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 first week of March or possibly the end of February depending on weather. Practices and games times are generally from 3:30 to 5:00 on weekdays. Registration prices for the 2019/2020 school year will be $160 for middle school only and $180.00 for varsity players, which includes an Eagles practice t-shirt. Our 10% sibling discount will be applied for multiple participants within one family and payments can be made in installments. We also offer pre-season and off-season training and skill development opportunities. Additional cost for out of area tournaments may be required.

Included in this season’s plans will be competing in the VHSAA State Tournament here in the Richmond area and traveling to Dayton, TN to compete in the NACA tournament. Our Middle School team will continue to compete locally against homeschool organizations, other schools, and potentially in the State Tournament.

Looking forward to our 4th season of cross country, and coming off back to back league championships, the James River Eagles are excited to welcome Coach Jeffrey Greene as the head coach this season! Coach Green starred in cross country and track at Clover Hill High School, and later became an ALL AMERICAN runner at Winthrop University! We're really looking forward to continuing the tradition of excellent leadership and coaching in our cross country program!
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 opens July 1st.
Registration prices for the 2019 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.
