A centre of sporting excellence opened at the site in January 2011 by First Minister Carwyn Jones and Wales football manager Gary Speed. The Sport and Exercise Medicine Centre provides elite facilities for students, athletes and the wider public. There are sports medicine and physiotherapy professionals located on-site with services available not only to performance level athletes, but also the general public. The sports medicine practitioners can work with athletes and players to identify potential injury risk and therefore work to prevent injuries from occurring. The centre also boasts renowned sports psychologists, offering a range of individual or group sessions to help athletes enhance performance.[1]
