Player Appearance and Donation Request Form

Player Appearance and Donation Request Form

Sharks Have Heart has standard donation and player appearance policies which seek to provide a fair and equitable opportunity to access Sharks players.

We kindly ask that you please follow the correct procedures when asking for assistance as outlined under the Community Requests tab.

To find out more about our Player Appearance and Donation Policy please CLICK HERE.

All requests must be received at least six weeks prior to the event and most requests will be responded to in writing, whether successful or not.

Due to the high level of corporate commitments, together with our own Sharks Have Heart community programs and the players' strict training schedule, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate your appearance request.

Our club will make the final decision in relation to which player, if successful, will attend your appearance. We recommend that your event does not focus purely on the anticipation of a player appearance, instead the player appearance should be approached as an added bonus to your event or program due to the dynamics of the football training schedule. Additionally: 

  • We will NOT engage in any personal appearances, e.g. birthdays, weddings, etc.
  • The name of the player will NOT be provided or made public until the day of an approved request.
  • Appearance requests are to be kept to a maximum of one hour.
  • No athletic functions with risk of injury will be considered.
  • Video messages for birthdays, weddings etc will not be accepted due to the high volume of requests received.
  • Sharks player appearances are an endorsement to a community service, or are Sharks partner related. 

We do not fulfil requests that are not focused around fundraising or supporting a community based NFP organisation. Priority will be given to our own Sharks Have Heart Programs, community and sporting partners of the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks RLFC. 

If your request meets our guidelines, click here to lodge a formal application.
