1.1 King’s Homeschool Football Team Schedule – Multiple Locations – September 28 Through October 26

Home games: Manassas Baptist Church (football field is behind the church)
8730 Sudley Road
Manassas, VA

Admission is free; concessions will be sold. Come support your homeschool football team and cheer on the team whether you are a homeschooler, private school student, parent, or someone who just likes high school football!

The Kings football team is a Christian, competitive, non-profit, varsity level (high school) football team comprised of high school athletes from all over Northern Virginia. Most of the athletes are homeschooled or attend a school that does not have a football program. The Kings were established in 2006 to meet the needs of athletes who didn’t have the opportunity to play on a public high school football team. The Kings are a sanctioned member of the Mid-Atlantic Christian Conference, which includes five other similar teams from Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia. All of the club’s coaches and staff are volunteers, and all equipment, referees, fields, and training, are paid for by the team members. If you are a homeschooler or private school student without a football team, then the Kings is your football team!

Come out and support the team by cheering for them at any game!

Become a colonist for a day!

Some activities depend on the weather, but participants may work a colonial printing press; find out about open hearth cooking; try on 17th-century clothing; and see how the first Marylanders made fields from forests.

1.3 Article – “Homeschooling: The Forgotten Subjects”

Since homeschoolers get to choose their subjects, we have an opportunity to make sure some endangered subjects are not forgotten. Are you keeping alive chivalry, feminine virtue, spiritual preparedness for life (here and in eternity), and deference to adults and the elderly?
