I have children who home school as well and my kids were able to take not only P.E., and sports at the local school but also band. You can also check into the YMCA if there is one in your area, they have a ton of sports activities as well as camps during the summer. Also there is your local Boy Scouts. Hope these suggestions help you out.
Hi Vicky, I'm a scout leader with my local group. I find this is one great way of introducing kids to making new friends and learning lots of different activities. It's also good if kids arent all that sporty also. And they arent, no matter how much you push them. If not scouts, there are other great groups, such as naval cadets, even church groups, These groups all incorporate sporting/game like activities in their weekly meetings. There are camps where they get to do things with their peers, learning trust and team work. Hope this helps a little.

We have many home schooled boys in my son's boy scout troop - we have a really active troop and do a lot of activities, hiking, cycling, sports and stuff... the boys have a blast with it. Check out your local parks and rec dept, around here they offer cheap to severely discounted PE & sports type programs for home schooled kids. :)

In our area our school lets (even encourages) the home schoolers to come in for gym class and to be involved in afterschool sports. Not knowing the age of the child or the area you are in, I don't know more than that but you might look into it. Also, there are tons of upwards basketball things out in our area now and that might be available in your area also.
