About The Dragons Academy
The Dragon Academy has been created to support the development of lacrosse players in Wales and with Welsh heritage. We provide support and encouragement for each player to find the right level of lacrosse whether that be within a performance environment in the future, or to continue to play recreationally.
We have created a team of coaches who follow an ethos of caring for each player whilst encouraging them to find the best of themselves both on and off the pitch.
We recognise that players develop at different rates and in different ways in all areas of required skill set (technical, tactical, physiological, psychological and social). The pathway allows players to enter at different stages and ensures that everyone has playing opportunities that are appropriate in order for them to develop and continue to enjoy playing lacrosse through their lifetime.
