Welcome to the Rangers Academy

Player Development

We utilize an academy focus in developing our players.  The focus of the academy is to develop the individual technical skill of all players in the club.  This means all members of the club are a part of the academy first and foremost and during academy training we focus on the development of the individual player.  Academy practices are held weekly at a variety of locations and all Rangers players are encouraged to attend their age group. 

Players that have achieved a proficient level of technical development and physical development are invited to join a Rangers Academy Travel team.  The focus of the travel teams is to take the individual player and expose them to team concepts and tactics.
