We wrote this almost a year ago and with daily numbers still climbing we think the message is now more important than ever.
In this time of social distancing, isolation and a time where some of our family are unable to work and have businesses on the line, it's more important than ever to stop and talk to your friends, family and colleagues to check in with them and ask if they are Ok. If you have the ability to help someone, please do so. You never know one good deed might just be all they need right now. If you are someone that is struggling at this time and do need some help, then please reach out to coaches, teammates and friends. There are a lot of people in our family that can help out so please don't struggle in silence.
Lastly, we'd like to emphasize the importance to all our #family and friends to be responsible and practice socially distancing by staying home unless is absolutely necessary. Together we can get through this and get back to football.

NEW UNSW RAIDERS LOGO!!
We are proud to announce our new 2021 Season logo design. We've looked back at our past and brought it into the present mixing the original oldschool Rainbow Raiders tail in with our current Raiders logo. The best part is that this throwback inspired design will be on all our helmets for the season to go with our new Jersey design!

We've been pretty quiet on the social media front recently because we've been staying home trying to ride through this Lockdown. However it doesnt mean we havent stopped working to improve the club! Look out for an announcement about our logo tomorrow! #UNSWRaiders
Today we would have been on the field for our first pre-season training for 2021. Unfortunately with Greater Sydney in lockdown all training sessions have been postponed. However as Coach Bru points out, there are plenty of other ways to get prepared for the season. Watch game film, search YouTube for positional coaching videos, or even chat with each other and get mentally prepared for the season for your position. If you're new and thinking about playing with the UNSW Raiders, contact us and we'll put you in touch with some players where you can ask about the game and get help to learn before you even step onto the practice field! Together we can get through this. #Family #UNSWRaiders
