In the fall of 2013, Corey Vyner and Brian Klaff, who were the coaches of the ‎Israel U-19 National Team, decided to break away from Penticon to create a ‎developmental team for their young players from Moshav Maor and Zichron Yaakov, ‎who needed more experience to be able to compete internationally. They recruited ‎Randy Kahn to join them as one of the player-coaches, and the Warriors were born. ‎‎

‎ ‎

The team was surprisingly competitive in its first spring season, finishing at 9-8 in ‎second place in the B Division, and by the following year the team had won its first ‎division championship and qualified for the top tier. Led by national team players Elan ‎Zashin, Adi and Kfir Leon, Bar and Gal Shrem, Ben Rosenberg, Yomi Klaff, Yuval ‎Barak, Yoni Aron, and Raz Shuker, the team continued to rise through the ranks until ‎qualifying for its first Finals appearance in 2016.

‎ ‎

The addition of top hitter Dan Winnick was supposed to push the team over the ‎top to its first Championship in 2017, but a 2-1 loss in Game 3 of the Finals left the ‎team hungry for more. Finally, in 2018 the breakthrough came, and the Warriors were ‎on top of the ISA. The team then went on to win the 2019 Fall League ‎championship.

‎ ‎

2019, the Warriors, with the help of their friends, went on to Win the ESF ‎Championship at the Men’s Super Cup. This was a very special team. All 15 of you ‎are considered Warriors family. .

‎ ‎

Today, the Warriors are still under the guidance of Corey Vyner, and they continue ‎to reside toward the top of the A Division every year.
