This page will contain various sports activities available for homeschoolers in and around NJ. We will add and expand on it more and more as new information comes across our view.
Here is a bit of advice: if you’d like a particular class, but don’t see one, check your local place! They will often be happy to put together a homeschooling class during the day and will work with you if you ask. Sure, some will not go for it, but you will never know unless you ask!
