The St George Illawarra Dragons are committed to an ongoing relationship with the NRL and in particular the eight local NRL developments officers within the Dragons catchment to provide local schools, local clubs, and community organisations an opportunity to experience rugby league and what it has to offer both on and off the field.

The Dragons proudly boast 35 junior rugby league clubs within our region (St George JRL, Illawarra JRL and South Coast Group 7 JRL) with a number of current NRL & NRLW squad members coming directly through this local pathway.
