The Warriors are off to work.

All 37 players will descend on a number of locations to work on 13 projects as par of the 'Warriors Work Week' initiative.

They'll mainly be working at schools in the Otara area and will help build garden boxes, dig holes, plant trees, hang shade cloth, build a cycle track and shift almost 100 tonnes of soil and aggregate.

Coach Matt Elliott says it's a great opportunity to make a difference to people’s lives.

But he says they also want the players to understand what it’s like for athletes striving to get to the Olympics, who have to get up early every morning to train, go to work to earn a living and then train again later in the day.
