About Us

The Seapoint Dragons was established in January 2012 as a result of an initiative among a number of clubs within Leinster Rugby. Our aim is to provide children and adults with learning disabilities, an opportunity to learn and play tag rugby in a safe, enjoyable and exciting environment and in doing so we look to develop their skills and confidence.

The players, who are both male and female, all have a learning disability. Our junior squad caters for players between the ages of 8 and 14, while our senior squad caters for players from 15 years and above with no upper age limit.

Apart from providing our players with an opportunity to participate in a sporting activity we also seek to offer parents, families and friends of people with a disability a friendly environment where they can relax, meet new people and enjoy watching the players develop.

Our patron, Felix Jones (Seapoint, Munster and Ireland), has attended training sessions and matches and provides a huge source of encouragement and support to both players and coaches alike.

We train each Sunday morning at 12:30 in Kilbogget Park. Our coaching staff comprise of a team of dedicated volunteers drawn from the community and the club. We also have support from Transition Year students in both Blackrock College and Holy Child Killiney, who provide us within invaluable assistance at our training sessions.

The coaching staff have seen, and continue to see a very noticeable improvement in our players' skill levels and understanding of the game. We look forward to growing this initiative and using tag rugby as a means of providing children and adults with learning disabilities a sense of fun, teamwork and inclusion.
