The Warriors Gridiron Club was founded in 1987 by the late James White. Originally named the Nunawading Warriors, the club won the minor premiership in 1988, however were eliminated in the finals series with two consecutive losses. The Warriors would have to wait a decade before they returned to the finals series, which happened in 1998 with a semi final loss to the now defunct Banyule Panthers. From this point, the Warriors have been the pre-eminent team in Gridiron Victoria, going on to play finals football every year except 2003 and winning 7 of the 10 Vicbowls they have contested since 2000. With the most recent win in 2010, the Warriors performed a 3-peat of State Championships.
