Cap City has already fielded teams at the middle school, junior varsity, and varsity levels for the 2020-2021 season. As Lifetime Members of the Homeschool Sports Network, Cap City submits to the age eligibility guidelines set forth by HSPN in order to qualify for national homeschool tournaments. Players tryout for the teams that accurately reflect their grade, age, and skill level. At the discretion of the coaching staff, a player may be invited to play at the next level in extenuating circumstances. Should there be confusion about which of our teams would best fit your athlete, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
Because our players come from nine counties as well as the City of Richmond, practices and games are held all over the Richmond Metro area with travel incorporated for our older teams. Our aim is to keep our practices as close to the Richmond Metro Area as possible for the convenience of our families but appreciate your understanding when that isn't possible.
Coach Jim is entering his first year as a middle school boys basketball coach at Cap City. His coaching philosophy is built around developing the fundamentals, motivating to bring out the highest possible individual effort, and requiring a team approach from all of his players. His energy fills the gym, as he pulls from his 15 years of experience in our nation’s military reinforcing his philosophy of getting his team to match effort with motivation.
Coach Jim played varsity basketball for Midlothian High School and served two years on the staff of the Fort Bragg Men’s US All-Army basketball rec team. He has found that sports brings people closer and develops esprit de corps through competition. He has been married to his wife, Stephanie for 14 years, and has three amazing boys.
Hebrews 12:1 Says, “Let us run with endurance the race is set before us!” Endurance is required to maintain good health and stay positive in all of life’s events. Coach Jim is steadfast in his resolve in trusting God’s strength through prayer to endure the course of the tasks set before us.
Kevin Brungard, Head Coach for Varsity Boys and JV Boys
Coach Kevin Brungard has had the blessing of having basketball evolve from a sport he enjoyed playing in high school into a sport that he is passionate about coaching. Coach Brungard has had incredible experience and exposure to excellent coaches and mentors from the time he was an assistant coach at a dominant public school program in northern Virginia in the late 90s to coaching his kids' rec and interscholastic homeschool teams throughout the years. His high-pressure defensive style has enabled his teams to win multiple trophies and awards, but he calculates true success as discipling young athletes to be world-changers for the Kingdom. When he's not coaching basketball, Coach Brungard is watching cooking shows, riding rollercoasters (if he makes the height allowance), and chilling with his family. Coach Brungard has been married to his wife, Nikki, for 25 years and has three pretty fantastic kids.
Lee Day, Assitant Coach for JV Boys
Coach Lee’s life verse is found in 1 Samuel 2:30 where God declares, “…for those who honor Me I will honor…” Lee has a desire to honor God in all things through life, ministry and sports. Coach Lee and his wife Erica have been married for 16 years and have two sons. Together they have pastored Christ Family Outreach Church located in Amelia VA for 12 years. Coach Lee loves competition and has coached both middle and high school baseball for many years.
Coach Lee loves finding what a player is good at and then focusing on making him even better. He enjoys seeing his teams working hard together, creating a brotherhood that will last beyond the court. His ultimate goal is to see his team win on the court together and grow into a men of God while doing it.
Jeremy Dill, Assistant Coach for Middle School Boys
Jeremy Dill has been married to Shannon for 16 years and together they have three great kids in Ava, Caden, and Conner. Jeremy played baseball in his younger years, transitioned to volleyball in high school, and then played softball as an adult. These three sports helped to learn the concept of team and the importance of working together.
His first coaching experience was with his oldest son's basketball team which he considers to have had more of an impact on him than the kids. "The best feeling was seeing every kid on the team score at least once in a game and to see the reaction of the last kid to score as well as his teammates made the season a success! From that point, I wanted to help out as much as I could when my boys are involved in any sport."
Jeremy's favorite passage of Scripture is Psalm 91. At Cap City, his enthusiasm for kids as well as for the Lord are both contagious.
Hunter Sjogren, Assistant Coach for JV Boys
Coach Sjogren developed a love for the game watching his older brother hit his first shot at a young age. His family always strived for excellence in sports on and off the court. Through a competitive Christian homeschool sports program, he worked hard and enjoyed much success with his teams. Although he has enjoyed the competitive side of sports, Hunter has appreciated the life lessons in leadership, faith, and personal development that came from his involvement playing basketball.
Through his years of experience in leading different teams, businesses, and working at churches, he will combine his knowledge base with the other coaches to create the most effective program designed to create young men of God who work hard on and off the court. Coach Sjogren values and rewards integrity, hard work ethic, honesty, perseverance, and self-discipline all while making basketball challenging yet fun. Coach Sjogren and his wife, Ashley, married at the beginning of basketball season and are living as blissful newlyweds.
Doug Tomlin, Assistant Coach for Varsity Boys
Assistant Coach Doug Tomlin is a proud husband for 24 years to Kim and father to Jacob, Carson and LilyKate. As an Assistant Coach, Doug lets Coach Brungard handle the “X” and “O” specifics but is ecstatic to translate his love of supporting the development of young men and sports into this role. Growing up, Assistant Coach Tomlin enjoyed the competition that playing sports like basketball, tennis, soccer, swimming, and football offered. That competition helped him learn the valuable traits of perseverance, stretching oneself, and winning and losing well. However, along with those lessons, sports offered the even more important opportunity to develop relationships and leadership skills. The teams Coach Tomlin participated on were comprised of coaches and teammates from all different walks of life. This variety allowed him to learn valuable lessons on how to adapt, embrace and succeed even when circumstances and situations were unfamiliar to what he was used to. Knowing how important these lessons have benefited him in his personal and professional career causes a desire to transfer those to these young men. As important as these two are, being able to share and demonstrate my relationship and faith in Christ is paramount. As an organization, Cap City’s focus on the spiritual growth and well being of its players makes this program unique and he is proud to play a part in achieving its goals.
