  1. Gwen,
    Thank you for your helpful suggestions and websites and commmunity resources. I am encouraged as a new to highschool homeschool mom.
    Do you know of any basketball leagues for highschool students? My son is a junior this year.
    Thanks,
    Dawn

    1. Hi Dawn, I do not know of any basketball programs specifically for homeschoolers, but the Philadelphia Parks and Recreation offers basketball at numerous rec centers throughout the city. Also, the Police Athletic League (PAL) offers basketball programs at many sites. 🙂
