Local Cronulla resident Yvette Parker - alike the 9,999 who went before her - signed up to become a Sharks Member last week, unknowing of the fanfare that would follow.

"It's awesome, I can't describe it," she said. "Ten thousand people (have become Members)... I can't wait for the season to begin."

Parker was invited to Sharks training on Monday to see the squad go about their preparations for their Round 1 clash with the Cowboys.

Not only was she a witness to her favourite players in action, Parker was snapped by local news outlet, the Leader, who today ran a feature article on the milestone Member.

Excited by the side's prosepcts in 2016, Parker says she's confident of the side's chances this season.
