In October this year, Dragon Sport will celebrate its seventh birthday and it has quickly become one of the largest and most successful Lottery funded projects in the UK.
Since its inception in 2000, the scheme has recruited eight sports to its roster providing opportunities for children to learn new skills in rugby, athletics, cricket, football, hockey, netball, tennis and golf
It has long been credited with helping to achieve the targets set out in the Welsh Assembly Government’s Climbing Higher strategy, which aims to see all primary school children and 90% of secondary school children participating in at least 60 minutes of physical activity five times a week – a target to be achieved over the next 20 years.
