OVERVIEW

The Villarreal Nebraska Academy Elite Program focuses on the individual development of well-rounded soccer players with a proven curriculum based on national and international training methods.  Elite players will be registered with Nebraska State Soccer Association and will participate in local or regional leagues and tournaments.  The Elite players may be dually registered with USYSA and US Club Soccer.  The Elite program is designed for players that want to compete in the state and regionally.

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

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 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 for tryouts even if you can not attend to be placed on a team.


COACHING

Coaching is provided by Villarreal Nebraska Academy coaches who have studied and understand the coaching curriculum, staff coaches, former players, college players, trained parents. These coaches have demonstrated their delivery of the curriculum and all have taken classes for coach licensing. Training is directed and overseen by DOC Jorge Sambataro and supported by a club program director or age-group coordinator. 


PLAYER MOVEMENT

In order to respond to differing development rates as the year progresses, Elite players have the opportunity to move between training groups and teams to optimize each player’s growth. If a player is moved to up to a higher level program the cost difference will be added to the player account.

COMMITMENT LEVEL

Elite 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 Elite player is expected to provide a minimum of four (4) 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-Submarines, Groguet-TEAM, or Select programs; tracking player points during other Villarreal Nebraska Academy games; assisting with club events; or other community activities as approved by the Managing Director.


NON-CLUB SOCCER ACTIVITIES

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.  Select Plus players are discouraged from participating in non-club soccer events in which Villarreal Nebraska Academy coaches are not involved, as different coaching approaches can delay or counter the developmental process that the club provides.  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.
