FAQs

I already play for a club, can I still attend?

Of course. The Dragons Training Centre is aimed at providing additional training to complement your club’s training

Are your sessions for beginners or elite players?

Our sessions are mixed-ability in line with FAW youth coaching principles. Our coaches are experienced in ensuring the sessions are challenging for experienced players whilst allowing beginner players the support to develop.

Can I bring a friend/team-mate/sister?

Of course, they are more than welcome! We’d ask if their parent register here prior to attending.

What footwear do the girls need?

The surface is 3G artificial grass so astroturf or firm ground/artificial grass boots are advised. Contact us if you’re unsure if you have the right footwear.

What clothing do I/my child need?

You are welcome to wear any sports clothing which is appropriate for the weather. Dragons Training Centre training kit is available to order when you’ve joined the centre.

What if I can't make every session?

No problem, we appreciate our players have a lot of other commitments, so there is no obligation to attend every week. If you miss a Soccer Profile Assessment week there will be a chance to catch up on future weeks.

Does the player need to be registered with a club to play?

No, the sessions are fun & competitive and can be enjoyed whether you play for a club or not.

I don't live in Cardiff. Do you offer sessions anywhere else?

We currently only run sessions at Ocean Way, however as we grow we are looking into other venues. If you think there would be interest in a session near you, email us and we would be happy to discuss this.

Do you run sessions on any other days? Friday is inconvenient for me!

We currently run on Fridays as this doesn’t clash with most club training. We are open to running sessions on other days if there is sufficient demand.

Do you run during school holidays?

We aim to run throughout the year, including through summer holidays. We will usually stop for 2 weeks over Christmas holidays and 2 weeks in the summer.

What are the costs?

The monthly fee is £32. This includes the weekly training sessions, your Soccer Profile license, and free entry to Cardiff City LFC games.

Payment is by Direct Debit via GoCardless.

I'm looking for a team, can you help?

The Dragons Centre does provide a pathway into the Cardiff City LFC youth teams. We also have connections with other local clubs so let us know if you are looking for a club.
