Formed in 2001, the WA Raiders are Western Australia’s State Gridiron Team. This year, Women’s and Men’s teams will be competing at the Gridiron Australia National Championship in NSW from the 29th May – 7th June 2020. The Men will be defending their National Championship, while the women will be seeking their first title in their second year of participation. The Gridiron Australia National Championship will see 10 teams from 6 states and over 600 players take the field and digital/social audience of over 80,000.
This year’s WA Raiders Campaign will cost around $170,000 and the Women’s and Men’s teams will need your support on their path to victory. Every dollar raised goes towards reducing the costs that each of the 110 players and additional team personnel need to pay towards travel, accommodation and tournament costs and makes sure that we field the best team possible, rather than only those athletes that can afford the $1500 in players fees.
The WA Raiders are more than just a state team. The program brings together players, coaches and supporters from all 8 Gridiron West clubs each year strengthening our community, creating new friendships, and ensuring the ongoing development of American Football in Western Australia.
Donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible and every little bit helps. Donate today and be a part of the WA Raiders 2020 National Championship campaign!
