The Manchester Metropolitan University Cluster for Research into Coaching (CRiC) was established in late 2012 in order to encourage, enable, and disseminate research into sports coaching among academics and practitioners.

CRiC draws on the expertise of MMU academics working in coaching pedagogy, coach education, the sociology of coaching, and performance analysis coaching in order to stimulate and support a sports coaching community. The Cluster aims to generate critical approaches to coaching, to establish a repository for the outcomes of coaching research, and to provide opportunities and encouragement to early career and postgraduate researchers.

A significant focus of CRiC's work is to support and advise coaching practitioners and coaching associations in all sports and related activities. In addition, CRiC organises a bi-annual coaching conference in concert with Cardiff Metropolitan University and the University of Worchester.
