The Victory Athletic Center’s mission is to provide high quality, budget friendly experiences for youth and adult sport programming in a safe and professional environment, year-round.

The VAC, as we fondly call it, is the premier outdoor sports facility of its kind in Orange County and home to Victory Box Lacrosse and San Juan Capistrano Arena Soccer League. The complex includes the latest in artificial sports surfaces, as well as many amenities to accommodate any kind of group.


The fully lit venue houses two (2) lined athletic fields consisting of:

♦ A synthetic turf field surrounded by dasher boards and sports glass, team benches, separate penalty boxes, measuring 200’ x 85’ (equivalent to a standard-sized NHL rink).

♦ A fully equipped dedicated performance training area designed for individual and team sport specific development.


The VAC has become the “go to” place for the community and local athletes to play and train for baseball, field hockey, football, lacrosse, rugby, soccer, softball, and other team-centric sports and activities, all while enjoying themselves in safety and comfort.

Let us host your team, a unique sports party or an event of your choosing. We welcome all facility requests!

The Victory Athletic Center has been selected two years in a row for the 2020 Best of San Juan Capistrano Awards for Gym and now qualifies for the San Juan Capistrano Business Hall of Fame.
