Cronulla Sharks backrower Wade Graham has urged would-be Sharkcrew volunteers to take the steps to make it happen ahead of what promises to be a busy, but exciting, 2016 NRL season.
Signing on with the Sharks as a fresh-faced 21-year-old back in 2011, Graham has seen many changes at the Club in recent times, but one thing still remains - the hardy support of the Cronulla fan base.
"I've been at the Sharks for a number of years now and, this group, there's always the familiar faces. They always come up to say hello, they love the Club, it's a real good feeling," Graham said.
At the Club's recent BBQ to say 'thank you' to the 2015 Crew, Graham spent time mixing and chatting with the group, sharing a meal and listening to the stories of the hard-working volunteers.
"I know this is a real tight Crew down here, they always get to most games - definitely the home games," Graham said.
"But It's good to get to see them and to get to interact on a more personal level."
With an ability to work well with others, Sharkcrew members are being recruited to fill a variety of roles with the initial intake of volunteers to have a game day focus around their activities.
Sharkcrew members will provide assistance with entertainment, community activations, ‘money can’t buy’ experiences, front entrance greetings and collateral handouts, as well as helping with other game day tasks in and around Shark Park.
For their time and effort Shark Crew volunteers will receive a dedicated polo shirt and jacket, two tickets for each home game, a 20 per cent discount on Sharks Shop merchandise and a full squad Shark Crew ‘thank you’ barbeque at season’s end.
