Villarreal Force Youth Academy


Welcome to the Villarreal Force 
Youth Academy

What is the Youth Academy?

The Villarreal Force Youth Academy is a program within Fayetteville Soccer Club that is sanctioned by North Carolina Youth Soccer Association and it is ideal for the young player who is taking particular interest in the sport of soccer and appears to be ready for a higher level of training as well as increased expectations. This program is for players who fall into the 7U, 8U, 9U or 10U age. To find out your child’s age group click here for the age chart.




Players interested in the Academy Program must participate in an Academy Player Assessment.  This is not a "tryout" process resulting in a player being cut.  Rather, it is an opportunity for players, parents, and coaches to assess the suitability of the program to the player's stage of development and to determine if Academy placement is suitable. Typically, the assessments are in May of each year, however we do offer supplemental assessments when in season.


Assessment fee: Online $30

Registration: Full season $250  

Club Fee: $800 (Monthly payments plans are available) **Our 7/8U Teams Total Cost for the full year is $500; plus $30 for uniforms.**

Players and their families are responsible for their own uniforms, travel costs and Lodging if necessary. Uniform information is given to you once you’re placed on a team. 

Commitment level:

Commitment for the Villarreal Force Academy program is a mutual one-year commitment. Assessments for the Youth Academy are evaluated by our coaching staff.


The teams practice Twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday, for 75 minutes at the Jordan Soccer Complex.


We split the 9U and 10U Youth Academy into teams for training/games based on age and development.  Depending on the development of the players, we have the unique ability to move players up to challenge them on more competitive teams.

- In Youth Academy, we have "Festivals" where the 9U and 10U teams have at least 2 matches at each "Festival"; Youth Academy Teams play on Saturdays only for these "Festivals", with 8-12 matches a season.  Home "Festivals" are played at the Jordan Soccer Complex, and Away games are typically played no more than an hour to two hours drive away at various locations such as Sampson county, Wilson, Clayton etc.

- The 7/8U age group will have matches in our In-House Recreational League on Saturday.  This will give the 7/8U age group at least 7-8 Home matches for each season.  With them being in the Youth Academy, when VFA hosts a home "festival" event, these teams will get the opportunity to play against other clubs at the 7/8U age group.


The Youth Academy program is a one-year commitment (Fall and Spring):

Fall Season: August – November           &         Spring Season: January – April

Practice Location:

Jordan Soccer Complex: 445 Treetop Drive, Fayetteville, NC 28311


As we strive for personal growth out of our players, our paid coaching staff has an extremely unique opportunity for their own coaching development.  Our staff works directly with our affiliate club, Villarreal C.F. in Spain, to create age appropriate and challenging training sessions.  They have coaching meetings with Villarreal C.F. International Academy Directors as an individual and group, at least once a month.
