The Boys are Back!

The Boys are Back!

With strong interest from families, Eastern Raiders are launching an U15 Boys team for Summer 2018-19. Spots are filling fast, so register your interest now: enquiries@easternraiders.org.au.

It’s been a few years since Raiders had their own dedicated boys’ team but with great family support and interest, we’re delighted to run an U15 Boys team. Coaches and support crew are organised – pre-season trainings will start in August/September.

Did you know that Raiders ran the first boys’ teams for Waverley, with many players being members of the Victorian State teams? Two of our players represented Australia at the 2012 Junior Men’s World Championships in Argentina and you’ll find their names up on the Honour Board in the Waverley club rooms: Sam Kassianou and Jack Hayes. Most of the team back then started playing T-ball with Raiders and then Primary-B, which was the last grade boys were allowed. At one time we had both U15 and U17 boys teams playing in the SEMR competition.
