Macquarie Scorpions tackle violence Head On The Macquarie Scorpions will be wearing their new jerseys with pride this season, as the Club is one of only two local rugby league clubs in the Newcastle and Hunter area selected to take part in the Let’s Tackle Domestic Violence programme which is run by the Department of Premier and Cabinet. The Let’s Tackle Domestic Violence programme sees selected football clubs and club member’s act as ambassadors within the local community against the act of domestic violence.

“It is a huge honour that the Macquarie Scorpions were selected to take part in the programme and it will see every club official and team member sign a code of conduct that commits to refraining from domestic violence, agree to become community role models and participate in a community education campaign and display the Tackling Domestic Violence logo on the club jersey, game programmes and supporters merchandise,’ “The 2019 season will also see us enter a team in the Newcastle Rugby League Ladies League Tag competition, which is a great initiative by the Newcastle League and one that we fully embrace as it is a great fit with our Lets Tackle Domestic Violence Program and provides opportunities for young women in our area to actively participate” said Macquarie Scorpion President Kevin Maher.

TO VALUED SPONSOR: Thank you for allowing Macquarie Scorpions Rugby League Football Club the opportunity to submit our sponsorship details to you for the upcoming 2019 season. If you are not already aware, the club has undergone a rebuilding process over the last four years and we are of the view we have achieved this with great success With a new more progressive image, the club has a forward thinking committee that is striving to gain the best for the club, the local community and our sponsors.

In 2019 we will again be involved in the very successful “Lets Tackle Domestic Violence Program” through the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet and the Department of Community Services. In 2019 we will also enter a side in the Newcastle Rugby League Ladies League Tag which we are very excited about.

In the upcoming season we intend to be a major player in the Newcastle Rugby League competition, one of our key objectives for 2019 is to build on our success from 2018 and again make the semi finals in our senior grades and hopefully win the premiership. With the quality signings we have made for 2019 we feel this is well within our reach. The club also intends to utilise its position within the local community to nurture and develop young talent from our growing junior and schoolboy clubs, so they have opportunities to play rugby league at the highest level possible in the future. A company such as yours will play a crucial role in providing much needed assistance, at the same time it is hoped we can be of benefit to your business.

This proposal will provide you with details regarding sponsorship, as well as an introduction to the club and its committee members. Should you consider that you are able to assist the club with sponsorship in any way, we would be more than pleased to discuss this aspect with you at your convenience. Yours truly, Mr Kevin Maher President
