Outdoor training

Filed under: News — admin at 2:20 pm on Saturday, June 28, 2014

Summer has arrived and Cardiff City will be training on Roath Rec Wednesday evenings between 1845 and 2015.

If you’ve seen Korfball on BBC Get Inspired summer is a great time to give the sport a try. New players and beginners welcome, we are a friendly bunch so come and say hello . Just look for a Korfball post (the one with a yellow basket on the top).

If it’s raining, it’ll be a bit slippy to train we’ll go for a social drink instead on Wellfield Road. Check Twitter for details.

Look forward to seeing you there.

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.

City end the season on a high

Filed under: News — AidanDickson at 8:58 pm on Tuesday, April 30, 2013

The 2012/13 league season has come to an end with both City teams riding high with victories in the end of season gala day at Glamorgan Sport Park.
Cardiff City second team “the Mavericks” started their celebrations with a resounding 22-11 win over Cardiff Dragons 2. But for two unfortunate forfeits earlier in the year this win would have seen them second in the league behind the mighty City 1 Cyclones.
Only an hour later the Cyclones faced Cardiff Uni’s formidable first team. The Cyclone’s game started with a crisis of confidence, due to a lack of the usual regulars, however substitutes called up from the Mavericks team (and still buoyed up by their earlier victory) soon showed that City are a force to be reckoned with at all levels, with a solid 24-17 victory.
All in all it was a great day of Korfball in Cardiff, with fantastic results for City and a highly respectable fight put up by opponents Cardiff Uni and Dragons. City followed the matches with a celebratory night out in Cwtch and Pizza Express in Cardiff Bay, bringing a fine end to the day. Bring on the next season!
