Our philosophy and approach
Moss Vale Dragonflies always attempt to find the best teams and divisions for all players. When we place players in teams we take into consideration their ability, experience, age, size and friendships. Our aim is to help build skills and develop players and teams while also trying to ensure players develop a sense of community and an understanding of fairness and sportsmanship. While we strive to do our best, we not do support a win at all costs approach and recognise that long term development and growth sometimes means having a season where individuals or teams may not experiences as much success as they might like.
Below is a general guide to ages and divisions but as with all guides there will be exceptions.
