our Statement of Faith and pass a background check.  If you are interested in coaching, please let us know!  Contact us at [email protected].

What is required from me, the parent?
We are a volunteer, parent-run organization.  Our existence is dependent on parent helpers.  Some parent jobs may include taking entrance fees, keeping a score book, running a game clock, timing races, measuring throwing distances, bringing snacks, etc.
Also, we ask that parents and athletes always be respectful toward referees, coaches, and other athletes and spectators.  Express appreciation often to the coaches who are willing to voluntarily invest their time and talents into the life of your kids!  See the Parent Code of Conduct.

How are my registration fees used?
Sports fees cover the cost of league participation fees, gym/field/facility rentals, referee fees, uniforms, equipment, background checks and training for coaches, end-of-season athlete gifts, insurance, etc. Our sports fees currently run between $60 and $230, but can change depending on our expenses. We are a volunteer, not-for-profit organization and as such we charge what it costs to organize and run the teams.  The registration fees do not cover travel costs for out of town tournaments.

Are there additional costs I should expect throughout the season?
-  Gym sports will have an entrance fee for all spectators attending games. 
-  Regular season registration fees do not include travel costs or tournament entry fees for out of town tournaments.  These tournaments are optional, but will require additional fees. 
-  Many times, teams will collect an optional monetary amount from participating families to present to the coach as a gift of appreciation at the end of the season.

What if I register but then find my child can't participate due to a scheduling conflict or other issue?
If you need to withdraw from a sport for any reason before games or meets start, you can get a partial refund of your fees, minus the initial $10 registration fee.  Refunds are not granted if you need to withdraw after the season starts.
