DescriptionServicing age groups from the 2 year-old to the senior citizen, the Virginia Beach Field House has become one of the most comprehensive multisports facilities on the east coast providing a multitude of sports for high quality instruction, leagues, camps, clinics and tournaments. On a regular basis, VBFH attracts participants and spectators from a 60-mile to 6 minute radius. Centrally located, VBFH is convenient to people from nearby, neighboring states (Maryland and North Carolina). A premier facility, VBFH has become the central hub for regional tournaments, team training, and excellent programming. We offer a plethora of sports options for both youth and adults. On the ground floor we operate four indoor synthetic turf fields (85’ x 180’), eight regulation volleyball courts, and four regulation basketball courts, as well as a full food court with concessions. Upstairs there is two small turf areas for combines and training. There are also party rooms, vendor leasing and several inflatables.
Our party rooms enable us to host a wide variety of special events. Events such as birthday and team parties take place at VBFH on a weekly basis. However, because of the size of our facility we can also accommodate larger events such as mixed martial arts, dog shows, trade shows and corporate events. We offer leagues in soccer, basketball, volleyball, flag football, inline hockey, lacrosse, and field hockey during five seasons throughout the year. Each of the seasons lasts approximately 8 weeks. In addition to our own leagues and programs we also open our facility up to vendor tournaments, camps and clinics.
VBFH is grounded in three core concepts. These concepts are captured in the Eastern Sports Management mission statement and are the foundation on which we operate the organization:
1. To provide the most complete guest service experience in Virginia Beach and in the sports facility industry. We refer to people as our guests, because VBFH is our home, and we only invite guests into our home.
2. We operate, facilitate and supervise sports leagues and tournaments. This is our area of expertise. Our leagues are well organized, scheduled properly, have all necessary personnel and equipment, and allow our guests to enjoy the games, concerning themselves only with having fun.
3. We increase sales for our sponsors. We view our sponsors as employers and treat their business as if it were our own. Being responsible for our sponsor’s business leads to exciting and creative ways to sell more products for them.
We are happy to work with students and their colleges or universities on an individual basis. We do not require a set intern schedule but will be flexible to accommodate any individual requirements. Housing is available for interns that are out of the area.
