Sharks Football

What football is on offer for Sharks Members?

We try and provide as much football for our club members as possible to maintain our belief that inclusion is key to development.

While the club holds its own leagues and tournaments we also participate in nationally organised events and leagues also.

We hold a main mixed gender training session every Tuesday night to help our members maintain and improve their skills and learn the fundamental basics of the sport. We also hold some Womens and Mens only training session on Thursday nights when we believe there may be a specific benefit to that squad.

Saturdays are generally reserved for Game days but when there isnt a game day scheduled we will likley have a mixed gender training session planned.

Below is a brief outline of what we offer as a club in terms of games you can participate in, we hold Football Games and Events from January through to the end of October so we will always have something to participate in.
