My Coaching Philosophy
As a coach at the Vale Fencing Club I like to engender a love of the sport. For me, it's not all about serious training: I love it when our fencers win, but we're just as enthusiastic about our groups that meet for fun.
I tailor sessions to the individual needs, ages and abilities of each person attending. As a former teacher I believe in being firm but fair and always willing to listen and adapt, in keeping the "FUN" in the "FUNdementals of Fencing": not just teaching and coaching technique and tactics but also the roles of all who participate in our fencing family, Welfare officers, Referees, DT, Armourers and the important people - themselves and their families.


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.
