Players with exceptional Character, Competence, and Soccer IQ have the opportunity to participate in the Villarreal Player Development Program. VIVA players have been selected to spend a week on-site at the VCF training ground in Spain to train with and learn from the VCF experts.
VIVA recognizes that soccer is more than X’s and O’s, goals scored, and shots saved. It is a teacher of life. We are as committed to the development of the person as we are to the development of the player.
Considered to be one of the best youth academies in the world, Villarreal CF (VCF) Academy is a top contributor to the Spanish national squad at all its youth levels. As an official partner of Villarreal CF, Villarreal Virginia (VIVA) is committed to implementing VCF’s unique methodology with our players and accelerate player development in the process. This unique philosophy is implemented alongside VCF Spanish coaches who are onsite to oversee the process.
