The Villarreal Nebraska Academy Select Program focuses on the individual development of well-rounded soccer players with a proven curriculum based on national and international training methods.  Select players will be registered with Nebraska State Soccer Association or USSSA and will participate in local leagues and tournaments.  In some cases, Select  players will be dually registered with USYSA and USSSA.  The Select program is designed to produce players that can consistently compete with top teams in the state. The main focus of the Select Program is individual player development to compete at the highest level locally and regionally, enjoyment, and playing with friends.

Players are invited to join the program during tryouts in June each year. Limited openings may exist  during the year if a player is looking to join mid-year. 


Tryouts will follow the requirements and timeline set forth by Nebraska State Soccer Association.  Refer to the Registration and Tryout Information page for tryout dates, times, and locations. 

Note that, per NSSA requirements, tryouts are not required for admission into U10 and younger programs, and players can register for those programs beginning each June.  Both registered and interested players are encouraged to participate in the tryout/evaluation sessions to help the club place each player into the appropriate initial training group. You Must register even if you can not attend in order to be placed on a team.


Coaching is provided by Villarreal Nebraska Academy coaches who have studied and understand the coaching curriculum, Staff Coaches, Former Players, College Players, Trained Parents.  Training is directed by DOC Jorge Sambataro and a club program director or age-group coordinator. 


In order to respond to differing development rates as the year progresses, Select players could have the opportunity to move between training groups and/or teams to optimize each player’s growth. Player movement to a higher level program will cost the difference between the programs at the time of movement.


The following information is as accurate as possible.  However, slight changes to tournaments, training days/times, and other modifications may be necessary as the season progresses.

  • League Fall and Spring(s): Spirit, ENSA, Nebraska League, Alliance League or Equiv.
  • Tournaments per Fall/Spring Season:2 Tournaments or 1 Tournament and A Second League
  • Training Frequency: 2 times per week Fall and Spring, 1 time per week Winter

Select players are encouraged to participate in other athletic, academic, and extracurricular activities.  To the extent possible, players are expected to coordinate their activities in order to attend all scheduled soccer training, games, and tournaments.  When conflicts are unavoidable, players must provide Villarreal Nebraska Academy with advanced notice of absences.  Numerous training absences may adversely affect playing time during games.

Community Service:  Each Select player is expected to provide a minimum of two (2) hours of mentorship and/or community service per season.  This service is an important component of the program as it teaches the players to give back to the club and community.  Acceptable hours include volunteering to assist in training sessions for Mini-Gellans, Gellan-TEAM; tracking player points during other Magellan Soccer games; assisting with club events; or other community activities as approved by the Managing Director.


The curriculum and developmental process that Villarreal Nebraska Academy utilizes is uniquely structured to provide a systematic progression of soccer skills over time.  As a result, the optimum development takes place within the structure of Villarreal Nebraska Academy training and competitions.   If players choose to participate in non-club soccer events anyway, they must first notify Villarreal Nebraska Academy of their intent and obtain permission from the DOC.
