Cardiff Met Coaches

Club Coaches


We are very proud and fortunate to have a network of highly experienced coaches working with Cardiff Met students. Feel free to contact them and start a coach-athlete partnership.

All coaches are happy to be contacted if you are looking for a training group, but please be aware that our coaches are volunteers and may already have other commitments.
