Community and High Performance Centre

The St George Illawarra Dragons' Community and High Performance Centre (CHPC) will be an industry-leading, high-performance training and administration facility that will help create a significant legacy for the community.

The CHPC will allow the Dragons' five-plus existing facilities to come together under one roof at the University of Wollongong's (UOW) Innovation Campus and allow for a crosspollination of the club's elite and junior representative pathway programs.

The Dragons' ambition is to create a world class precinct and facility that:

  1. Delivers high performance, administration and community facilities for elite, pathways and community programs;
  2. Enhances the partnership with UOW across education, research and innovation;
  3. Harnesses the power of sport to expand health and wellbeing programs and other initiatives, and;
  4. Deepens community engagement and connection through partnerships, programs, collaboration and learning.

The Community and High-Performance Centre will include:

  • Equitable male and female player facilities
  • Aquatic recovery, medical and treatment facilities
  • High-performance gym, hydration and sport science areas
  • Two full-sized NRL playing fields
  • Lecture theatre and meeting rooms
  • Community classroom and program spaces including internal 'grandstand'
  • Office space for football, community and administration staff
  • Communal dining/function room and lounge
  • Office space for community partners
  • UOW research collaboration space
  • Allied Health area
