Dragon Sport is a Sports Wales initiative funded by the National Lottery, designed to offer 7-11 year olds fun and enjoyable sporting opportunities.
Liaising closely with schools and community sports clubs, Dragon Sport is making a dramatic impact on sports participation by encouraging children to become involved in a variety of organised sporting activities.
The scheme intends to broaden the sporting interests of children who already take part in sport and to involve children who currently lack such opportunities outside of their school PE lessons.
Dragon Sport introduces children to coaching, skill development and appropriate competition using versions of the adult game, modified to meet their needs and skill levels.
A portfolio of eight modified sports is used in the scheme. The eight Dragon Sports are rugby, athletics, cricket, football, hockey, netball, tennis and golf.
Whilst the primary focus of Dragon Sport is improving sports provision for 7-11 year olds across Wales, Dragon Sport also focuses on recruiting parents and other volunteers as helpers to support the development of after school and community sports clubs.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or queries, whether you are interested in becoming a volunteer/coach or you would like more information on what activities are near you please contact the Dragon Sport Officer on 01633 628962.
