Warriors Launch New Website!

webhomepage

It’s been in the works for quite a few months but we are now proud to launch a new website for our non-profit community football club“, states Paul Stewart, President of the Bell Warriors Football Club.
 
Functionality was key. We wanted an easy access portal for everything Warriors. Visitors will quickly see that we have put a great deal of emphasis to ensure supporters and sponsors of our Warriors are given increased visibility and recognition. Our social media feeds have become important communication tools for the club in the past few years and they are all showcased on the home page as is easy access to our Warrior Highlight Videos, scores, standings and scholarship opportunities. Our Events page can be sourced many ways and will highlight our club’s events and those of each individual team for easy reference for our Warrior families and supporters.
 
Warriors can now purchase Warrior Promo Items on line with our convenient on-line order and payment options. Our Awards page will list every award winner for every level back to the early 1970’s. We have a complete summary for each team’s season dating back to 2009 and we will add to this season summary annually to build a reference for alumni to view and enjoy. We have added a News Blog which will contain news articles and press releases. Our Registration Module can be accessed from every page which will give families all the information and documents required to register for any level of football with the Warriors including our Winter Workouts and other special events as they are announced.  For those Warrior families looking for convenience, you can now pay for your registration on-line for the first time. We gave this project a great deal of attention to ensure that navigating the site was clear and easy.  We are very pleased with the outcome and want to recognize the team at Creative Unity which partnered with us to enable us to bring this new site to our Warriors’ family.” – summarizes Paul Stewart.
 
Go to www.bellwarriors.ca to see the new site and if you are a Warrior Alumni, Player, or Supporter, go to our “Registration” page and be sure to join our Warrior Alumni and Supporter Group. It’s absolutely free and will allow us to keep you up-to-date on Everything Warriors! Don’t forget to check us out on YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter #Warriors4Life

2014 Warriors Banquets & Silent Auctions a Huge Hit!

Header

The Bell Warriors Football Club has reached out to local companies and supporters and the response was fantastic Saturday (January 10/15) at their Team Banquets. Two Club banquets were held. One for the two youngest teams (Tyke ages 8-10 and Mosquito ages 11-12) and one for the Warriors two oldest teams (Pee Wee ages 13-14 and Bantam ages 15-16). In addition to the big day of banquets, the Warriors hosted their 3rd Annual Silent Auctions, one with each banquet. In all, the Warriors Club raised over $5,000 which will go directly back towards purchasing new football equipment for our players.
 
“We are so pleased with the support we received from local businesses with their donations to our silent auctions. Our Club is admired league wide for our commitment to our player’s safety. One of our primary goals as a club is to focus continually on upgrading our equipment and re-conditioning our existing equipment. Having said that, we also strive to keep our sport as affordable as possible. It’s a constant challenge to balance. We introduced Silent Auctions to our banquets two years ago and with this year’s proceeds, we have raised approximately $15,000. To put that into perspective, this covers the purchase cost of over 40 new helmets for our players.” says Paul Stewart, Bell Warriors President and Bantam Head Coach.
 
Stewart continues, “With so much of our volunteers’ time dedicated to hosting winter conditioning sessions; fielding four tackle football teams and 4 touch girl’s spring football teams, it does not leave much time for hitting the streets to solicit local businesses to support our efforts by becoming a partner with the Warriors. We rely heavily on community support to offer our football programs. Most people do not realize that less than 50% of our proceeds come as a result of player fees. We truly thank the following team sponsors for making our program possible:
 

Gold Sponsors
ScotiabankPrimo Self Storage; Ontario Iron Works; The Glen; Ottawa Valley Kitchens
Play Ball Sponsors
RCMP Officer’s Mess;  Yasmin Fues, Royal Lepage; Clarington Investments
Bronze Sponsors
Metroland Media

 
“Our challenge continues to be to get the word out to more businesses and individuals that believe in the importance of our youth learning the value of hard work, respect, responsibility, commitment, sportsmanship and leadership. Our motto is ‘Warriors For Life’ and that’s exactly what our program is all about.”
