Open gym is open to all current and former students, as well as any homeschool families that have played or are interested in playing with Byne. This is a great time to come and give it a try. No pressure- just come and see what it’s all about! Last year’s team included several SWGHA students as you can see, and lots of seniors so we need new players!

For the past 15 years I have served on the board of Southwest Georgia Homeschool Association. I have now transitioned to a new (well kind of) position-
SWGHA Athletic Director/Homeschool Athletics Liaison with Byne.
I have actually been serving in this capacity for the past few years but now have an official title. 😂
I am very familiar with the Byne athletics program having served closely alongside the previous AD and in many other capacities as well as having been the Assistant Girls Basketball Coach for the past 3 years. I am excited to continue in that role as well as take over head coaching responsibilities for the Girls JV Basketball program this coming year.
We are excited about the opportunities afforded homeschoolers through Byne and want to continue to grow this well built program.

I would be happy to answer any questions and I would encourage you to consider giving sports a try. Even if your kids aren’t athletic or have no experience. Everyone has to start somewhere and we will teach them, and you never really know until you actually try something. My kids had no experience or even interest in sports prior to giving it a try. And they absolutely fell in love with athletics. There is something about being a part of a team, working to accomplish goals, that sense of community, that is priceless.
And a majority of coaches on staff are homeschooling parents if that helps 😎

In addition to Byne’s program, SWGHA also has offered Cross Country, Track, Volleyball, Tennis, and Girl’s Soccer in the past few years. Just like the Byne programs, what is offered is dependent upon participation. We generally only field a team in a sport if Byne does not. (We aren’t trying to compete but rather utilize the partnership). For example we have had a Cross Country team for the past 3 years because Byne has not. (Stay tuned for info regarding SWGHA’s Cross Country team).

Your response is needed so that Byne can make an informed decision about what sports to offer next school year. They are extending the deadline to 6/30/21

The following are offered by the GCAA for next school year (2021-2022). Please note! These are not guaranteed- the teams we have will be dependent on the number of student athletes that sign up to participate. See below:

Fall 2021:
1. Middle School Girls Volleyball
(4th - 8th)
2. Junior Varsity Girls Volleyball
(6th - 10th)
3. Varsity Girls Volleyball (8th - 12th)
4. Varsity Cross Country (7th - 12th) (Boys and Girls)
5. Varsity Boys Soccer (7th - 12th)

Winter 2021-2022:
1. Middle School Basketball (4th - 8th) (Boys and Girls)
2. Junior Varsity Basketball (6th - 10th) (Boys and Girls)
3. Varsity Basketball (8th - 12th) (Boys and Girls)

Spring 2022:
1. Varsity Girls Softball (7th - 12th)
2. Varsity Girls Soccer (7th - 12th)
3. Varsity Boys Baseball (7th - 12th)
4. Varsity Golf (7th - 12th) (Boys and Girls)
5. Varsity Track and Field (7th - 12th) (Boys and Girls)

Parents - If your child/children are interested in any sport (even potentially) please respond ASAP at 229-376-9530 or [email protected]
with your child’s name and what sports your child is interested in from the list above so that Byne’s AD can put together a list and make an informed decision about the sports teams for next season, please respond ASAP. The plan is for decisions to be made THIS week.
Thanks, Cindy Cheek Bartley 😁
