BASKETBALL

The OKC Knights are Oklahoma City's oldest homeschool athletic organization. Our basketball program was founded in 1990 and in 1991 Oklahoma’s first homeschool basketball team was birthed.

 

What’s unique about the Knights

There are many good options between the homeschool teams in the OKC area – we know, we compete with them every year. At the same time, there are some unique attributes of the OKC KNIGHTS.

Our motto is OKC KNIGHTS: MORE THAN BASKETBALL. This means that we not only offer more sports than basketball, but that we are more than just an athletic organization. When you join the OKC KNIGHTS you join a tight knit community and become part of the Knights family.

 

Other Attributes of the OKC Knights:

  • We are competitive and play to win.

  • We work harder than we think we can.

  • We strive to serve others.

  • We strive to leave people and placers better than we found them.

  • We are governed by a board of directors to provide accountability for our coaches, players, and athletic director.

  • We strive to glorify God on and off the court.

 

Join us and see what you can accomplish with the OKC KNIGHTS!

Eligibility 
We welcome homeschool athletes to our teams. We also welcome players who are transferring from other homeschool programs or from public schools, but to uphold the integrity of homeschool athletics we do have some eligibility requirements. For our part, we respect the other homeschool programs in OKC and will never recruit athletes away from other homeschool teams or recruit/persuade public school athletes to homeschool for the sole purpose of playing for our teams.

 

Eligibility requirements:

  • Players must be homeschooled at least 51% of the time.

  • Make a season long commitment to the teams, coaches and player.

  • Parents must be willing to volunteer during the games and in other events where needed.

  • Players must not have left another team or school for disciplinary reasons in the past 12 months.

  • Player and parents must be willing to abide by our code of conduct.

  • Players must live at home with his/her parent, legal guardian of board approved legally responsible person.

Transfer Student Eligibility:

Homeschool transfers:

There is no sitting period for transfers from homeschool programs who have been homeschooled for two consecutive years. Homeschool transfers who have only homeschooled for one year are subject to board approval.
 

Public School transfers:

Incoming Freshman and Sophomores are eligible immediately if they transfer before their first game.

Incoming Juniors – not eligible to play until November 23.

Incoming Seniors – not eligible to play until January 1

Players may still practice with their teams until they are able to play.

 

Upperclassmen must transfer before the first game of their previous team. In season upperclassmen transfers are NOT eligible to play for the Knights.

 

Transfer classifications are based on the student’s grade at the school or team they are transferring from. ie: If the student was a junior at their previous school, they are considered an incoming senior. If they “reclassify,” they are still treated as an incoming senior in terms of our eligibility rules.
