A message from Chip Boone, our Student Activities Director:

Welcome and thank you for your interest in James River Athletics.  We have many outstanding programs that are committed to excellence in academics and athletics.  We are a part of the Virginia High School League’s 6A South sectional and conference 3 as well as the Dominion District.

We recommend that you contact the coach for the sport you are interested in playing well before the “first practice date”.  The coach can inform you of any pre-season conditioning, clinics, or open gyms.  You can go to www.dominiondistrictva.org  to access all of James River’s athletic schedules.  You may also find information at www.jrhsrapids.net, our athletic booster’s website.

In order to participate in athletics for the 2014-2015 school year, student athletes will need a Virginia High School League physical form filled out by a physician and must be dated after May 1, 2015.  This form is required before any type of participation in pre-season conditioning or before participation in try-outs.  You may pick up a physical form in the James River High School main office or go to www.vhsl.org and print out a physical form.  All physicals must be on the VHSL form THAT WAS REVISED MARCH 2013.  You must also turn in a signed concussion form before you are allowed to participate in any athletic activities.  This form can be found at www.jrhsrapids.net or in the front office. Please also see http://www.jrhsrapids.net for Athletic Boosters information.
