Cardiff Valkyries Seeking Additional Coaches

Having grown rapidly to move from 5’s to 7’s in our second year of playing, the Valkyries are looking for additional coaches to support and maintain our growth.

About the Cardiff Valkyries

The Valkyries are a close-knit team that prides itself on maintaining a supportive and developmental culture. Our aim is to provide a supportive and developmental culture. Our aim is to provide an environment that allows each individual player to achieve their potential by helping them develop a complete, holistic understanding of the game. This will then allow them to move into other scenarios (11-a-side, regional squads or GB trials) with enhanced confidence and understanding.

While still only new, the team has already had players successfully placed onto the GB Flag squads and it is hopeful that others will soon break through to the GB Contact format as well.
