Belconnen United Sharks RLFC was established in 2016, being formerly, Belconnen United Scholars. The Sharks focus on creating a family orientated community club that coaches, managers, staff and members can come and experience local Rugby League. To congregate, network and build a great culture. The Sharks provide a club that Junior Sharks can aspire to join and continue their footy experience in a safe, friendly and knowledgeable environment. In the past 3 years, the club has recruited experienced coaches and players, which has attracted like-minded people to continue a strong, successful club for their future players.
The club currently has 3 Grades, Ladies League Tag, Reserve Grade and 1st Grade. Although currently missing a 19’s team, the Junior Sharkies are working hard and have a great bunch of talented Kids on their way! The small, but dedicated, group of volunteers make up a committee and support staff. These people are incredibly generous with their time, with each providing a different and invaluable skill set.
The RUC is a great supporter of the Sharks and together, they have built not just a commercial relationship, but a personal one as well. The RUC has hosted some great club functions, like a Hypnotist evening (hilarious!) Karaoke and the Shark’s aftergame Presentations. The club has a Phantom Race day/evening coming up on the 1st June, they are really looking forward to.
