My Coaching Philosophy
The primary responsibility of the coach is to ensure they are only a resource for the student to learn and grow, not a source of pressure or coercion. The drive of the student should come from the inspiration they receive and the desire to put in work to improve themselves in a sport they love.

The only responsibility of the student is to continue to ask for the help of the coach only as long as they truly want it and feel the drive to work and improve.

Competitive results are both the natural reward for work and indicator of progress. Where progress stagnates and work does not result in improvement, it is the job of the coach to help the student to understand how the work must change to address the most limiting factor in performance. The reward for the coach is not the medal of the student, but the satisfaction of having successfully guided improvement.


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.
