Christian Heritage Sports (CHS Sports) started in 1995 with a summer soccer camp, led by Jeff Paterson. The camp attracted over 25 home school kids from Christian Heritage School. Beginning in September of 1995 we began a physical education program of, one day a week athletics. Every two months we changed sports, including basketball, soccer, football, tennis, softball, and other recreational activities.
After two years of PE classes, we found other home school groups/schools that were competing in basketball. At that point CHS joined those schools and helped form the Southern California Christian Athletic League. In the early 2000’s as we were adding several sports to the league, God continued to direct the program, blessing it immensely. In 2003 with the help of an attorney friend we were able to create a 501c3 nonprofit organization, California Home School Sports (CHSS). One of the main purposes was to create an open door for local businesses and sponsors to support CHSS and allow those entities to receive a tax credit. By 2006, CHSS unanimously became the league for home school teams in Southern California.
Starting with the 2013–14 school year we had grown to having eight home school groups/schools that are members of The CHSS League in Southern California. We now have teams competing in basketball, volleyball, football, baseball, softball, and track & field.
In addition to the league of teams, California Home School Sports hosts three home school championship events that bring in home schoolers from many areas of the state of California and neighboring states. The events are The March Gladness Basketball Tournament, The Home School Volleyball Championships, and the Home School Track and Field Invitational.
