The Home School Building: A Blessing

As home schoolers, we are truly blessed to live in one of the best places in the world to educate our children as we see fit. One huge factor in that assessment is our access to the Home School Building. Through the years, the HSB has hosted tutoring classes, soccer practices, volleyball games marching band, orchestras and, of course, basketball games and practices. It is difficult to imagine how different the MHSSA basketball league would be without the HSB for meetings, practices and games.

Of course, our use of the HSB comes with some strings.

First, we do pay for the use of the basketball courts. That means that our rented usage period begins thirty minutes before tip-off of a game. If you happen to arrive earlier than that, please wait outside of the building.

Also, we are responsible for set up and take down. After games are complete for the day, bleachers go against the west wall, chairs need to be stacked on carts and moved to the storage room attached to the northwest wall and time clocks and possession arrows need to be put back into the audio/visual room.

Additionally, we are responsible for cleaning up after ourselves. The home team must sweep floor, pick up trash, take trash bags to dumpster (note trash vs cardboard dumpster), put new trash bags into trash containers in the gym and the bathrooms.

Finally, we should always make sure that guests are not roaming halls unsupervised.

If you notice anything that is in need of repair or attention from the building staff, please contact HSB office the next business day at (616)532-9422 or email them at office@homeschoolbuilding.org.


The 2018 edition of the Michigan home school two day basketball marathon is now complete! The games included overtime games, one double overtime game and several last second game-deciding shots. It was another shining example of the basketball skills, exemplary sportsmanship and Christian character that has become a staple of the tournament. Updated brackets with the results for all tournament games are posted on the tournament web page. Visit the state tournament page using the tab above.
