The Waukesha County Christian Home Educators, a small home schooling support group, sought to establish a sports program to give home school students the opportunity to participate in athletics. In 1997, a basketball program began for boys and girls in the fifth through eighth grade. We entered the Lake Area Christian Conference in 1998 and were able to offer flag football and volleyball to our athletes. A high school boys basketball team was established in 1998. Seeing the need to encourage other area homeschoolers to join us, the name was changed to Southeast Wisconsin Christian Homeschool Athletics (SWCHA).
The Saints sports program began with 30 athletes and has grown to serve more than 100 athletes competing in soccer, flag football, volleyball, basketball, track and baseball. High School Golf was added in 2003 and in the fall of 2004, we added a High School Girls’ Volleyball Team. High School Tackle Football was added in the fall of 2006.
