Research and Networking Opportunities like never before

The Cluster for Research into Coaching (CRiC) was formed at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2010 under the leadership of Professor Dave Day and Dr Bill Taylor with aim of developing critical coaching scholarship in the fields of pedagogy, sociology, history and law. CRiC has become known as the leading research group in the UK concerned with the sociology, pedagogy, history and ethics of sports coaching. CRiC has an emerging international reputation in these areas and will seek to continue to grow in influence and reputation.
