The Knoxville Ambassadors girls basketball team wore homemade white T-shirts as jerseys when Rhonda Bradley saw them play the first time about five years ago.

The makeshift uniforms matched the attitude of the team and the other Knoxville Ambassadors basketball teams.

“They thought, ‘If we win great. If we lose, ‘Oh, well,’ ” said Bradley, who was watching a friend’s daughter play on the basketball team for homeschooled kids.

With the help of some new players and some dedicated parents as well as the better organization of homeschool athletics across the country, Bradley has seen the Knoxville Ambassadors transform since she decided to homeschool her own children about four years ago.

And the eight girls and boys homeschool basketball teams who play as Knoxville Ambassadors got new uniforms.

“They are really nice, comparable to public school teams,” Bradley said. “We try to look the part. They are durable.”

The new uniforms are just one testament to the tremendous increase in competitiveness and organization homeschool sports in East Tennessee.

Knoxville Ambassadors high school teams now play public schools — a rule change two years ago within the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association allowed its members to play homeschool teams — and they beat some of them.
