A Part of the Oklahoma Home Education Activities Association
The Oklahoma City Knights home school basketball program was founded in 1990. Our high school and middle school boys and girls teams play competitive schedules against public, private, and home-schooled teams. We offer opportunities for elementary players as well. The Knights strive to operate in accordance with the rules of the Oklahoma Christian Schools Athletic Association and the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Athletic Association. This gives the Knights greater credibility with opposing teams and has helped us earn a long-standing reputation of respectful sportsmanship and integrity.
The 2014/2015 season culminated with all teams participating in the Homeschool regionals here in Oklahoma City, followed by the NCHBC Nationals in Springfield, Missouri. All teams finished well in their respective divisions. We are looking forward to a very competitive season 2015/2016.
Over the past several years, colleges have signed 14 former Knights boys, and 5 former Lady Knights, ranging from NCAA Div I, II, and III, NAIA, and National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA). We continue to see collegiate interest in our athletes every year.

A dear member of our Knights family has left this earth to be with his heavenly Father.
Ed Foster passed away on Thursday, May 14th, 2015. He was a pioneer of the Knights program. He coached several teams and was the athletic director of the program for a number of years. Two of his children had outstanding careers with the Knights as well.
John (Ed's son) said: My father passed away unexpectedly last night. It was quick and we know he is at peace in Heaven. Thank you so much for the prayers.
