WCP TALENT TEAM UPDATE

8th September 2014

The summer has been another busy period for the WCP Talent Team.  A full round of talent assessment days took place.  Across all of the six weapons we tested another 37 athletes and were impressed by the quality of the athletes attending.  They were tested across a number of key areas including within a lesson situation, in footwork and in sparring situations.  They also all had a full medical assessment, a lifestyle and commitment discussion, and went through a battery of demanding physical tests.  Congratulations go to all those athletes that went through the assessments.
