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 2-3 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 to their full potential. Villarreal CF will work with Villarreal Las Vegas staff members to help players grow through an individual player development approach. All practices are filmed and uploaded for our players to watch and analyze.
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.

Thanks to Villarreal CF’s jersey sponsorship deal, Spanish apparel company Joma will provide all of our clubs with our iconic yellow kits, our blue secondary kits, and training gear. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be reducing our uniform prices for all of our teams. On average, our club uniforms cost 50% less than all of our Las Vegas competitors. We feel that we should be able to look good without breaking the bank. All uniform purchases will be handled through our soccer.com website.
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 will be evaluated week in and week out by our very own Villarreal CF academy in Spain. Our Spanish coaches will use our practice footage, game footage, and coaching recommendations to help locate potential prospects. Furthermore, our club has ties with several other La Liga clubs that are very interested in scouting our players.
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, we will create scouting profiles with all of our players to send out to college coaches around the country. We will also be attending college showcases and tournaments with college scouts to further improve our players chances at receiving an offer.
