Personal Coaches

If you wish to apply to attend in the capacity of a personal coach you must register in advance with BF. To apply Click Here 

Please Note: As there is a staff allocation that is less than the number of fencers attending we are unable to guarantee accreditation for all personal coaches. The personal coach allocation is split 50/50 between cadet and junior. Priority will be given to coaches who have already travelled this season with their athletes. Due to covid regulations, we are expecting less accreditations to be issued to each nation to reduce the number of people attending the events.

  1. Coaches are up to date on the coach register
  2. If the fencers’ personal coaches have met the qualification standard for selection
  3. Coaches have consistently demonstrated suitable coaching behaviours and are not currently being investigated.
  4. Fencers selection place is the first four selections.

If you have any questions relating to this post, please submit them to us via the form here and a member of the ADP team will come back to you.
