Co-Op Training 
The Macquarie Dragons have introduced Co-operative style training to teach children the art of football at a very young age.
Co-operative or academy training styles teach the children ball skills and technique. It allows teams to train as a unit and also as a squad. The sessions are fun and form an important part of learning for young children.

Facilitated by an experienced head coach, sessions will be held at Waterloo Park on Monday afternoon / evening.
Under 6’s & 7’s will train from 5:00 - 5:50 pm, 
Under 8’s & 9's from 6:00 - 6:50 pm and
Under 10's & U11's from 6:30 - 7:30 pm.

Weekly sessions will commence in late March.

Specialist Goalkeeper Training returns for 2018 

This year, training with Josh will be on Tuesday evenings at Waterloo Park
U8-11 4:30pm ; U12-16 5:45pm (limit 10 per session)
