Club vision, values and mission
The Mernda Dragons club committee is committed to creating an environment and family atmosphere at the club in which the parents are comfortable and assured that their children are being provided with the best possible start to their child’s league career.
The club is driven to provide a positive learning environment for all players and coaches and this begins with the indoctrination of the Dragons Club Values
The Dragons Values are the foundation blocks for our players and volunteers and provide the outline for creating a culture at the club that allows, in its finality, players to reach their potential.
With the Club Values as our base and through the implementation of the club coaching curriculum the Dragons provide the required direction and support for volunteer personal development to occur that is then passed onto our players.
Responsible – Be accountable for your actions, represent us with pride
Honest – Always be truthful, never cheat or lie
Respectful – To players, coaches, administrators, parents & referees
Safe – Play to not cause harm, injury or damage
Team Player – No one person is greater than the team
The Dragons are a rugby league club that is united in its direction and a club that takes a strong stance on spectator, coach and player discipline. For all players and coaches to prosper this stance is a non-negotiable aspect of our Club strategy and is also another factor why we feel our club was runner up in the Spirit of League awards in our first season!
Moving forward, the club will continue its strong investment in volunteer education, ultimately, providing the best resource for player development.
The club will continue to be innovative and expand to cater for growth, however, our core business of providing a positive learning environment for coaches and players will always remain our major priority.
