USW Sport Park is a state-of-the-art coaching and performance development centre located a few miles away from the Treforest Campus. It is set over 30-acres of playing fields, including full size rugby pitches and a notational analysis suite. Our new facilities are specially designed for sporting performance focusing on football and rugby coaching.
The new strength and conditioning facilities include a 12 lifting platform suite that will fit an entire rugby or football squad in for training together, and up to 48 students at a time. Very few universities have facilities like this. The floor is integrated with the platforms so that it can support the heavy weights our athletes will be using. We have developed this room due to our strong focus on strength and conditioning.
This room, as well as our new indoor football pitch, will also be used by the touring national squads for Autumn Internationals over the coming years. The pitch is also installed with shock pads underneath to allow use for indoor rugby training sessions, and is built to World Rugby Twenty Two standards.
