Registration Day set! First training session Sunday 1st February, 2015

Do you want to be a Warrior in 2015?

Warriors Wanted

The Monash Warriors are looking for rookies of all shapes and sizes to join in for Season 2015.

As a rookie we expect you not to know the rules, we expect you to think that you’re too big or too small to play, that’s the beautiful thing about being a rookie, you get taught how to play the game.

The Warriors have the best coaches in Victoria who will train you up and make sure that you are ready to go before you hit the field. We don’t mind if you make mistakes, all we expect is that you turn up, be ready to learn at all times, follow instructions and help us win another Championship! Sounds simple right?

Registration day is mandatory for all rookies but don’t worry, you won’t be alone. The Warriors will be expecting up to 60 rookies to turn up on registration day. Everyone learns together!

Training begins at 10AM on Sunday February 1st, 2015. This means that you will need to turn up at least 45 minutes early to sign in and warm up. Training will be held at Monash University Clayton Campus at the Soccer Fields. Runners and a light and dark shirt/singlet.

Do you have what it takes to be a Warrior?

See you Sunday February 1st!

Former Warrior Adam Gotsis knew when he left Gridiron Victoria for Division I College that he would need to work his backside off to earn a spot in Georgia Tech’s defensive system. That was a challenge he was ready for as he left his family & friends and boarded a plane to Atlanta.

Adam has shown exactly what hard work and persistence can do as he defied the odds very early in his career at Georgia Tech by avoiding red shirt and actually getting valuable game time in his rookie season. He never looked back after that.

Not only has Adam won a starting spot along the defensive line for the Yellow Jackets, but he has been an invaluable part of the defense and a leader on the team. NFLDraftScout.com have written an article after the Nation’s 16th-ranked Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets defeated rivals and 9th-ranked Georgia Bulldogs 30-24 (which can be found here) describing Gotsis as “a bit raw” with “untapped potential”.

Recent history has seen the Warriors defeat the Buccaneers in Vic Bowls (4-0 leading into Vic Bowl XXX) however the Buccaneers were looking to make their own history by going the whole season undefeated, a mark they fell short of at the final hurdle in 2013 when the Warriors defeated them 30-13 in Vic Bowl XXIX.

With the different format of divisions in 2014, the Warriors were top of Division A whilst the Buccaneers were top of Division B. With the split divisions, this only enable to Warriors to meet the Buccaneers once in the regular season, Week 1 in Corio where the Buccaneers defeated the Warriors 49-22.
