James River Eagles Girls Soccer
The James River Eagles just finished their Middle School and Varsity Interscholastic girls soccer season for homeschooled girls ages 11 through 18 (as of August 1st of the same school year). The Eagles competed against other schools and organizations in our area, the VHSAA State Tournament, and in the NACA tournament in Tennessee in early May.
Registration for next spring will be open in January 2022. 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 2021/2022 school year will be $150 for middle school only and $200.00 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.

Boys Varsity and Middle School soccer will be offered again this fall. We have a full and challenging schedule in place for the upcoming season. Included in this season’s plans will be competing in the Virginia HomeSchool Athletic Association (VHSAA) State Tournament here in the Richmond area as well as a trip to Dayton, TN to compete in the National Association of Christian Athletics (NACA) tournament. Our Middle School team will continue to compete locally against homeschool organizations, other private schools, and in the VHSAA State Tournament.

Players do not need prior soccer experience, but it is helpful. There are no "tryouts". We strive to help further each player’s development as a player and an athlete representing Christ each season. Players who are 14 and under will be evaluated by the coach at the first few practices to determine if they can also play on the Varsity team.
