Carleton Ravens Players Guest Coach

Ravens at practice_e2Great to see our Warriors learning the importance of giving back to their community and that’s exactly what happened last night.  Warriors alumni Tyler Young (OT) and Stefano Napolitano (All-Star FB) brought along fellow Carleton Ravens buddy Andrew Ellis (WR) to Guest Coach at last night’s Bantam tryout.
 
Both Tyler and Stefano have been best friends since their Warriors days.  Together with Andrew Ellis, the three motivated our young Warriors to challenge themselves, their expectations and their roles as teammates.  The Bell Warriors want to thank these three young CIS players for their commitment to our community, sport, club and players.  THANK YOU!

Gee Gee’s Visit is a Big Hit!

Gee Gee visit_e

4 Gee Gees players and U of Ottawa Gee Gees Coach Chris Shibley were guest coaches tonight for our tykes and mosquitos.   The tempo of both practices was clearly affected by the presence of our hometown CIS Gee Gees.  Brian Patterson, Bell Warriors Tyke Head Coach, summed up the night as, “a great experience for our young players.  It’s great making a connection with players at such a high level.  We had a great night.”  Half way through the practice, the Gee Gee guest coaches joined our Bantam practice for a spirited final hour of tryouts.   5th year Gee Gee QB Derek Wendel spoke to the group after the practice and stated, “the importance of putting as much effort in the classroom that our Warrior Bantams did on the practice field tonight and you’ll have much to be proud of.
 
HUGE THANK YOU to the Gee Gee’s for volunteering their time to support our Warriors.  It’ll be a night that our young players will not soon forget.  Click HERE to find out more about the U. of Ottawa Summer Football Camp.  We very highly recommend it!

U of Ottawa Gee Gees to Guest Coach

HOW GREAT IS THIS!!!!!!!!

The University of Ottawa Gee Gees are coming in car loads to Guest Coach Wednesday May 18th for our Warriors Tyke, Mosquito and Bantam players. All three teams will be practicing at Bell High School from 6:30-8:00 p.m. “We’re big fans of Ottawa U’s Head Coach Jamie Baressi and the Gee Gees football team & program. We’re so lucky to have this elite CIS football program in our backyard. For our young players this will certainly be an exciting night. For our more established veterans, this is a tremendous opportunity to hone their skills and be trained by University level coaches and players. The Warriors embrace the importance of community and giving back. Clearly that’s a value that the Gee Gees believe in as well.” – Paul Stewart, Bell Warriors Bantam Head Coach and President.
 
Join us Wednesday and please show your appreciation to the Gee Gees for volunteering their time to our Warriors!

Warrior Day Another Fun Day of Football

The 5th Annual Warrior Day has come and gone and as with previous events, everyone left having had a great time. The annual FREE event returned to the Richmond Fair Grounds this year.  Thankfully the weatherman cooperated and we made it through the entire event with only a few drops of rain.  “Warrior Day is a fun event that we host annually for free.  It’s a chance for young players to get introduced to our great sport and for those that already play, there is some quality training to reinforce good football fundamentals.  This year’s event finished with a fun mini-tournament of touch football that was a definite hit. ” stated Tim Sheahan VP of the Warriors.

There is so much more to the sport of football than X’s and O’s and winning and losing. The lessons learned playing football will serve our many Warrior players off the field as well long after their playing days are over.
