Fellowship of Christian Athletes

High School athletes come together in a time of fellowship, worship and fun.  Meet and fellowship with THESA athletes from all our sports.


Fall Sports

Fall THESA sports begin preparation for their season in the late spring and over the summer for most teams.  Season play begins in August or September and continues until the end of November.  Basketball has fall tryouts and runs to spring break.



The 2016 TAIAO State Champion THESA Riders are holding tryouts for the 2017 season on Friday, May 12th and Saturday, May 13th.  Tryouts do not require previous experience.  Athletes will need a current sport physical, a deposit of half the sport fee and workout gear (no pads or helmets).


Girl's Volleyball

Volleyball tryouts  are this Tuesday, May 2 from 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. for junior high and high school teams.  Tryouts are held at Tejas Volleyball Club in North Richland Hills.  There is a $15 fee per athlete for tryouts.



2017 Cheer Team Tryouts were the week of April 17 - 21 for High School Girls 9th - 12th Grade.  If you missed tryouts email the athletes name, grade, and any previous cheer experience to or call Coach Pam McKeever at 817-999-2137.  Have a conversation with Coach McKeever about your option to tryout for the team.
