Covid-19 Training Guidelines
From Wednesday 8th July we will be running outdoor training 6pm - 7pm at Aireville Park, Skipton. This session is open to cadets and seniors. The safety of all Dragons and their families is really important to us and the following guidelines will apply:
- Groups will work in max 6 and there will be no swapping between groups during the session.
- There will be a maximum of 4 groups per session.
- Players will stay socially distant throughout the session.
- Balls and equipment will be cleaned before and after the session and will not be shared between groups.
Please bring your own hand sanitiser and use before the session and at the end of the session. You are also encouraged to use this regulary throughout the session.
Please also bring your own water bottles.
If you are showing corona virus symptoms please do not come to training and if you develop symptons after the session please let the coach know so we can inform other players.
Due to the restrictions we ask players to register for each training session. Registration will be on a first-come-first-served basis weekly and can be via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via the Craven Dragons Facebook Group. We also ask if you are not able to attend you let us know.
Training will be fitness, ball and footwork skills based. We will not be able to play netball. We will work hard and have fun!

Latest News about Mother of Dragons (and her bad leg!)
Some of you may know that I am not my usual mobile self and am hobbling about on crutches after an interesting 3 weeks. I now know that I have a prolapsed disc which is causing my leg pain so at lease I know what I am dealing with.
To help me cope during my recovery one of the things I am doing is a video blog and I thought I would share this - for those of you who are interested. It is helping me keep focused on the positive and recognise that my recovery will be a continuation of successes and days when it doesn't all go according to plan. I am hoping you might some benefit from me sharing this with you.
