The Academy is under the direction of Coach Derek Marinatos, head coach of the University of North Florida (UNF) Men’s Soccer Program. The UNF Men’s Soccer Program is establishing itself as one of the top Division 1 programs in Florida and also garnering national recognition with its first Division I era top 25 ranking (22) in 2016. The Ospreys have been dominating the A-SUN Conference with back-to-back undefeated conference seasons and Atlantic Sun Regular Season Championships. The Ospreys reached the NCAA tournament in 2015 and produced its first MLS draft pick in Alex Morrell (22 pick overall). It is the fourth consecutive year the program has had a winning record and has reached the A-SUN Conference finals in three of the last four years.

The Derek Marinatos Soccer Academy (DMSA) will service the demand for professionally run Soccer Camps in Northeast Florida and will foster an invaluable learning experience for each camper under the instruction and coaching of college, U.S. National Staff, ODP, club and high school coaches, and current players.
