About the Club

The Eagles FC was created in Spring 2013 by Chris Goff, the father of a football-mad ASL kindergartener, to provide fun and high-quality football instruction for him and his friends. For whatever reason, a group of K1 students had become fixated on playing football at lunch recess, and they played at every opportunity. All of the boys participated in various developmental football programs for Under-7 children, but none of them felt that the level of instruction was adequate for the needs of this group. They also struggled with programs that fit the British school schedule, and wanted something with the convenience and quality of the ASL after school program (iPOP). Chris felt the kids would benefit from more directed instruction and league play. Thus the idea for the club was born.

Practices began in Spring 2013, with 21 K2 boys and girls. We now have teams from 1st grade through 5th grade. The Eagles FC compete in the Camden and Regent's Park U7-9 Leagues, with matches taking place every other weekend. We also play friendly matches with other teams, and enter cup competitions when appropriate.

In 2014, the Club founded the Eagles Girls' Academy for Lower School girls (1-5th grades). We paused the Girls' Academy in the 2017-18 season. We will bring you more information about it in the future. 

Chris's strong founding leadership was succeeded by Maris Jurevics, who ran the programme for two years. Maris and his family moved back to the US in the summer of 2017, and he was replaced by Juliana Wheeler and Daniel Stenson as co-chairs that year.  Juliana continues to hold the post of Chair of Eagles FC in the 2019-20 school year. While she works full time in the City as Head of Marketing and Communications for a British investment bank, she is passionate about Eagles FC and is grateful for the opportunity to continue to lead this exciting programme.

Eagles FC is a parent volunteer-run programme, and we are always looking for new parents who are eager to get involved. Please send us a note if you'd like to discuss how you can help support the programme to  londoneaglesfc@gmail.com.
