What is Dragon Multi-Skills & Sport?

Dragon Sports and Multiskills

At Sport Wales our ambition is to get every child hooked on sport for life. To achieve this it is essential that every child has the opportunity to develop their physical skills.

Dragon Multi-Skills & Sport is the next step on the sporting skills ladder after Play to Learn (3-7years). It is aimed at children in the primary phase aged 7-11 years. The ethos of the multi-skills approach is for young people to develop key physical skills that are applicable to and transferable across a range of different sports.

What types of activities are involved?

Dragon Multi-skills addresses the development of fundamental movement skills - agility, balance and coordination - the ABC's. Every child develops at their own pace, so sessions are tailored to meet the young person's needs and activities are designed to support their physical development in a progressive way.

Following on from the Dragon Multi-skills approach is Dragon Sport. As a child's fundamental skills develop they will be introduced to more sport specific activities including:

1. Athletics
2. Cricket
3. Football
4. Golf
5. Hockey
6. Netball
7. Rugby
8. Tennis
