Welcome to the South Charlotte Thunder Athletic Organization.  The organization was formed in April of 2016 in order to give North Carolina home educators in the Charlotte area an opportunity to participate in competitive middle and high school level sports.  The South Charlotte Thunder is a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status​ and a member of the ​North Carolinians for Home Education Athletic Commission - West Region (NCHEAC).  NCHEAC facilitates a well-organized conference and state playoff system.  Currently, the South Charlotte Thunder offers boys middle school, junior varsity, and varsity basketball programs. However, as the interest level increases, we hope to add other programs and sports as well.

The South Charlotte Thunder was formed by three men (Jewel Abbott, Anthony Hailey, and Clay Broussard) who served as the founding Board of Directors for the 2016-17 season.  In March of 2017, the Thunder welcomed Greg Johnson to the board.  In March 2019, the Thunder welcomed Daniel Kern and Justin Bouldin to the board. The board’s primary function is to set the direction and oversee all activities of the organization.  The following mission statement was developed by the board:

The mission of the South Charlotte Thunder Athletic Organization is to promote and provide healthy and competitive athletic programs for home educators in the Charlotte area.  Our aim is to be God-centered, believing that Jesus is Savior and Lord.  All activities will focus on the growth and development of student athletes in a Christian and encouraging manner.
