Community Initiatives

Micah Projects Christmas Hampers

Each year, Micah projects provide Christmas Hampers for individuals and families who are marginalised and facing adversity and poverty across Brisbane. The challenges of living below the poverty line are often felt most over the Christmas period, as people try to pay bills and have money to celebrate with their families. Souths are proud to be involved in this cause by offering up our clubhouse as a hub to pack these hampers for distribution to those less fortunate and struggling in the community.

We are proud to support Micah Projects as one of our Community Partners.

Small Steps 4 Hannah Jersey Auction

Our Ladies Day Pink Jersey Auction showed a heartwarming display of generosity and sportsmanship and was an amazing success, raising much-needed funds for Small Steps 4 Hannah - a foundation very close to our hearts. Our senior team proudly wore our special ‘Pink Jerseys’ which were auctioned off via a live Auction, with all the proceeds donated to Small Steps 4 Hannah, our proud community partner. Beyond the monetary achievement, this jersey auction served as a reminder of how we all need to contribute to raising awareness and identifying coercive control behaviours and H.A.L.T the cycle of domestic and family violence.

We were honoured to present Sue and Lloyd with a cheque on behalf of the club reflecting the unwavering support of our successful bidders.

Participating in McHappy Day 

The Magpies are proud to support McDonald’s in their McHappy Day initiative in raising funds for charity partner Ronald McDonald House Charities Southeast Queensland. The club is excited to get involved by sending players to McDonald’s stores and having them promote McHappy day amongst the local community. $2 from every Big Mac purchase on McHappy Day goes to Ronald McDonald House and the Magpies couldn’t be prouder to get involved with this cause.

RISE Program

As part of our ongoing commitment to the Junior Development of both boys and girls throughout our corridor. RISE is a program initiated for the development of existing registered junior Rugby League Players, u14-17 females and u12-15 males, running in multiple locations across South-East Queensland, Central Queensland, North Queensland, Darwin, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide. RISE offers the opportunity to develop this age group of players with specialised training and a chance to participate in a weekend carnival at the end of the program.

Offering this program to these children provides access to the future pathways, Souths Logan Magpies offers and the opportunity to develop and foster life skills through the use of sport, evolving knowledge and skills that form positive lifelong habits.

Indigenous Program

Souths Logan Magpies has long been recognised as a major participator in Indigenous sport and welfare. As custodians of Jagera and Turrbal lands, throughout our proud history we have been recognised as a valuable community partner and have proactively sought to participate in numerous indigenous events and engagement opportunities including:

  • SLM was a foundation club with Northern Price of the Country initiative to play games to date in Indigenous communities, creating greater awareness, engagement and inclusiveness.
  • Hosting junior development days each year in indigenous communities as part of QRL Country Week.
  • Providing the platform for proud Indigenous men and women to continue to participate through sports by engaging community leaders’ post-retirement, as role models to Indigenous youth.

With many young Indigenous children in our development corridor, we recognise the importance of supporting and educating indigenous community members in the areas of health, wellbeing, lifestyle and engagement.

Wellbeing, Diversity and Inclusion

Development and Wellbeing

Whilst the Souths Logan Magpies are recognised the competition leader in junior development across all ages in both male and female game, we also take the education and wellbeing of our players and staff very seriously. As part of our charter, we have full-time employees, who in conjunction with support staff and affiliated services, balance the requirements of all our junior registered in all aspects of their lives.

Our plan is to continue to expand our reach through our affiliated partners to provide greater support to the communities within our catchment.

Diversity and Inclusion

We at the Souths Logan Magpies aim to foster a community of players, partners, match officials and administration staff who promote the standards of understanding, inclusivity, respect and equality both on and off the field. We acknowledge the strengths that our differences as individuals can bring to better the great game of Rugby League and the role that sport plays in creating a sense of belonging for all individuals. The respect, understanding and welfare of our team across all aspects of the business is at the utmost priority in all that we do. At the Souths Logan Magpies, we are committed to modelling diversity and inclusion in Rugby League as we recognise it as one of our greatest advantages as a sporting organisation to continue to innovate and drive us forward into the future.
