BF is delighted to announce that Children’s Holiday Camp Barracudas will become an Internal Licensed Partner.

Children’s Holiday Camp Barracudas will become an Internal Licensed Partner in early 2023. BF will be supporting their ongoing delivery of fencing activities by offering Core Coach training to their staff.

James Craig, BF Commercial Director, said,

“Barracudas has been a long-standing client of BF. Each year, they have committed to 4-6 two-day courses that train up their holiday activity staff in BF’s Core Coach Award. There are two main areas that I am excited to support with our proven model, which will in turn support Barracudas with their growth plans.

Firstly, they will be able to increase the number of fencing experiences they offer. This is due to us training and licensing them to deliver our Core Coach course internally to their staff.

Secondly, they will continue to see and hear about how popular fencing is as an activity. There is a latency demand for fencing: when it is offered as an activity of choice, it is getting chosen over and over again.

Lastly, we will collaborate with Sam Curtis and his training team on content. We will be using our newly-developed Explore Fencing app – launched in partnership with our Official Technology Suppliers, Telescopic – which Barracudas can see and want to use as a valuable resource.

All Barracudas staff will have tailored content and a resource that can consistently be updated with multimedia content. This will enhance the quality of delivery that Barracudas can offer through their Core Coach training. We will be on-boarding them as a partner in February 2023, but we are already collaborating with them so that they can deliver the fencing experiences that they want to achieve.”
