Mens senior team pre-season training is underway

Article updated

The Croydon Rangers senior team is under way and it is not too late to join the team.

Gridiron Victoria currently consists of 12 clubs and 13 teams (The Monash Uni enters two teams) split into two different divisions, each team will play the other teams in their division two during the season. The Croydon Rangers are in the top division and will open the season with a game against last seasons runners up the Geelong Buccaneers.

For pre season training, the club trains at the following times:

  • Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7:00 to 9:00pm.
  • Saturday from 10:30am to 12:30pm.

There are a few exceptions to this throughout the preseason:

  • 7th of March – Labour Day Weekend
  • 4th of April – Easter Long Weekend

Once the season is under way, training will be Tuesday and Thursday nights.

The success of the Croydon Rangers has been built on the hard work of players, coaches and support staff, while never losing focus on enjoying the game. Over the years, the team has consistently changed, so there are always opportunities for new players, both experienced and new, to have an impact both on and off the field.

This will be a great year for the Croydon Rangers, and we welcome and encourage everyone to become a part of it.
