Athletics can provide physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual growth and it is our desire that Lighthouse athletics will facilitate growth in each of these areas through our knowledgeable coaches, commissioners, and volunteers.

Coaches
  • Kristy Puryear has been a coach for many years.  She coached for the Jaguars, the school team as well as their club team. Her daughter played on her teams and is now off to college, but Kristy doesn’t want to stop coaching, so she is now coaching for us and we are so excited to have her returning to us!

Golf

 

2025 Season

We are looking to partner with First Tee to have practice sessions in the fall.  Match play will be in the spring. 

 

Golf offers homeschool students a unique chance to compete and connect with others. These young golfers often practice at local courses or with community programs, working on their swings, putting, and overall technique. At golf tournaments, they enjoy the challenge of the sport and the friendly competition, which helps them gain experience and confidence.

Basketball

 

2024-2025 Season

MS and HS team info coming soon

 

Homeschool students have a fantastic opportunity to join in and compete in basketball. These athletes practice with their team, focusing on skills like dribbling, shooting, and defense. During games, they experience the thrill of teamwork and competition, making friends and learning new strategies.

Track & Field

 

2024 Season

More info coming soon

 

Track and field competitions are an exciting time for homeschool students to participate and compete alongside their peers. These athletes train by themselves and also with the team to prepare for various events, such as sprints, distance running, hurdles, jumps, and throws. At meets, they enjoy the camaraderie and friendly competition, gaining valuable experience and developing their skills.
