Kate Da Costa
Director of Faculty
Kate returned to CRC in September 2000 after being a student on the Uniformed Services course in 1996. In between she travelled to Canada and spent time teaching and coaching high school football. She enjoyed it so much that on returning to the UK looked into both teaching and coaching as a career and managed to merge the two in working at CRC. She gained her teaching qualification and started up the coaching ladder as well as studying sports injuries and massage. She played football for West Ham Ladies F.C. from 2000-2006 and went back to coach the team in 2010 whilst studying for her UEFA A Licence which she gained in 2014 as only the 23rd female in the country to achieve the qualification.
Kate’s main specialist area is coaching and has coached at the Cambridge Girls Centre of Excellence as well as at West Ham Ladies. She is also a tutor for the FA running both Level 1 coaching courses and Emergency Aid courses. Her other specialism is sports injuries and she is the sports therapist at Soham F.C.
Kate is the Director of Faculty for Sport and Uniformed Public Services, one of the largest and fastest growing Faculties in the college.
