About

The Northwest Sports Club is the original homeschool basketball organization in the Indianapolis area, founded in 1989 by Jack Baumgardner. The 2013-2014 season was their 25th year of lacing up and hitting the hardwood.  The Northwest Warrior club is organized to provide home-educated children at least 10 years of age (as of September 1 of the current season) an opportunity to enjoy competitive basketball while developing Christian character, basketball skills, and physical fitness.

The Northwest Warriors currently call Traders Point Christian Church their primary home, with home games at Traders Point Christian Academy. The Traders Point facilities are located at 6590 S. Indianapolis Rd, Whitestown, IN 46075.  Practices are held at the nearby Whitestown Municipal Complex.  The Warriors offer five age levels for competitive basketball: 18 & under (Varsity), 16 & under (JV), 14 & under (Junior High), 12 & under, and 10 & under.

Age levels are all based on player age as of September 1st of the current season. Northwest is intended for home-educated children, and player eligibility coincides with the NCHBC National Tournament guidelines, which indicate that parents must be the primary facilitators of the player’s education including but not limited to classes at home, co-op environments, and other parent-arranged educational opportunities.

For additional information on the Northwest Warriors, please contact one of our coaches or the President of the Board.  The registration form at the bottom of our contact page includes the club’s formal purpose, statement of faith, core values, and participant guidelines.

The Warriors play in the NCHBC National Tournament and are a member of the Indiana Christian Basketball Alliance, the NHBA and the Midwest Christian Homeschool Conference:
