Who are the Sharks

Welcome to the home of the Oregon Sharks Rugby Academy. The Oregon Sharks is a collection of athletes (18+) with roots across the globe including Africa, North America, Central America, Micronesia, and Polynesia but proud to call the greater Willamette Area home.

While the notion of people from diverse backgrounds working towards a greater good is a concept that helped shape our great nation, we believe the time has come to show the world that diversity is a concept with bite… and essential to our common welfare. Our goal is simple: to dominate the competition, show the world that diversity is power, and #ruckracism.

Mission Statement:

To provide opportunities to diversity through sport; to foster the values of inclusiveness and integrity in our club and communities; to help individuals develop healthy physical and mental lifestyle choices; and to promote athletic and professional development through rugby.

The Development side is our best team for in state play. We will have players that are just out of high school and still in college to get a lot of reps and experience before making the Premier side. This group of young men will play teams in the PNW like WAC, Ronins, ORSU, Tacoma, Valley and many more. PNRFU tournaments are listed in our calendar (dates may changed).
