Basketball Open Gyms-Novi


Who/what are the HEA Firebirds?

The Home Educators Association (HEA) is a group of volunteers.

Their mission is to provide a physically beneficial and spiritually healthy sports environment to Western Wayne and Southern Oakland County youth. This should enhance our purpose to provide an opportunity to develop Christ like character, team unity and athletic skills as they focus on consistency, determination, dependability and enthusiasm.

They believe that God has created within all of us the desire to play and learn. These desires are good and should be fulfilled in a God-honoring way.
