"To provide the best opportunities for players to play football and develop into the best Cheltenham Town player they can be in a safe and enjoyable environment..."
The Academy vision is to:
- Achieve the highest possible scores for a Category 3 Academy.
- Produce technically excellent and innovative players, with exceptional decision making skills as well as physically fit personnel for the first team or to sell on to other clubs.
- Recruit, develop and sign players through our pre-Academy (U8).
- Sell one play every three seasons to other professional clubs.
- Have a minimum two players from the Academy within the first team squad every season.
- Evolve the coaching philosophy over the next three years into a more player-centred approach.
- Develop and educate scholars to allow them to pursue footballing careers domestic or abroad, go to university or find alternative employment.
