After taking the reins as VFLW Head Coach for the Southern Saints in 2021, Dale Robinson will continue her involvement with St Kilda's AFLW program as Development Coach in 2022.

The highly respected leader led the Southern Saints to its second finals appearance in 2021, progressing through to the semi-finals after winning four of its last six games to squeeze into the top-six.

Anyone who knows Dale knows of her commitment and drive to get the best out of every player under her care.

As part of the Saints' remodelled coaching line-up for 2022, Robinson will work alongside Head of Player Development & Strategy Paddy Hill and Development Coach/Player Mentor Nicole Callinan in building up St Kilda's young core.

Her involvement with St Kilda's AFLW side will remain the same once the 2022 VFLW Season commences.

Robinson formed part of the Southern Saints' inaugural coaching panel in 2017 as a senior assistant. She previously held roles at the VU Western Spurs and Western Bulldogs following her decorated playing and umpiring career.
