Excellence Discipline: Girls Rugby League

The Marsden State High School Girls Rugby League and Touch Football Excellence program provides young woman the superior opportunities to develop their skills in both codes of football. 

Superior Opportunities

Within the program, girls are provided with opportunities to participate in elite level competitions across South East Queensland including the Karen Murphy Cup and Broncos Cup where Marsden has had successful campaigns since the competition inception. Our Excellence students are also provided with the option of participating in the Schools Touch League and Queensland All Schools Touch Football competitions. Girls within our program also have the opportunity to advance their representative selections through Logan District, Metropolitan East and Queensland trials within both codes.  An individualised strength and conditioning program allows our girls to develop speed and strength, fitness elements which are transferrable to both rugby league and touch football.  Support is offered to girls within our program through the dedicated coaching staff, along with the student – led #MTC Program, an award winning mental health program designed to provide strategies for our students to be successful at home, in the classroom and on the sporting field. Throughout their senior years, girls within our program also have the opportunity to attain their Certificate III in Fitness, a qualification that is well regarded within the community and enabling the girls to have a successful transition to work or tertiary education.

Community Partnerships

Our senior students also support students within our local schools, running the #MTC Cup, a competition dedicated to providing access to touch football for primary aged students in our local area. A developing relationship between Souths Logan Rugby League, along with our local junior clubs will continue to see growth and development of the girls within our program.

Pride, Passion, Persistence and Pathway Development

The Girls Rugby League and Touch Football Excellence program develops young ladies who are passionate about their sport and education, show pride in themselves, their school and their performances and are persistent in developing their skills and leading change within their program and the local community.​
