John Smit and Jake White have added a third, vital, member to their dream team by confirming that Dr Sherylle Calder has signed a two-year contract to consult to the Sharks as a Visual Skills and Performance Specialist.
Dr Calder worked closely with White as part of his team when he, along with Smit, lead the Springboks to World Cup glory in 2007. As a huge admirer of her work, having seen first-hand how players respond to her methods and programs, White will be hugely pleased with this result.
He told the Sharks website that “Sherylle will be helping us with Eyegym to improve peripheral vision and awareness. 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.”
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.”Tweet
