Homeschool Support Groups
While LHN is primarily an online network where folks can ask questions, find out about activities, arrange events and meet-ups, etc., many area homeschool support groups provide “real life” support and help, and often offer play dates, co-op classes, scheduled activities and events, and the like. Here’s a listing of local homeschool support groups and their contact information: www.lubbockhomeschoolnews.com/local-support-groups-listing
You can find information on Lubbock-area homeschool sports on the LHCAA (the local homeschool sports association) website: www.lhcaa.com. Sports offered include swimming, basketball, baseball, football, softball, volleyball, soccer, etc. Homeschool tennis and family tennis camps are offered separately through Daniel Lassiter, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Homeschool Lending Library
You can also look through and borrow various curriculum at the Homeschool Lending Library. Basic info about the library is available on the LHN website (www.lubbockhomeschoolnews.com/lubbock-homeschool-lending-library) and you can browse the library catalog and check out books at the library’s website www.lubbockhomeschoolnews.com/lubbock-homeschool-lending-library. (The library is a separate entity from LHN, and we list their info as a resource and convenience.)
