NOAH is a homeschool organization with the specific objective of providing athletic and educational services to the homeschooling community. These services are provided to promote a positive Christian atmosphere for all who participate. Our desire is to maintain a high standard of character, competition, and safety for all our participants. NOAH welcomes ALL homeschooled students who wish to participate in our programs.
In 1998 the Oklahoma homeschool community was a dynamic and growing entity that consisted of numerous grassroots organizations dedicated to assisting families choosing to educate their children at home. One of the greatest needs was an organization that provided athletic programs to student-athletes. The Northeast Oklahoma Association of Homeschools (NOAH) was founded to realize this need and has become an umbrella organization for a plethora of sports. Contributions and gifts to NOAH are tax-deductible.
On March 8, 1998, 17 families assembled to form NOAH. NOAH is a 501(c)3 organization that was created to provide homeschool students with the opportunity to develop athletic abilities while building character in a distinctly Christian environment. NOAH’s desire is to maintain a high standard of character, competition, and safety for all participants. A board of nine directors conducts the business of governing and managing the organization.
In July of 1998 NOAH leased a “home” gym at Town and Country School located on 101st Street near Yale Ave. in south Tulsa. The athletic program began in October of 1998 with three varsity, two junior high, and four elementary basketball teams, and a cheerleading squad. In the spring of 1999 NOAH participated in its first National Homeschool Basketball Tournament. NOAH desires to perform at the highest level of competition and regularly competes against teams from public and private schools, as well as other homeschool organizations.
The expansion of NOAH athletic programs began with the addition of high school golf in 2000. Elementary flag football was added in the fall of 2001 and was followed by elementary baseball in 2003. The baseball program expanded to junior high in 2004 and varsity in 2005. Soccer began in 2004 with an elementary girls’ team and expanded to varsity girls and boys in 2005. One of the most exciting additions to the organization was tackle football. The junior high team began competition in 2004, followed by junior varsity in 2005, and the first ever eleven-man homeschool varsity football team in 2006. The varsity football team competed against a variety of opponents, including a class 6A public school. Softball, Tennis, Shooting Sports, Track & Field, and Volleyball were the most recent additions.
NOAH currently serves over 400 homeschool athletes and welcomes all homeschool students who wish to participate in its programs. (If you are interested in seeing a sport added or would like to help establish a new sport, contact us.)
Team colors are royal blue, white, and black.
Our mascot is the Jaguar.
NOAH is continuing to expand into both new sports as well as expanding current sports to broader groups of athletes.

NOAH sports are coached by volunteers with expertise in athletics, and a dedication to developing young people. We are continually looking for dedicated leaders and we value the efforts they make, to develop young people. Support personnel are also needed, as assistants, coordinators, treasurers, and other specialized positions.
While most coaches are also parents of our athletes, it is not a requirement. We do expect all of our coaches to uphold the Christian values our organization is known for. All coaching applications go through a background check, in an effort to provide a safe environment for our student athletes.
