My Coaching Philosophy
My idea is that ultimately it isn’t really about winning, it’s about the ‘athlete’s journey’, the athlete has a path in front of them and some sort of dream but they don’t really know the path, they have never travelled it before.  The job of the coach is to know the path and to clear the obstacles, which might be technical, tactical or physical skills or might be equipment problems, ‘political’ problems etc. frequently the athlete does not see the problems. Having taken many fencers through this journey, I aim to bring my experience of this to those I currently coach.


In order for a coach to show on the register we confirm that they meet *minimum* eligibility standards - in terms of suitable criminal record checks, minimum safeguarding training, and minimum entry level coaching qualifications. For more information on minimum standards please see here.

BF does not currently provide an additional verification process in relation to the other information supplied by coaches which shows above. Coaches can choose to provide as much or as little detail as they wish. However, if you have any concerns in relation to the information a coach is providing on the register you can contact us here.

Coaches are encouraged to work within their qualifications and competencies, and if they don't, they are not insured. For more information click here.

It is a sign of good practice that coaches have updated and recent (last 6 years) British Fencing coaching qualifications and assessments. For more information click here.
