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 2021 after team formation, you can use the same account to register for a 2021/22 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 2021/22 season, the age groups are:

 Birth Year:  2017  2016  2015  2014  2013  2012  2011
 Age Group:  U5  U6  U7  U8  U9  U10  U11


Birth Year: 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004  2003
Age Group: U12 U13 U14 U15 U16 U17 U18  U19

Players should attend their birth year team formation group. Players may express interest in playing up 1-year on their "Tryout" registration for coaches/staff consideration. 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 2012 OR LATER - JOIN Villarreal Nebraska Academy CLUB NOW:  Players born in 2012 or later 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 2012 or Later):
Registration is open April 1, Registration due by July 2nd!

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 April 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.  Note, that each player can choose which tryout session(s) to attend, and attendance at all of the sessions is highly recommended but not required.  The more our coaches get to know and see players the better they are able to place players in the most appropriate placement. 

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 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.  Therefore, it is our goal to have a team spot for all youth.  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, 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 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]

Date and Time TBA for Uniform fitting, Uniform ordering, Turn in Forms, Final Help with Registration.

Any Questions Please email or call 402-853-7100

Team Formation Philosophy
VNA believes in player development and our goal is to form a variety of level teams for ALL players who want to learn the game of soccer. We expect to have teams at various Program levels for ALL players U14 and below who re-register and ALL new U14 and below players who participate in team formation events in July. Players U15 and above must meet the team needs as critical development skills must fit into the teams.

If non-member parents/guardians contact VNA we can return your calls/emails to answer general questions.
