All the teams are registered with the Cheltenham Youth Football league, and their fixtures are available to view via the CYFL Fulltime Page.

Football in this age group is based on progressing the core skills learned in the Academy and learning to work as a team across a full season of league games, celebrating the wins and learning to deal with and learn from the losses and having FUN.
