Here at Norwich Dragons we are proud of our fantastic junior team. For many years Dragons have worked hard to coach and develop young players from childrens korfball all the way to international standards.
This season has been a real success story, our juniors have been part of an East Anglian junior league and narrowly came second.

Had a really good day up at 5.30 to go to Kent with the Dragons Juniors taking U9's, u11's, u13's and u16's with help from Gemma Baker and mike fererday and Liz Williams, good weather in the morning a few heavy showers in the afternoon. The Under 9's had some good games and over all they came 7th. The u11's won two and lost two but in the last game in the morning we had some injuries so we had to forfeit the afternoon games. Then the u13's won all their morning games and went in to the top pool in the afternoon they then won their first two games and then won a very close game against Cambridge City 5-4 it went down to the last game against Tornadoes they went 1-0 up and then Tornadoes scored 1 in very rainy conditions Dragons then scored another to win 2-1. This meant that the U13's won their age group convincingly by winning every single game they played. I am very proud of them all. The U 16's in the morning won 2 and lost 1 going in to the top pool in the afternoon they played three games in the afternoon drew 1 and then beat Bearsted and Tornadoes to win the U16's. Again this is a top result and I am proud of them all. This is a good showing for Dragons and the first time we have won 2 age groups.
What a fantastic day for dragons korfball club, through rain and cold our juniors did us proud as both our u13s and u16s won their respective tournaments coming home with a lump of gold each to start what is sure to be an ever growing collection.
A huge well done guys and stay tuned for a tournament round up and many photos from our budding club photographers (parents). what a proud day for our young players and coaches fantastic effort.
Finally a big thank you to all those parents and helpers who made this possible you are the lifeblood of youth korfball and we couldn't do it without you.
A big congratulations to the Dragons players (7 out of 8) who represented Norfolk under 13s and the Dragons who played for the U11s Norolk side as well.
These two Norfolk sides played exciting goalscoring Korfball and placed amazingly with the U13s coming second and the U11s winning.
