GOLDING TO ATTEND FIE TRAINING COURSE
National Academy coach Glen Golding heads to Budapest for FIE training
British Fencing have selected Glen Golding to attend a two week coaching course run by the FIE in Budapest. All 450 registered coaches were approached and asked to submit their applications from which Golding was selected. He was seen as the ideal candidate because of the international success of some of the junior athletes who have come through his stable and his position as a National Academy coach.
Just twenty-five coaches from around the world will attend this course which will take place from 25th May to 9th June. The invitation for this “mid-high level” course came directly from the FIE’s Technical Director, Ioan Popp.
On his return Golding will give a presentation at the British & England Fencing Club Coach and Volunteer conference next year about his experience for the benefit of any coach in the UK. Speaking ahead of his departure, Golding said; “It’s an honour to be selected to attend this course. I believe it will be great for my own development but I also intend to share the knowledge I gain with any other UK coach.”
