Interested In Trying Out?
Here's How You Can Start.
Keep Up With Us
By joining the mailing list, and joining our recruitment group on Facebook, we’ll be able to notify you when we have important information for you. You’ll stay updated on events like training slots, fitness testing, and other events that New Dragons holds throughout the year.
New Dragons will be hosting training slots at the University of Toronto throughout the Fall and Winter semesters up until roster selection. We recommend joining us at slots to connect with the team and to train with us!
Fit Test and Roster Selection
New Dragons will be selecting a roster sometime around February – to do so, we will be conducting a Fit Test, which will help us finalize the members of our team.
Training slots are run throughout the Fall and Winter semesters at the University of Toronto Athletic Centre, and end when the roster is finalized.
The training slots are two hours long, and are composed of two components: 90 minutes dedicated to weight training, and 30 minutes dedicated to cardio.
Each training slot is run by veteran members of the team – regardless of your experience in the gym, our trainers will ensure that you can make the most out of your workout. Our trainers will be waiting on the second floor of the Athletic Centre near the elevators, 10 minutes before their slot begins.
On Saturday mornings, the team comes together to train, typically outdoors in Queen’s Park, if the weather allows it. Like regular training slots, our trainers will be waiting 10 minutes before the slot begins, but will instead be waiting in the Clara Benson Building outside of the Athletic Centre.
We recommend joining us for Saturday practices as well as for at least one training slot during the rest of the week – this allows us to get to know you, and to keep up on your training and development. Remember to talk to a trainer after each slot so we can record your attendance!
What If I Don't Study at the University of Toronto?
If you don’t study at the University of Toronto, then things are a bit different for you. The cost of membership at the Athletic Centre and distance from campus are both barriers for people studying at other universities. Understandably, you may not be able to attend many, if any of our training slots. However, we still want you to try out! Make sure to contact our Training Directors and let them know that you attend a different university – we’ll provide you with our recommended training regimen and ensure that you’re just as prepared for our fitness evaluations as anyone here on campus!
You can contact our Training Directors through the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Fit Test and Roster Selection
In order to track the progress and development of our recruits, we run fitness evaluations throughout the season. The Fit Tests assess various components, and is intended to provide an accurate representation of your general fitness level.
Later on in the season, tentatively around February, these Fit Tests will help us make decisions about our roster, which will be announced after finalization.
More details about our Fit Tests will be released during the season. In the meantime, join our mailing list and make sure to come to our training slots when you can to best prepare for testing!
