Sherylle Calder, the world-renowned visual skills and performance Specialist, has joined the Sharks as a consultant on a two-year contract.

The move means she will re-join Jake White, after they formed part of the Springbok coaching staff that won the 2007 World Cup.

Another member of that succesful team is current Sharks CEO John Smit, who captained the Boks to glory in France in 2007.

Having assisted many athletes and leading international sporting teams, including the Springboks during White’s successful tenure, she brings a unique perspective to the field of visual motor performance - blending her knowledge of being an athlete, coach and a clinician.

"Sherylle will be helping us with Eyegym to improve peripheral vision and awareness," the Sharks Director of Rugby Jake White said.

"She will also be assisting the kickers, which is a massive boost for us, as well as the youngsters in the Sharks Academy who will be able to learn a top range of skills from one of the best in the business.

"My association with Sherylle dates back to my earlier coach roles and I look forward to working with her again."

Sharks CEO John Smit added: “I would like to welcome Sherylle to the Sharks family. She is a leader in her field and her expertise and experience will be invaluable to the team’s ambitions going forward.”
