The Sharks Academy is a world-class rugby academy which is accredited by SA Rugby and backed by a strategic partnership with the Sharks, arguably the most professional rugby union in South Africa. It offers a variety of courses designed for young male and female school leavers with a passion for rugby and soccer, and who have a desire to forge a career in sport. Our brief was to development a website and an online, responsive student app and player management portal for the Academy.

About the
website

We were tasked to create an informative website that was easily recognizable as part of The Sharks brand. The website highlights some notable past students who have gone on to achieve great heights within the sporting industry. On the site we take an in-depth look at their academic programme and various courses on offer. Their annual training camp is also highlighted as this event is well attended by prospective students from all over the world.

About the
App

The slick new system allows the Sharks Training Academy to quickly and easily upload any content for the portal on the fly – whenever from wherever! Students can now register 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year, all from the convenience of their smartphone or computer. The Academy is also receiving more applications from international students due to the lack of physical paperwork required and the fact that the process has been digitized. Administrational staff spend less time on “paperwork” as everything is digitized and the load is shared amongst coaches and mentors, who in turn develop schedules and mark attendance for their players, whereas this was originally taken manually. Attendance is now a one step process thus dramatically minimizing the amount of admin.
