The much-anticipated Gladiators season has finally commenced with an exhilarating first week of tryouts, boasting a remarkable turnout of 148 enthusiastic students! It’s a thrilling start to what promises to be an unforgettable season for the Gladiators.

Our dedicated coaches now face the challenging task of selecting the most exceptional Gladiators after the upcoming week of intense trials. The competition is fierce, and the talent is undeniable, making the decision-making process all the more daunting.

For those who make the cut, an exciting journey awaits during the Gladiators Week, scheduled for the week of September 25th. This action-packed week kicks off with a comprehensive injury prevention training session on September 25th and 26th in the grand auditorium. It’s a crucial step in ensuring our athletes remain at the peak of their performance throughout the season.

The highlight of Gladiators Week will undoubtedly be the Gladiators Kick-Off event, where we’ll officially introduce our selected rosters. The event will take place at the Tiber Café and will feature esteemed guests, including President Pavoncello, the Dean of Academics and Students, the Director of Athletics and Student Services, and representatives from the Student Government club. It’s an opportunity to showcase our athletes’ dedication and celebrate their achievements in front of the entire Gladiators community.

But that’s not all! To further foster camaraderie and unity among our athletes, on September 30 and October 1, all selected individuals will have the unique opportunity to participate in the Gladiators Weekend, a complimentary getaway to the picturesque Abruzzo region. During this weekend, they’ll have the chance to train, bond, and create lasting memories, vital elements in building a strong sense of family within our team.

As we embark on this exciting journey, we extend our best wishes and good luck to all the aspiring Gladiators. The season ahead is filled with promise, and we can’t wait to see our talented athletes in action. Together, we’ll make this season one for the books!
