Field House

A Home for All Seasons

The SOCA Field House is located in the Belvedere community just north of Charlottesville with access from Rio Road.  The facility features an enclosed 60 x 40 yard playing field on state of the art synthetic turf. Protected from the elements, the turf field will be available in all four seasons and may remain open during rain or snow. Dividing nets drop from the ceiling to divide the playing surface into separate training spaces or official regulation sized futsal courts.  The facility also features a large meeting and tactical room, player fitness training space, locker rooms and a physical rehabilitation and treatment room.  The facility hosts coach and referee training, player and team training, as well as other club initiatives.

The Field House will host programming during all seasons of the year.  Skyline Elite team training will occur year round and will include tactical instruction, film study, physical fitness training, injury treatment and rehabilitation, as well as traditional on-field team training.  This unique facility will further delineate Skyline Elite training as the pre-eminent opportunity for players in the region.

SOCA Field House COVID Protocols
  • Winter Indoor Soccer League

    The SOCA Field House’s futsal courts are ideal for hosting and playing indoor matches.  Fields are lined to official Futsal dimensions and feature top quality goals and field equipment.  The youth indoor league season is the winter (January to early March).

    All Skyline Elite Team members are enrolled in the league as a part of their annual fees.  While this season provides an important break from the weekly grind of regular season training and play, it is important that elite level players continue to stay on the ball and developing over this period.

    Teams are formed to help players do just that and hopefully enjoy themselves while doing it.  Futsal play is fast paced and technically demanding.  It lends itself to not only speeding up the necessary foot agility it also forces players to increase their speed of thought.  Players that can excel in this environment are often able to translate many of these same lessons to the outdoor game as well.

  • Winter Academy and Clinic Training

    The Field House is also home to many of SOCA’s locally preeminent camp and clinic offerings.  The indoor facility provides the perfect setting for this small group topical instruction.  Hone your soccer skills through the game with professional trainers and coaches.  Limited training group size to encourage tactical understanding through the use of proper technique.  The fundamentals of the game are applied within game settings.  These offerings occur in the winter and summer seasons.  Registration for these programs is separate from annual fees and is for those looking for further instruction and are focused on developing individual players.
