The Victoria Spartans were formed in the late 80’s by Roy Vollinger. The team trained at the old Velox Rugby fields on Gordon Head road and played games out of Royal Athletic Park. In its first year of existence, the midgets were Island champions. In their second, they were crowned provincial champs.
The name Spartans was derived from the movie Spartacus which was a favorite of Coach Vollinger’s. Their uniforms were all white, just as the good guys always had white hats in the movies.
The 90’s saw continued success and multiple appearances in provincial championship games. The Midget’s claimed the title in 1996, and the Bantam’s in 1998.
The new millennium began with Bantam and Midget provincial titles in 2000. 2010 saw our midgets bring home a provincial title, followed by the Bantam’s in 2011 and the Peewee’s in 2013. In 2015, both Bantam and Midget Spartan teams appear in the provincial championship final while the Junior Bantam’s captured the Island Co-op league title.
