DRAGON SPORT

Ceredigion coordinate, support, educate, train staff and collect data on Dragon Sport. The programme is already established in Ceredigion and is strongly embedded in all schools. There are pathways of development or exit routes set up for the on-going provision of the sports on offer. Recruitment of volunteers is also essential. Volunteers can be recruited from students at the University, secondary school pupils involved with 5 X 60 activities, from active parents, from sport lovers and from skilled volunteers. promotes the value of volunteers, that is: ‘Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless!’

5 X 60

Another integral programme is 5X60 which has essentially changed the face of provision of sport in schools. The Welsh Assembly’s ‘Climbing Higher’ document states a target has been set off seeing 90% of children taking part in frequent exercise. There is a 5×60 officer based at each of the seven secondary schools with the remit of providing extra-curricular opportunities for pupils of all abilities to part in a wide range of physical activities.

DRAGON MULTI SKILLS

Sport Wales has launched a generic skills programme that concentrates on a specific skill and not sports itself. aim to initially roll out this programme to schools for curriculum time teaching, and expand it into the community in the future. The programme has a FUNdemental developmental effect from ‘Play to Learn’ within the Foundation Phase to ‘Dragon Multi Skills’ in Key Stage two onto the 8 areas of ‘Dragon Sport.’
