CTFC Academy - Mission Statement & Vision

"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:

  1. Achieve the highest possible scores for a Category 3 Academy.
  2. 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.
  3. Recruit, develop and sign players through our pre-Academy (U8).
  4. Sell one play every three seasons to other professional clubs.
  5. Have a minimum two players from the Academy within the first team squad every season.
  6. Evolve the coaching philosophy over the next three years into a more player-centred approach. 
  7. Develop and educate scholars to allow them to pursue footballing careers domestic or abroad, go to university or find alternative employment.
