Training

Starting from the middle of August Dalziel Dragons train most Saturday at Dalziel Park. Training starts at 10:00am. Training usually lasts an hour for Primary 1-3 players and an hour and a half for Primary 4-7 players.


Parents/guardians are requested to stay within the club grounds during training and games. If you need to leave we request you make arrangements with another parent/guardian to take responsibility for your child. On occasion we may curtail training due to inclement weather and it is not fair to expect coaches to take responsibility for other children.


Games are played over some Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season. See our fixture list here.




Coaches

All Dalziel Dragons coaches and referees are Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) trained. Parents may not assist with training without completing a Rugby Ready course. We are also registered with the Volunteer Centre North Lanarkshire and all coaches have Enhanced Disclosure Scotland Checks. 


Most (though not all) of the coaches were players themselves and usually have children in the squad they coach. As a result the same group of coaches will stay with players as they grow.


During games in Mini Rugby one of the coaches is always on the field with the team to encourage explain and advise when needed.


If you would like to become involved in training, contact one of the coaches on your child’s squad as we are always looking for volunteers.



The Dragons Den

The Mini section has its own clubhouse, the “Dragons Den” which is open most training and match days and is staffed by volunteer parents. It dispenses modestly priced hot food,snacks and drinks to the players and their families - vital especially on cold days. 

The club has access  both to the pitches and toilet facilities at Dalziel Park due  to an arrangement with the Dalziel War Memorial Trust. As a result we are able to offer our players some of the best facilities available in Lanarkshire with several beautifully surfaced rugby pitches, Astroturf and indoor training facilities. 

 

There is plenty of car parking and families are very much encouraged to stay and support their child by watching them play/train. Coaches are also happy to discuss any aspect of a player’s game with their parents or guardians.


We are always needing parents who are willing to give their time and help with the catering in the den. If you are willing to support the club in this way please talk to any of the catering crew.
