Mr. Boutin has been a board member of AHSA as well as a varsity coach for 4 years. He brings his experiences as an athlete, coach, & Homeschool leader; along with a passionate desire to build the national network of the NHFCS.
After 5 years of building the NHFCS from the ground up, Mr. Van Risseghem is turning his focus to assisting the new director, while serving with an expanded board of trusted advisers who will provide oversight and accountability for the organization's policies and programs.
The NHFCS enters a phase where homeschool athletic organizations are seeing a greater benefit to having a football oversight institution with national prominence. As statewide public & private school leagues see the a accountability and established norms being implemented, more opportunity and inclusion is beginning to happen in several states.
A goal of the NHFCS is to have every statewide prep sports league allow it's member teams to have the freedom to schedule official varsity competition with homeschool teams who follow the same fundamental eligibility standards.
