Dragons Academy - 2024 Trial Details

Trial Details:

All players (including current Academy 2023 players) must register to trial. We only run trials at specific period in each term. Registrants will be notified by email of trial dates/time/venue.

If a player is assessed to be at a skill level where the group is full, we will advise the trial outcome and place the player onto a wait list. Should any players withdraw or get moved to other groups, we will draw from the wait list to fill the vacant spot.
