The Dublin Dragons American Football Club is based in Lucan Co. Dublin. The Dragons are proud to be one of the founding members of the current Irish American Football League. At present, the Club plays full contact, kitted American Football in the IAFL 11's League.
We attract an array of talented players from all countries including the USA, while at the same time producing some of our best home-grown talent here in Ireland. We are proud of the fact that we have one of the best coaching setups in the country who work with all of the players to maximise their potential and therefore help the club continue it's success. Our coaches passion for the game is only topped by their desire to win! All of our coaches are BAFCA qualified.
The Dragons main objective is.. Work Hard. Play Hard. We always put 100% into our training to ensure that on the field, we perform to the best of our ability.
This is no nonsense football and at times it can be grueling, but well worth the effort. We also believe that this sport should be fun! It is important to us that our players enjoy playing football and get as much out of what happens on the field as off it. The team is well drilled and team spirit is never an issue with the Dragons.
Game days are ideal for friends and family. We attract many spectators from the surrounding areas along with the friends and families of our players. So, if you decide to come along, bring everyone with you!!!
There is great heritage in the Club and every Dragons player is proud to wear the Maroon shirt, and old gold helmet of the Dragons. They take this onto the field with them and give 100% every game.
As a new player, we will assess your strengths and weaknesses and aim to help you improve and be the best that you can be. From there, we will help you decide which position is most suited to your strengths. Whatever size, speed or agility, there is a position here for you.
Both offensive and defensive positions are highly skilled and it takes time to learn the proper techniques. Once you have an idea of what position you are playing, then comes the competition for a place on the squad. Key to the success of this is not only playing ability, but good attendance at training and prompt payment of Club fees.
Coaches like to see players make the effort when it comes to training. If you can't make training, a courtesy call or e-mail should be sent to the Coach or G.Manager of the Club. There is a lot to learn in this game, so making the sacrifices to get to training will bring it's own rewards.
