SUPPORT OUR ATHLETES
Help us build the Bulldog legacy!
The TCBAA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) Christian organization dedicated to providing homeschooled youth with competitive athletic opportunities that help build Christ-like character. We are a parent-run, Board-governed volunteer organization. Board members, Athletic Directors, Coaches, and Parents donate countless hours of their time to invest in the lives of these young people.
Our History & Growth
Home school athletic teams have been part of the Grand Traverse community for 20 years and the TCBAA was founded to provide team sports as an option for home schooled children throughout the Grand Traverse Region. The TCBAA has been blessed with outstanding growth and team sport participation over the past several years and our current athletic needs far exceed the number of local athletic facilities for rental, especially gymnasium space. In 2016, our athletic program expanded again as we added girls’ varsity volleyball to our association. Including the new girls varsity volleyball team, the TCBAA now has more than one-hundred-ten athletes involved in girls & boys soccer and girls & boys basketball—elementary age through varsity.
As recent as 2010, the TCBAA Board and members realized gym space to rent within the Grand Traverse area was becoming scarce and available full-sized soccer fields weren’t available, yet our growth continued. Feeling that God was leading our organization to acquire land and/or facilities to build a Bulldog Athletic Complex, in 2011 the TCBAA began an annual day of prayer and fasting to seek God’s wisdom in how He would direct us through this very significant need.
In 2013 a gentleman stepped forward and donated a building plus 20 acres of property to the Bulldog Association. This represented a gift value in excess of five-hundred thousand dollars; however, after extensive research the building was going to need major renovations in order to convert to a full time athletic facility. The building and land was put up for sale in 2018 and has since sold, allowing our association to move forward with a new build. Property has been purchased and plans to move forward with our new facility have started to take shape.
NEW FACILITIES COMING SOON!
HOW CAN I HELP?
The estimate for the entire project is $430,700
We are asking you to consider a generous, fully tax deductible, cash or stock donation to the TCBAA to help us with the costs of renovating this facility and installing soccer fields.
