Villarreal CF coaches heading to Lincoln

Villarreal Nebraska Academy will be hosting tryouts and camps in June 

Villarreal Nebraska Academy (VNA) is set for a busy month of June. The academy in Lincoln, which has teams for boys and girls of all abilities and age ranges, from U11s through to U19s, will host tryouts throughout the month, as well as hosting two camps.

The tryouts and talent ID sessions will run from June 10th to 15th for U11s to U13s. For U14s to U19s, they will be on June 25th to 29th. All tryouts will take place at the outdoor soccer fields on 345 Speedway Circle, Lincoln, Nebraska.

The camps will take place at Densmore Park Soccer Fields, 6701 S. 14th Street, Lincoln, Nebraska. The first camp, from June 17th to 20th, will be exclusively for VNA players, while the second one, from June 21st to 22nd, will be an open Villarreal CF camp for any budding young player who wants to be involved in this great opportunity.

There will be coaches from Villarreal CF, the top Spanish club that works alongside VNA, on site for the camps and the second set of tryouts. Villarreal staff members will help run the sessions and continue their work with VNA staff members to grow players through an individual player development approach.

One of the coaches from Villarreal heading to Lincoln will be Lucy Goffe. She cannot wait to see the talent in Lincoln: “I’m really excited to be heading to Villarreal Nebraska to see the quality on show, both at the camps and at the tryouts. We have a great relationship with directors Jorge Sambataro and Amy Scott and we believe our involvement so far with VNA has seen players’ games reach the next level. I hope to see a lot of people jumping on board the Yellow Submarine in Lincoln.”

Sporting Director, Jorge Sambataro, explained how the partnership has been beneficial for VNA: “There’s been an abrupt change since we signed with Villarreal. A few coaches, including some from different D1 universities, have asked me about what we’re doing different with the kids now as they seem to have joy when they play, they’re audacious, they take on players, they make mistakes. And that’s because we’ve taken away fear, and that’s happened because of the encouragement we’ve got from Spain.”

One player who impresses at each camp will be given the opportunity to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Spain. Those chosen player will spend a week training at Villarreal’s world-class soccer academy, taking part in the Player Training Week program, an exclusive experience designed by Villarreal, which offers them the opportunity to spend a week playing and training with Villarreal teams in their professional facilities.

During their week in Spain, chosen players will train intensively with youth teams, study their game with personalized video analysis sessions, as well as a behind-the-scenes tour of Villarreal’s stadium, the 23,500 capacity, all-seated Estadio de la Cerámica.

They will also visit both training complexes, the main Villarreal CF Training Ground, which has nine fields and covers 70,000m2, as well as the Pamesa Cerámica Training Ground, which has four fields and covers 40,000m2.

The week will make them feel like they are living the life of a professional footballer.
