Victory offers selection day opportunity


Melbourne Victory Football Club is offering talented, young footballers the opportunity to impress the Club’s youth development coaches at a number of upcoming selection days.

Victory’s Pre-Academy (PAC) and Elite Girls Program coaches will be running open sessions between the 28th, 29th and 30th of June, providing expert advice and insight into the Club’s youth system.


The Pre-Academy provides boys (U9 – U12) and girls (U9 – U14) a platform to enhance their skills alongside Victory’s technical coaches in a weekly training environment at one of five venues across metropolitan Melbourne.

The curriculum focuses on ball mastery and key technical components and is the pathway into the youngest Academy team at Under-13 level.

Elite Girls Program

Victory’s Elite Girls Program is for talented players at Under-15 through to Under-19.

This environment is training only and is designed to complement players who are already training and playing in competitive matches with their clubs.

Both the PAC and the EGP programs have a registration fee of $500 per phase, which includes a full training kit and a 2021/22 club membership. The next phase begins July 16th and concludes November 29th.

Victory’s Pre-Academy sessions are held once per week at Point Cook, Hillside, Epping, East Doncaster and Keysborough, while the Elite Girls Program is based at Maribyrnong Sports College on Friday evenings.
