Meet the Team

As they say, it takes a village. This is our current active coach roster. Although there are even more certified coaches here at James River taking a hiatus for school or work that still may be an extra set of eyes in your class.

About JRCF

Get it done quickly and safely is the ultimate goal. We have taken what works in the most efficient manner to make better athletes and eliminated what doesn’t.
