These are exciting times in Wales for Sports Chaplaincy where we have wonderfully seen God open many doors over the years to provide chaplaincy support to clubs across the country.

Currently we have 33 chaplains serving in rugby union, football, cricket, boxing and disability sports. This includes the Welsh National Ladies team for both football and rugby union, all the rugby union professional regions, 3 chaplains with Swansea City, plus Glamorgan County Cricket which in effect is cricket Wales! We have 3 chaplains working in disability sport who are global trailblazers for their work. We also have another 20 people waiting in the wings to take up new chaplaincy opportunities but need more who are willing to serve as chaplains, especially in disability sport.

Resources & Information

Providing Sports Chaplaincy has become an important part of our approach to equality and ethical behaviours. Aside from providing a friendly, familiar face and an open door to confidential advice and support for everyone, there have also been occasions when our Sports Chaplains have made significant and timely interventions supporting athletes, staff and wider service users through some difficult and challenging times.

Sports Chaplaincy has been of huge personal and group benefit within our female international team camp environments. The support has been provided within all our age group teams and senior squad and has proved to be extremely beneficial for players.
