Being A Part Of Villarreal Las Vegas Academy
In 2020, Villarreal Las Vegas Academy (VLVA) became the only official La Liga Academy in the state of Nevada. VLVA offers a 10 Month (August-May) and 5 Month (January-May) Academy Program available from ages 5 to 18.
After tryouts, selected players will be placed into teams based on their age and skill set. These academy teams will compete locally, statewide, nationally, and internationally.
Our academy teams train 2-4 times each week with their specific VLVA teams. Our players and coaches at Villarreal Las Vegas will train under the innovative Villarreal CF methodology to help them develop into to their full potential. Villarreal CF works with Villarreal Las Vegas staff members to help players grow through our individual player development approach.
Villarreal Las Vegas Academy teams will compete on the weekends in tournaments and leagues that match each teams' competition level. Although winning at the highest level is important, winning does not mean everything to our club. VLVA focuses on the individual development of highly-skilled, well-rounded soccer players with a proven curriculum based on Villarreal C.F. and other international training methods.
Our academy is designed to produce players that can consistently compete with top teams in the state, region and nation. Players that exhibit an exceptional commitment and skill level may be invited by the Director of Coaching to travel to Villarreal Spain to train at Villarreal C.F. Academy.

Professional / Collegiate Scouting
Here at Villarreal Las Vegas Academy, we are committed to sending our boys and girls to the next level of their careers.
Through our professional scouting network, our players are evaluated week in and week out by our very own Villarreal CF academy in Spain. Our Spanish coaches use our practice footage, game footage, and coaching recommendations to help locate potential prospects. Furthermore,
If the professional route does not work as planned for our players, then college is the next best step. Not only will our players be able to continue their careers, but they also will be able to study at the college of their dreams. Each year, our staff creates scouting profiles with all of our players to send out to college coaches around the country. We also attend college showcases and tournaments with college scouts to further improve our players chances at receiving an offer.
