WHAT IS FCHAA?

FCHAA is the Faulkner County Homeschool Athletics Association.  FCHAA offers competitive sports teams for homeschoolers in Faulkner County.  These teams compete against other homeschool teams, non-AAA private schools, and AAA public and private schools.  Due to the nature of competition, some players get more playing time than others.  However, all coaches will do their best to give as much playing time as possible to each player.

Uniforms and travel costs vary based on the sport and the age group. (FYI…FCHAA coaches are volunteers and do not receive compensation for their efforts)

There is also a $25 insurance fee for all sports to cover the player’s enrollment in supplemental athletic insurance.  A player’s enrollment in the supplemental insurance is required in order to play.

WHY SUPPLEMENTAL ATHLETIC INSURANCE?

All players are required to be enrolled in the supplemental insurance chosen by FCHAA.  This supplemental insurance will provide coverage for injuries that occur while the player is participating in an FCHAA sporting event or during a practice scheduled by the player’s coach.  This insurance will act as a supplemental policy to the player’s primary insurance and will offer 100% coverage up to $25,000.  If the player is not covered by insurance, this police will become their primary coverage while participating in the above described activities with 100% coverage up to $25,000.
