The 2023 season will complete in February 2024.
The 2024 season doesn’t yet have official dates but it’s likely we’ll commence training in July 2024. It’s time to plan your involvement with the most successful gridiron club in Victoria – The Warriors!
For New Players
American Football has been played in Victoria for almost 40 years. It’s a sport that’s accessible to all body types and ages. We have had new players join us in the 40s and enjoy success, as well people with larger body types that may find it challenging to play other sports find that their size is advantageous in American Football. The nature of the structure and stoppages that exist in the sport also make this sport accessible to those with some mental disabilities such as autism.
After some changes made in the offseason, there is an improved focus on respect and player physical and emotional safety. The Warriors are welcoming club for all people that want to enjoy American Football.
If you are interested in the sport but not sure if you want to play, feel free to come down to one of our training sessions during the preseason (July-September). You don’t need to register beforehand but recommend you bring water and football boots if you can.
Preseason for Men’s training will be held on:
- Sundays 10am – 1pm
- Wednesdays 7pm – 9:30pm
Preseason for Junior’s training will be held on:
- Sundays 9am – 10am (Once per month)
- Wednesdays 6:30pm – 7:30pm (Each week once we get close to the start of the season)
Training is held at Southern Reserve, Mulgrave.
Start of Season (Sept/Oct)
The Junior’s season often starts a little after the Men’s season start but at this stage we expect this to be around September/October.
Gridiron Victoria offers the following competitions for the year:
- Men’s – Register interest for the 2024 season
- Under 17s – Register interest for the 2024 season
- Under 14s – Register interest for the 2024 season
It’s not clear if Gridiron Victoria will be offering a Women’s competition this season due to lack of interest. They are targeting a Flag Football competition in 2024.
