Georgia Force Basketball is an offshoot of the very successful Georgia Force homeschool football program based in Sugar Hill, GA. We are a 501(c)(3) Christian organization established to provide homeschool students an opportunity to play high school basketball.
Our primary goal is to develop our young men for the world beyond athletics. Winning is central to what we do, but it is secondary to bringing glory to God both on and off the court.

Students can spend a maximum of 60% of their time at a learning center. A minimum of 40% of their time must be spent studying at home or at a place designated by the parents. These students can receive their education through homeschool groups or cyber schools.
Participation is also open to full-time private school students whose schools do not offer any competitive sports programs.
We will play an independent schedule for the 2017/18 season and will have no league affiliation.
We do not promote or endorse any particular Christian denomination. However, we do abide on fundamental Christian beliefs and ask that all families desiring to participate respect those Christian beliefs. We do not discriminate against participants on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin.
Any student in grades 9-12 that completes a season as a Varsity participant and has shown good sportsmanship and attitude is eligible to receive a varsity letter. Varsity letters will be presented at the close of the season.
