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 Soccer
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 VHSAA State Tournament here in the Richmond area as well as a trip to Dayton, TN to compete in the NACA tournament. Our Middle School team will continue to compete locally against homeschool organizations, other schools, and in the State Tournament.
Official practices begin in early August. Practices and games are typically on weekdays. Summer practices will be in the evening and then practice times change to 3:30-5pm toward late August.
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.
Registration prices for the 2020-21 season will be $170.00 for Varsity players and $150.00 for players playing Middle School only. The registration fee also includes an Eagles practice t-shirt. Jerseys are provided and are to be returned at the end of the season. Our 10% sibling discount will be applied for multiple participants within one family and installment payments are available.
