2011 Junior training starts soon!

The first official training session for the Bay City Buccaneers Under 18 team will be on Thursday the 18th of August at 6:00pm.

This will be an information night and light training session so bring your football boots.

All starting positions are vacant - American Football is a diverse sport and we are looking for kids of all shapes and sizes to be a part of the Buccaneers this year.

We will have more information about the 2011 Junior season in the coming weeks.

We expect the season to start in late September and run approximately 8 weeks with a 2 week finals series.

There will be at least 5 teams in the Gridiron Victoria junior season, awaiting confirmation from the league.

Buccaneers represent Australia at 2011 World Championships

At the recent 2011 World Championship of American Football in Austria, two of the Buccaneers’ senior playing squad represented their country with pride – and great success!

Linebackers James McFadzean and Layke Rossiello competed in all three matches for the green and gold  against the USA (eventual winners), Mexico, Germany and in the final for 5th place against host nation Austria.

Both players were outstanding with many tackles and assists, whilst James was awarded the Australian MVP for the Mexico game on the back of 3 solo tackles, 4 assists and a sack.

For all the statistics from all four games and to read more about how our boys played, check out the official Australian Outback website.

Buccaneers selected for 2011 World Championships

The club would like to congratulate James MacFadzean and Layke Rossiello who have been selected to play in the Australian Team in the IFAF World Cup in Austria in July.

The boys fly out on the 25th of June to the Australian Pre Camp at the Australian Institute of Sport in the ACT prior to going to Austria.

Congratulations to both players and good luck to them and the Australian “Outback” National team as they take on the world.
