Can homeschoolers participate in public school athletics?
The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA) permits a homeschooled student to participate in public school extracurricular athletics if that student’s parent has filed a notice of intent for that student and has otherwise complied with the requirements of Tennessee Code Annotated § 49-6-3050(b). Other eligibility requirements also apply. (See TSSAA Bylaws, art. II, § 25, page 19.) This does not apply to students who homeschool in association with a church-related school.
