Date For Your Diary:
On Saturday 5th September 2015, Instead of our usual indoor Basketball & Rugby sessions we’re going to have a morning of fun in Monikie Country Park, with lots of activities and some food. Everyone is welcome! The event has a Facebook Page where you can stay up to date with all the plans.
We will also be hosting a Sponsored Push around the park, so if you feel like really earning that hot dog, why not sign up? There will be 1KM, 3KM and 10KM routes set up on the day. The Sponsorship Page is live and for cash donations hard copy forms are available too.
See You There!
“I don’t use a wheelchair all the time, can I still come along to play with your club?”
We’re often asked this question, and the answer is a resounding yes!
Wheelchair Sports are all fully inclusive at club level, which means anyone can hop in a chair and give them a try. In fact, sports like Wheelchair Rugby League continue this practice right through to International Representative level, where teams are permitted two able-bodied players on the court at any time.
If you find that participating in running sport is challenging, or indeed if you’re able-bodied and want to come along with a friend, you’ll be made very welcome at any Dragons training session.
Team GB’s Gaz Choudhry is an amputee and as such he doesn’t use a wheelchair all the time; However he has played at the very highest level of Wheelchair Basketball, representing his country at the 2012 Paralympics. You can see Gaz chatting about his career in the video below.
Summer Holidays mean that there will be NO CLUB TRAINING on the following dates:
Saturday 18th July
Saturday 25th July
Saturday 1st August
Training will resume on Saturday 8th August.
Enjoy the break!
