Joining Villarreal Nebraska Academy is simple, but there are a few things you'll need to know.

1.  CREATE AN ACCOUNT ON THE Villarreal Nebraska Academy WEBSITE:  Anyone wishing to register for a Villarreal Nebraska Academy team program, class, camp or event must first register for an account on this website and add your participants to your account.  Simply click the Register button at the top right of the page and create an account.  

* Please note that this does not make you a Villarreal Nebraska Academy player/member.  It does allow the public to register for camps, clinics, tryouts, etc.  If you are admitted to the academy in June/July 2022 after team formation, you can use the same account to register for a 2022/23 program.

2.  DETERMINE YOUR PLAYER'S AGE GROUP:  The second thing to know is your player's age group, which is based on his/her birth year.  For the 2022/23 season, the age groups are:

 Birth Year:  2018  2017  2016  2015  2014  2013  2012
 Age Group:  U5  U6  U7  U8  U9  U10  U11


Birth Year: 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005  2004
Age Group: U12 U13 U14 U15 U16 U17 U18  U19

Players should attend their birth year team formation group. Players may be invited by our coaching staff to attend an older session during the team formation process. Players who show ability to "play-up" may be invited to play their age group AND additionally, up an age group.

3A.  PLAYERS BORN IN 2017-2013 may JOIN Villarreal Nebraska Academy NOW:  Players born in 2017-2013 are allowed by Nebraska State Soccer Association to join Villarreal Nebraska Academy and register for any of our programs at any time during the year. Players in this age range who are interested in joining our club can do so now by logging into the Villarreal Nebraska Academy website, clicking the My Account button at the top right of the page, and then selecting the applicable program of their choosing.

Formal team formation events are not required for these younger age groups.  

Yellow-TEAM or Groguet-TEAM: U10 & Under Players (Players Born in 2017-2013):
Registration is open May 1, Registration due by July 9.

3B. SELECT, ELITE Teams: PLAYERS BORN IN 2011 OR EARLIER - REGISTER FOR TEAM FORMATIONS NOW:  Players born in 2011 or earlier are only allowed to register with Villarreal Nebraska Academy during specific "Team Formation" dates that are regulated by Nebraska State Soccer Association (NSSA).  Team formation events are often referred to as tryouts or evaluations, and they will end with clubs extending offers to players to join. Once an offer is accepted, that player will be a member of his/her chosen club for the ENTIRE 2021/22 season: From Signing Day in June/July 2021 until July 31, 2022

Signing up for a team formation session is available May 1: To participate in Villarreal Nebraska Academy's team formations, sign up by logging into the Villarreal Nebraska Academy website, clicking the My Account button at the top right of the page, and then signing up for a tryout/evaluation/team formation session.  
The cost of tryouts is $15, which provides 1-3 tryout sessions. The more our coaches get to know and see players the better they are able to place players in the most appropriate placement. Attending all sessions is highly encouraged.

Players participating in tryout/evaluation sessions will take part in activities designed to showcase individual skills, comfort with the ball, and ability to respond to instructions.  It is not unusual for players to feel nervous when trying out for a new club; however, Villarreal Nebraska Academy understands learning experiences and teachable moments. Prospective players should feel welcome to try their best and have fun along the way. No Fear and Playing with Joy are main principles of our club philosophy, and we understand all players have varying places to start but all players have desire, potential and come to learn.

It is our player development focus and our true Academy beliefs that all players have the opportunity to learn the game correctly. Our goal is to form multiple teams in each age group for like-minded, like-skilled players to have teams for all players within one of our program levels.

Current VNA players do have the option for re-registration on June 6 or June 27, to sign with VNA prior to the team formation events but you must still register for team formations. 

What's After Team Formation Events?
Official offers will be emailed or provided in writing and final registration is required approximately 1-3 days after it is sent. If you need more time to make a decision, please let us know, so we can hold your position, if needed. Everyone will receive an email with your team formation status. If you do not receive an email, please check your junk or span folders, then contact Amy: [email protected] or Nicki: [email protected]
