Villarreal Nebraska Academy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit youth sports organization, founded in 2015, with a vision of transforming the style and quality of soccer in Nebraska and the region. Our mission is to develop our youth members into highly-skilled soccer players, while simultaneously teaching our players the importance of character, integrity, and service. 

Villarreal Nebraska Academy currently has 300+ registered boys and girls. Our programs cover the entire spectrum of soccer education: from pre-K novice programs to nationally-competitive high school age programs, and everything in between.  Over the years several of our players have successfully moved on to Major League Soccer professional academies and top-level college programs, which is a true testament to our training curriculum. 

A unique aspect of our club, and one that is central to our mission, is our player-centric academy approach. Unlike most clubs that have a coach-centric approach in which players join a team and stay with that team for years and years, Villarreal Nebraska Academy offers an alternative designed to optimize each player's development. In our approach, players regularly move between teams as their unique developmental needs dictate. In this way, the player is the primary driver of his/her position in the club and development occurs at a faster pace.

This player-centric structure also leads to players, parents, and supporters having a much stronger association with their entire club instead of simply a specific team. It is very common to see Villarreal Nebraska Academy players and parents watching each other's games because of the strong club bond that exists. To our sponsors, this means that sponsorship of the club exposes organizations to a much broader and more passionate membership than conventional team-based or coach-centric clubs.

In addition to exposure to our members and their thousands of distinct social media contacts, sponsors extend their reach deep into the community by virtue of Villarreal Nebraska Academy's commitment to community service. Our club regularly participates in community outreach programs, such as collecting shoes for the needy, participating in events that raise money for organizations like Special Olympics, and donating our time to help those in need, to name just a few.

Villarreal Nebraska Academy aims to make organized youth sports accessible to children of all income levels by keeping our program costs as low as possible. Additionally, we provide scholarships to children from low income families to help open our programs to them.  Our sponsors' generosity helps bring these goals to fruition.
In short, our sponsors help improve the quality of soccer in the state and region, they provide a positive impact on the community via our members' involvement, and they make soccer accessible to children of all ages and backgrounds. It’s an ideal way to invest in the children and future of our community!
