Off the field, the club has an enviable culture, strong corporate structure, and committee in place to take us well into the future. Opened in June 2016 the South Cairns Sports Club was established with in excess of 10,000 club members. Constructed in partnership with AFL Cairns and Cazaly's - the new social club is the largest development seen on the Southside of Cairns in over 10 years. The social club includes restaurant, bar, TAB, KENO, and gaming facilities in 2011, aware of our social obligations and desire to commemorate the passing of one of our players - Kris Seivers - the football club dedicated a portion of the days proceeds to a chosen charity. Over $60,000 has been raised since then to support such worthwhile causes including Beyond Blue, Breast Cancer Awareness, Harald's House, and Give 5 for Kids, and the Declan Crouch Foundation, KICK ON, Wheels of Wellness.
