The St George Illawarra Dragons are kicking off school holiday celebrations today, holding the first of two clinics for primary school children.

Players will swap the training paddock for the coach’s clipboard, giving pointers to the next generation of rugby league stars.

After completing a number of stations designed to teach the different skills of the game, the children will have the chance to get autographs and photos with their heroes.

Several NRL stars are in attendance, including captain Ben Creagh and representative players Matt Cooper, Nathan Fien and Bronson Harrison.

Our mobile reporter Janai Velez is live blogging from the event.
