The centre is used by various community groups and we work in partnership with a number of established users such as Wolves Ladies and Wolves in the Community. College teams play from the centre, as well as pursuing their own coaching qualifications, and external groups use the coach education suite to complete theoretical aspects along with the work they complete practically on the 3G surface.
