The Alabama High School Athletic Association has agreed to develop bylaws that would allow home school students to participate in public high school sports by the 2016-17 school year, an Alabama lawmaker says.



Legislation, dubbed the Tim Tebow Act, that would allow home school students to participate had gained momentum this legislative session and would have likely this passed this session if lawmakers didn't put on the brakes.

Bill sponsor Rep. Mike Ball, R-Madison, said passing a bill wasn't the objective; it was about not shutting out home school students.

"I would rather (AHSAA) do it," he said. "When I found out they were going to do it, there is no reason to issue a statute."

The High School Athletic Association sent a letter to Sen. Dick Brewbaker dated June 2 stating its commitment.

Brewbaker serves as the chairman of the Senate Education and Youth Affairs Committee, which held a public hearing on the bill on May 20.

Most committee members told the association during that meeting that they needed to get on board with home school students playing public high school sports.

At the time, AHSAA Executive Director Steven Savarese's main complaint was students not enrolled in public schools won't count towards the school's classification (1A-7A).

The letter from Savarese states: "Per our conversation Wednesday, May 24, 2015, the AHSAA Central Board of Control commits to developing a home school bylaw allowing home schooled students the opportunity to participate in interscholastic athletics within AHSAA member schools for the 2016-17 school year."

As long as AHSAA follows through, Ball said he is happy.

"This is a win-win for everyone," he said.

The bill is named after the Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow from the University of Florida who was homeschooled and played at Nease High School, near Jacksonville, Fla.
