Eagles Girls Soccer
The James River Eagles plans to have both Middle School and Varsity Interscholastic girls soccer teams this spring for homeschooled girls ages 11 through 18 (as of August 1st of the same school year). The Eagles compete against other schools and organizations in our area, the VHSAA State Tournament, and in the NACA tournament in Tennessee in early May. We may also have opportunities for Junior Varsity games.
Players do not need prior soccer experience but it is helpful. Practices are structured to help players develop skills, knowledge, speed and agility, and team play. Players who are younger than 14 will be evaluated by the coach at the first few practices to determine if they can also play on the Varsity team.
The girls soccer season runs from early March through most of May. Official practices begin around the end of February depending on weather. Practices and game times are generally from 3:30 to 5:00 on weekdays. Registration prices for the 2020/2021 school year will be $160 for middle school only and $180.00 for varsity players. Eagles practice shirts are available to new or returning players who need a new one for $10.
Our 10% sibling discount will be applied for multiple participants within one family and payments can be made in installments. We have offered pre-season and off-season training and skill development opportunities. These will be communicated through registered players and offered based on availability and current Covid guidelines. Additional cost for out of area tournaments may be required.

Eagles Boys & Girls Cross Country Teams
Anticipation is building as we prepare for our 5th season of cross country! Last season, every runner in our program improved greatly under the tutelage and direction of Coach Jeffrey Greene. Coach Greene starred in cross country and track at Clover Hill High School, and later became an ALL AMERICAN runner at Winthrop University!
Most of our meets are large invitational meets and are run on Saturday mornings The great thing about cross country is that there is no limit to how many can be on a team and every runner participates fully in every race! The Cross Country season "runs" from September through October. Practices begin in August and online registration is open!.
Registration prices for the 2020 season are $100.00 for each participant. Our 10% sibling discount will be applied for multiple participants within one family and installment payments are available.
