The club structure includes a strong emphasis on youth including U/7, U/9, U11, U13, U 15, U17 and U19 junior sides (total membership of approximately 350). Vasco also have 7 senior amateur teams who currently play in the Cape Town/Tygerberg District (total membership of approximately 150), including Over 35 and Over 40 teams.
Our vision at Vasco Da Gama is to take the club to the top flight of South African Football, namely the PSL and thus give our youth a platform to express the talent that they have shown as juniors
