The Sandringham Dragons were one of the founding six teams of the TAC Cup in 1992. Back then the Dragons were known as the Central Dragons, with the other 5 teams being the Southern Stingrays (now known as the the Dandenong Stingrays), Eastern Ranges, Northern Knights, Western Jets and the Geelong Falcons. The first year saw the Dragons finish in last place.
The following year saw another four teams introduced to the TAC Cup; Bendigo Pioneers, Gippsland Power, Murray Bushrangers and the North Ballarat Rebels.
In 1995 with the introduction of another two teams, Calder Cannons and the Oakleigh Chargers, the Dragons were renamed the Prahran Dragons. It would still take another 4 years before the Dragons would win their first TAC Cup premiership. The Dragons recorded a 50 point win over the Gippsland Power in the grand final, with the captain of the Dragons, Dylan Smith, named best on ground.
After the breakthrough premiership, the Prahran Dragons were renamed to the Sandringham Dragons for the 2000 season. A few lean years followed, cuminating in finishing last in the 2007 and 2009 seasons. But success followed these times in 2011 with the Dragons second TAC Cup. After finishing in second position at the end of the season the Dragons were able to win the grand final with a tight come from behind win against the Oakleigh Chargers.
2016 saw the Dragons claim their third TAC Cup premiership having to win every game through the finals series after finishing 5th. They met the Murray Bushrangers and after the Bushies took the lead in the final quarter the Dragons were able to kick the last three goals to claim the TAC Cup by 17 points.
