Player Identification and Development

Virginia Beach City FC Summer Academy is club neutral and competes during the months of June, July and August. Our program is designed to compliment local youth clubs by providing players additional development and identification opportunities in a professional environment over the summer months.  Our objective is for players to reach their highest potentials on and off the field.  Players will be exposed to and involved with our professional NPSL and WPSL players and staff.  They will see first hand what it takes to reach the next levels of the game.  Our training will maximize development in an appropriate environment tailored to the level of the players.  While every player will receive a professional training environment, high level players needing more will receive unique opportunities to play with and against other NPSL and WPSL youth academies. Goalkeepers will receive specific training in their positions and will get a lot of match replication to improve their abilities in game play environments.

With our new partnership with DC United and the Washington Spirit, the summer experience will be better than ever. Our 12U and older boy's teams will have friendlies against DC United's Academy teams and will go watch a DC United game at their new stadium during this trip! The girls will be doing the same thing with the Washington Spirit, they have friendlies scheduled and will be watching a Spirit game as well. It will be an unforgettable experience for all those involved in our summer teams! 

Our objective is to develop players to their full potential and consistently place them into high level clubs, ODP, state, regional, youth national programs , top collegiate programs, the Virginia Beach City FC First Team and ultimately with either Major League Soccer, MLS (Men) or the National Women’s Soccer League, NWSL (Women) organizations. VB CITY FC has had two players selected in the MLS draft since inception, including Sidney Rivera (Orlando City FC) and Michael Nelson (Seattle Sounders FC).  Other players have also been signed to professional clubs in the USL, NASL, and MASL.

Professional Staff

Lead by Virginia Beach City FC Men's Head Coach, Brian Hinkey, the VB City FC Academy staff consists of professional quality players and coaches who have knowledge of the game at the professional, collegiate, and youth levels.  Our staff has player, coach, and/ or work experience with many local and nationally recognized soccer organizations.
