Dale Robinson will not only go around again as the VFLW Head Coach for the Southern Saints in 2022, but work with the St Kilda youth as the club’s AFLW Development Coach.

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.

Following the Saints' remodelled coaching line-up, Robinson will play a supporting role to Head of Player Development & Strategy Paddy Hill and Development Coach/Player Mentor Nicole Callinan in building up St Kilda's young core.

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.

She will also continue in her role as Head Coach of the Southern Saints as she looks to develop the next generation of young Saints.
