The Sandringham Dragons are an Australian rules football club playing in the TAC Cup, an under-18 competition in Victoria, Australia. They are based at the Trevor Barker Oval in Sandringham, Victoria, representing the southern suburban area of Melbourne. The Dragons were one of the founding metropolitan clubs of the TAC Cup in 1992 as part of a plan by the AFL to replace the traditional club zones with independent junior clubs.[1] This was to help aid in player development and the process of the AFL draft.

The club was originally name the Central Dragons and played out of Toorak Oval in Prahran, Victoria . In 1995 the name of the club was changed to Prahran Dragons to better reflect the locality of the team. In 2000 they relocated to the Trevor Barker oval in Sandringham an thus changed their name for the new locality.
