Our club was formed in 1974 playing as Currumbin Juniors. The club colours were red and white (as Palm Beach Currumbin High School is today). We moved to the Tugun seniors fields in the early 1980’s and became Currumbin-Tugun Juniors and adopted a Blue & White playing strip.
However, with the growth of the Currumbin area as well as the desire to play Friday night games, we once again relocated to our present location at Galleon Way, Currumbin Waters in 1986. It was with the assistance of a council loan towards our lights and establishing a small clubhouse that our club really came in to its own.
During the 1998/1999 period we extended our clubhouse with government grants (not to mention the help from many of the families associated with our club). Lights were installed for our second international field. This allowed us to have the Seagulls (for a short time) help us to establish our Seniors and provide more Friday night games and Sunday games for seniors. In 2006 we began to field an Under 19’s side as well as A Grade and Reserves using our fields for their home games. In the 2007 season we had over 500 registered players.
2011 saw the club return to its heritage by renaming to the Currumbin Eagles and changing back to the original Red & White playing colours, and now with a successful 11 years under our belt, with numerous teams qualifying for the Gold Coast JRL Finals Series during that time, we look forward to many more seasons of great football and community involvement. For the past 6 seasons the Currumbin Eagles have been in the top 3 clubs when it comes to junior player retention and consistently having more than 400 registered junior players each year.
Since the club moved to its current location at Galleon Way, Currumbin Waters, we have had considerable success on and off the field, winning numerous premierships and club championships in both Juniors and Seniors. We have seen many players progress from club football through the representative ranks on to QRL, Winfield Cup and the NRL, including players such as Ben Ikin who represented Queensland in State of Origin and Australia on many occasions. In more recent times players such as Kevin Procter, Jordan Rapana, Ryan Simpkins, Jahrome Hughes, Tom Dearden, Xavier Coates and Toby Sexton have gone on to become NRL regulars. We are sure that there will be many other success stories to come from our players in the years to come.
