End of Season Newsletter

Last training session
The end of the season is almost with us. Our last training session will be at 10:30 on 15 May at Caswell.

What happens next year?
If your child will be 6+ years old on 1 September 2011 they will stay with the Dragons and start playing against other teams. If they are under 6 they can stay on the beach for another year.
The first event for everyone will be the Rugby Fun day on the ‘Cracker 7’s’ weekend. This will take place on Saturday 27 August in Underhill Park.

Welsh Rugby Union Registration
The Dragons (players over 6) need to register with the Welsh Rugby Union before they can play next year. This registration also covers personal injury insurance. We will be handing out registration cards. Please complete these, with photographs, and return them to Mark as soon as possible.

Who will the Dragons play?
We will play against other under 7’s teams in the Swansea and Gower area. The club also hosts touring sides from all over the UK. The Dragons first game next year is against South Gower (away!) on 4 September. The provisional fixture list is enclosed. All our home games will be held at Bishopston.

The Dragons have a new blog page:

For beach players the blog address remains un-changed:

The Dragons will continue to use the ‘Teamer’ web site to send you text messages about events.

Are you able to help next year?
We are looking for volunteers to run the beach rugby next year.
Nigel and I would also appreciate help with the Dragons.

If you would like to help with coaching please let Mark know. Mumbles Rugby Club will pay for you to do a tag leaders course. The courses are run by the Ospreys development officer. They are good fun and very informative. These courses are suitable for complete rugby novices. At this age it’s all about having fun.

Thank You!
I hope that your kids have enjoyed the rugby and will continue to play next year. I was really apprehensive about becoming a coach but have really enjoyed it.

Looking back at the photographs on the blog confirms just how much passion and effort the Dragons put into their playing............when they weren’t building sand castles!
