ABOUT THESA BASKETBALL
THESA Riders boys basketball offers competitive basketball for middle and high school aged boys (age 10 and above).
The season runs from November to early March.
We compete against area homeschool teams, private schools, and some public schools throughout the DFW area.  One of our program goals is to schedule a sufficient number of games in a season to prepare us for the homeschool tournaments at the end of our season.
We participate in several homeschool tournaments where some are at locations that require overnight stays (State tourney is 3 nights in Round Rock, TX / Nationals is 6 nights in Springfield, MO).
