ADP Athlete Education & Resources

The following documents are provided to help you build on your existing training and challenge you to achieve your best.

It is expected that athletes wishing to represent GBR at Junior and Cadet level have an active Athlete Profile which includes information on training, competition and target goals. Some may include development actions to guide areas of improvement in the fencer’s development and provide indicators of improvement taking place.

Information in these profiles will be used in consideration of discretionary cases and also to support the selection of athletes being put forward for any external grant/funding.

Below is an example of an Athlete Profile:

The Fight Analysis document below is a simple spreadsheet allowing the fencer to capture their results after a competition. It should be used by fencers to review their competitions, recognise what has gone well and to identify where improvement can be made in their future performances. It also provides a guide in when to select more challenging competitions:

The purpose of the return to training protocol below is to assess the fencer’s athletic readiness to return to fencing-specific training, and if required, to design a progressive training programme on their return to training:
