The Athlete Development Programme

The BF Athlete Development Programme is a six weapon programme that exists to support athletes in achieving Olympic success and inspiring others. 

It covers athletes from age 15 to 35 (and beyond for those performing at Olympic level) who are moving through a defined development pathway to success at the highest level of fencing.
