    Fall Sports

    2017 National Champions

    Fall THESA sports are preparing for their seasons.  Cheer, Volleyball, and Football are preparing for their first practices of the season.  Cross Country, Boys Basketball, and Girls Basketball are preparing for tryouts and registration.  See the respective team pages for season updates.

    Boys High School & Junior High Basketball

    2018-2019 basketball season tryouts are coming in September at the Bedford Boys Ranch.  Tryouts are open to players 11 - 18 years old.   We have high school (Junior Varsity, Varsity) and junior high (7th, 8th grade) teams.  See the Basketball home page for additional tryout information.

    Girls High School & Junior High Basketball

    2018-2019 season

    In our 2017-2018 season, we had two teams: a middle school team (age 12 & under) and a junior varsity team (age 16 & under).
    Starting in the month of September we will start tryouts, form our teams, and prepare for the 2018-2019 season which runs from November to early March. I expect us to have a middle school team (8th grade,or 14U) and a junior varsity team (16U). I am currently scheduling several Varsity games for the JV team for next season.
    We play teams that are home schooled, TAPPS, and UIL (if they will schedule with us). We try to schedule a sufficient number of games (20-30) in a season to prepare us for the home school tournaments at the end of our season.
    We play teams throughout the DFW area.
    Our costs are lower than other home school girls’ teams because our practice gym is currently provided at no cost. Past costs per player has ranged from $300-$450, depending on the need for uniforms and the number of tournaments in which we participate.
    Two of our tournaments are at locations that require overnight stays (Regional in Round Rock, TX / National in Springfield, MO).

    The girls’ basketball calendar events are posted on this THESA Riders website (
