Established in 1996 and located in Weatherford, Texas, Weatherford Express is a Christian-based, not-for-profit organization that provides home schooled students the opportunity to participate in team sports. We currently offer Volleyball and Basketball. Teams are known as “Weatherford Express” and each team enjoys a variety of competitive levels with local home school groups, private, and public school programs. Our colors are scarlet, black, and white. The "EXPRESS" name embodies the power and speed of the Express trains of old crossing vast plains and conquering purple mountains to get passengers, goods, news, and the Good News of Jesus Christ from one part of the country to the other.
WHO WE ARE
Our organization is made up of volunteers; board members, coaches, admissions managers, book and stats keepers, concession stand managers, videographers, photographers, and many others. The Board is responsible for establishing policies and procedures for the programs and directing the course of the organization as a whole. More information about the Board and governance may be found in our Policies and Procedures (PDF Forms page).
