Diversity & Inclusion
Girls Tackle Rugby
A programme born at the same time as the Sale Sharks Women team, Girls Tackle Rugby is designed to get as many girls as possible playing and enjoying the sport.
If you can see it, you can achieve it. This is all about creating genuine opportunities for young girls in the North West.
Our walking rugby sessions are a less physical version of touch rugby, perfect for people aged 50 years and older who can’t play contact rugby anymore. It’s also a great way of easing yourself into the sport if you haven’t played before.
Rugby In The Park
Rugby in the Park is our preventative anti-social behaviour project which works with young people across the North-West. Working with the community alongside local police forces, we reach out to the members of our family that need it most.
We’re here to support people through the good times, and the tough times. Sharks Forces helps over a 100 veterans annually through a number of fantastic activities, and love that we are able to give back and support the veterans and serving personnel in our community.
Disability & Inclusive Tag Rugby
We want everyone to have the opportunity to get involved with our game, and to build key skills such as confidence & resilience whilst improving mental wellbeing. Our non-contact, tag rugby sessions provide the perfect platform to build these skills alongside our sport.
Mental Wellbeing Programmes
We run three wellbeing programme to support mental health in our community. Designed for the younger members of the Sharks family, we tackle the world of mental health and help children navigate the difficult subject of mental wellbeing. Our brilliant coaches here at Sharks are on hand to support, using the game of rugby as a vehicle for positive mental wellbeing at home, at school in every day life.
Project rugby is an amazing project which opens up rugby to underrepresented groups such as disabled, minority ethnic people and lower socio economic backgrounds. In partnership with Premiership Rugby, we are making sure that everyone feels welcome in the Sharks Family and the wider world of rugby.
