About Our Club


What Makes Us Unique 

Villarreal Nebraska Academy aims to change the game of soccer through a relentless focus on player development.  We believe that we can "develop and transform the game by developing and transforming players".

Our club is modeled after professional soccer academies in Europe and South America, where the best players in the world are routinely produced.  Those academies understand that methodical skill development produces the best results for its players, and eventually produce the best results on the scoreboard too. 

Many youth sports organizations focus on winning above all else.  We believe in success above all else.  For some players, this means simply succeeding by attempting a new move in a game situation.  For others, it may mean success in pushing themselves to master a new skill at home.  For others, success will be defined by a well-executed series of team play against top-level competition. Don't misunderstand, we also love to win. We have won and will continue to do so, but for Villarreal Nebraska players and parents, we understand that true success in our club, and soccer in general, is defined by the continual growth in skills and character of our members.  Villarreal Nebraska's first priority is to equip players with the tools necessary to be successful at all levels of the game while having fun along the way.

Using the exclusive training curriculum mastered by our Director of Coaching, Jorge Sambataro provides high-level soccer development for youth of all ages in a unique academy environment designed to maximize the growth of every player.

OUR CURRICULUM

The curriculum of Villarreal Nebraska Academy focuses on four areas of simultaneous development:  Technical, Tactical, Physical, and Psychological.  Similar to an academic school, we focus on the mastery of foundational concepts before we introduce new concepts, these foundational concepts begin in our Mini-Submarines, then advance to the Groguet-TEAM before tryouts in our Select, Premier, and Ultra level programs. Just as it would be detrimental to a student to start teaching geometry before basic arithmetic is mastered, we will not focus on passing until basic ball control skills are mastered. Don't delay skilled training for your player, thinking you can jump in when they are older.  

This is uncommon in youth soccer - most clubs focus their efforts on getting easy wins by kicking the ball far and letting faster players outrun others to score.  This works well until players get older and the speed and strength differences between players gets much smaller.  On the contrary, Villarreal Nebraska Academy stresses ball control, vision, taking chances, and controlled movement - skills that produce a more well-rounded player over time.
