There are many ways to get involved:

Turn up by yourself
Everyone is welcome to come along and join in the league. Anyone who comes along will be put in a team with a mixture of beginners and experienced players.

Enter a team
Playing Korfball is a great team building exercise. If you are a company or group of friends who are interested in playing you will be allocated an experienced player to help your team and give you an idea of the rules and tactics.
Rolling subs are allowed so it is suggested that teams have at least three boys and three girls.

Be part of a team
If you have friends who play Korfball join with them for an enjoyable summer of exercise and socialising.

National champions appoint welsh international as new coach

Filed under: News — admin at 11:53 pm on Monday, August 26, 2013

Regional and national champions Cardiff City Korfball Club have appointed welsh international James Wilcox as its club coach for the 2013/14 season.

James, a BKA Level 2 qualified coach brings a wealth of experience to the club from both the coaching and playing aspects of the sport. As a coach he has been actively involved in coaching the Welsh Development Squad and the Welsh Inter area teams. As a player James has been a member of the British Student Korfball Squad and Welsh Korfball Squad as well as captaining Cardiff University to fourth at last season’s BUCS national championships.

Cardiff City Chair Stuart Wood said, “We as a club have been without a recognised coach for a couple of seasons, relying on the skills and experience of senior squad members to run sessions and manage teams.

“Although this has been successful in terms of winning the South Wales and West Regional league and the Welsh Korfball league, we felt the time was right to appoint a recognised coach to develop the whole club.

“James is an excellent appointment and I am really excited to have him start and put us all through our paces!”

As well as a new coach, Cardiff City have also sourced a new training venue – Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Glantaf in Llandaff North.

Anyone interested in joining Cardiff City should contact secretary@cardiffkorfball.co.uk or come along to the first training session 7Pm, Wednesday 4th September.
