PREMIER LEAGUE MENS/WOMEN
Premier League Football
Macquarie Dragons are proud to have a squad representing the club in the NWSF Premier League Mens competition.
This competition is the elite competition in our Association and the highest level up until the NPL competitions. It comprises First Grade and Reserve Grade competitions. Our home ground is Waterloo Park, Marsfield.
The squad consists of around 35 players in order to field 2 teams each week. They train two nights per week during the normal season starting in mid January with the squad playing trial games shortly after.
Dragons have an emphasis on promoting its own young players (typically u18 & u21 players) to the top squad and the club get a great sense of pride when these young players step up full-time into our senior squad. Whilst promoting youth is our priority, any quality player can be invited to trial for the squad. These trials normally take place in December.

Every triallist is given a fair opportunity.
