Marlin Soccer Camps

Our Focus

Marlin Soccer Academy is committed to fostering the "love of the game" while developing technical, tactical and physical skills that will enable players to respond to the challenges of soccer in a confident and creative manner.

Camp Directors Jeff Bowers and Chris Mills are assisted by nationally licensed coaches and Virginia Wesleyan players selected primarily for their ability to relate with and teach youth players. Emphasis is on individual training as well as teamwork. Each camper receives a written evaluation at the end of the camp. Day Camps are available to players ages 6 to 15 at all skill levels and offer a positive overall experience in a fun yet challenging atmosphere. Players will be grouped by age and ability. Goalkeepers receive specialized instruction each day.

Virginia Wesleyan University is located on a beautiful 300-acre wooded campus. The soccer facilities consist of a Bermuda game field and four practice fields, all exceptionally well maintained. Within 20 minutes are the famous Virginia Beach resort areas and beaches. Open to our campers is the state-of-the-art Batten Student Center which includes:  

  • Elevated Indoor Track
  • Basketball Courts
  • Racquetball Courts
  • Fitness Center
  • Indoor Soccer


New!: all Marlin Soccer Academy campers will receive a FREE CAMP SOCCER BALL (excluding Soccer Shots programs)!

If it rains or inclement weather occurs we will head inside to the Batten student center to wait out the weather related conditions.

Our Hampton Roads soccer camps serve boys and girls from all over Virginia. We are happy to offer one of the finest Virginia soccer camp experiences available to the young player today! We hope to see you on the pitch very soon!
