The Warriors will follow that up with a five-game road trip with stops in Bakersfield, Los Angeles and Reno.

After coming off a solid inaugural season in Santa Cruz, in which they finished 32-18 and were able to make it to the finals where they lost to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in a 2-0 sweep, the Warriors will have to overcome 13 sets of back-to-back games.
Six of those sets will be at Kaiser, where the sea dubs went 19-4 last season.
