The Victoria Hotspurs Youth Academy is around developing the individual player whether that is on the pitch or off the pitch. Our aim is to create a positive, challenging and enjoyable learning environment that provides the player with the freedom to express and develop their natural ability. It is our intention to be in a position that 70% of our first team squads will be made up of Academy graduates.
