Club Membership Requirements

1. Agree with our Statement of Faith.  This is a Club 19:14 requirement, not an NCFCA requirement.  Although NCFCA is a Christian homeschool organization, one does not necessarily have to be a believer to compete.  However, since we consider the training of our club a form of Christian discipleship, we want to make the club membership distinctly Christian.  Consequently, all families are required to sign an agreement to our Statement of Faith.

2. Agree with our Code of Conduct.  We also ask that all students AND parents sign and comply with our Code of Conduct.

3. Affiliate with the NCFCA.  You must be an affiliate with the NCFCA to compete in tournaments.  Please check the NCFCA Participation and Eligibility guidlelines  and Affiliation Information pages for more information. 

Registration

Registration for the next competition year opens during the month of May for new families.  Limited space is available.  To inquire about registration, please Click Here to contact our Club Administrator.

  1. current members in good standing (i.e. have fulfilled all Club requirements and have joined by April 30th of the preceding competition year).
