Since 2007, the academy has provided training, mentoring, and work experience to Auckland youth who are alienated to a greater or lesser extent from the mainstream school system. It provides the opportunity for these 15-19 year olds to chase their dream of a career in professional sport and leverages educational achievement and personal development off this. Most of our members don't finish up as professional sportspeople, although some give it a good go. However, when the dream of a professional career ends we hope our boys are well placed to make a good life for themsleves.
Since 2009 the academy has largely been funded through the free metal collection service it offers to Auckland homes and businesses. People phone 021 263 9800 and arrange for the boys to pick up donated metal. Wherever possible this is recycled rather than just scrapped.

September 3, 2017
Champions again. It's not NRL, and it's Hibiscus Coast rather than Papakura, but congrats to Donny and Rahs Tuivai-Lopa pictured here with father Jack, a man of incredible patience. Sharman Cup Reserve Grade Plate Champions 2017.

Michael Lemafa, age 17 and a half, made his debut in the NYC (NRL Under 20) competition today. The Warriors were well beaten, 10-68, by Souths on the day, but what a day for this young fella.
July 29, 2017
James Bell made his debut for the Warriors last night. We've been waiting for this day all year. A tough little buggar who doesn't miss his tackles, hates losing, and plays his heart out every time he takes the field.
April 23, 2017
Michael Lemafa, age 17, and a member of the Warriors NYC (Under 20) squad. It's taken the club until round 7 to put the photo up on their web page, but they've always been slow starters!

|2016, September 2 Congratulations to Michael Lemafa. He captained the Otahuhu Leopards Under 16 'B' team to the Auckland Under 16 title, and was MVP in the NZ Schools development grade grand final where his school, Onehunga High, came from 20-4 down to win 21-20, with Mikeey scoring the final try which tied things up with a few minutes to go.|
|2016, March 20 Well done Jazz Tevaga who made his NRL debut today - starting lineup as hooker for the Warriors after the late withdrawal of Isaac Luke. He's the first of that very good 2011 Papakura High School team to go all the way!|
