Why Study Sports Coaching with us?

Our Warrington Campus is a unique place to study for your Foundation degree, and is the full-time training base for the Warrington Wolves Super rugby league team. This provides an opportunity to gain genuine insight and experience of a professional sports environment. We also have excellent links with many other local partners.

The course recognises the need to be qualified in order to obtain work-related opportunities, and you will be prepared for professional recognition by 1st4sport. If you already possess relevant awards and have appropriate experience, you may be able to select modules that develop your broader management knowledge and skills.

We also currently provide students with the opportunity to acquire a Level 1 coaching award and attend three Sports Coach UK (SCUK) workshops at no extra cost.
