About Our Club

The North Lakes Leopards are a community based rugby union club, based at Woodside Sporting Complex, on the Cnr of Discovery Drive and Gardenia Place, North Lakes; taking in the catchment area that covers suburbs of North Lakes, Mango Hill, Kallangur, Murrumba Downs and their surrounds.

We are currently fielding junior teams in Brisbane Junior Rugby Union competition and senior men’s team in the Queensland Suburban Rugby Union Competition.

As one of the oldest sporting clubs within the North Lakes community we pride ourselves on club and team spirit, physical fitness, participation, fun and enjoyment.

Our History & Philosophy

Established in 2004, the North Lakes Leopards Junior Rugby Union Club (NLLJRUCI) was set up to cater for boys and girls aged 5 – 17 who have a general interest in the sport of rugby. As of 2017 we have secured our permanent base at Woodside Sports Complex, North Lakes. In 2019 we launched our first ever North Lakes Leopards Senior Men’s Team into the Queensland Suburban Rugby Union Competition.

The management of the North Lakes Leopards Rugby Club is guided by the following principals which are enshrined in our ‘Rules of Association’;

  • To foster and deliver junior rugby union in the North Lakes and surrounding areas.
  • To promote and encourage the playing of junior rugby union and to promote and develop the necessary skills of the game and a sense of sportsmanship and fair play
  • To provide a supportive, enjoyable and safe environment for our members.

To foster junior rugby union player pathways to senior rugby union in the North Lakes area

Our Volunteers

Our wonderful volunteers are what makes The North Lakes Leopards a great club. Not just our players, but also the Mums and Dads, coaches, managers and supporters too.

It sometimes takes a small army of volunteers to run the club, so we are always looking for people to join our volunteer ranks.

If you would like to volunteer with The North Lakes Leopards, please one of the committee members (details above) and let us know how or where you would like to help.
