The Highlanders Academy has started INDOORS at the U-Vic CARSA building. Over the past 2 Sundays young players aged 8 to 11 years of age have trained under the guidance of Vikes players, Robyn Spilsbury, Elise Butler and Katie Rufh, all with the guidance of Highlanders GM, Marvin Diercks.

The kids are having a fun, DRY, WARM, learning experience and the parents have been comfortable as well.

The Highlanders look forward to adding more interested players and registration is pro-rated if parents choose to register their sons or daughters. It is very simple, just go to the Victoria Highlanders FC website and click on the academy button.

The content of the Academy is based on the developmental program shared with the Highlanders through Sheffield Wednesday FC, who play in the Championship Division of the English Football League.
