*Coaches, please note the new online coach register is now in place. This page will be archived. Please ensure you have followed the instructions to appear on the new register. More info here.*

British Fencing operates a register of coaches. This is designed to ensure that the quality and integrity of our coaches and of our coach education system is maintained at a high standard.

The register is published once a month. This allows schools, clubs, companies, etc. wishing to employ a coach to check their credentials prior to confirming employment. The register is shown in two ways below by Names and by Counties.

Each list will show those coaches that are compliant and meet the criteria, those coaches that have a criterion recently expired a non-conformity and those coaches that have criteria that have expired beyond 3 months, non-compliant.

Please send any updates to the email.

The BF Coach Register will be moving more towards a recognised professional membership for coaches. Being a registered coach ensures that a coach is qualified, insured and meets safe to practice standards.

A fencing qualification indicates the coach has undertaken formally assessed training.  This would provide a guide on the competence the coach has demonstrated, and therefore what and where they can coach.

All coaches displayed on this register have agreed to a code of conduct and are committed to delivering Fencing to people of all ages and from all backgrounds including disability, faith, gender identity, race, sex, and sexual orientation.

All potential employers should undertake safe recruitment practices in employing and deployment of coaches.
