Charterhouse School is seeking to appoint a casual fencing coach to take over training a club of approximately 15 fencers.
From Charterhouse School:
Charterhouse School is looking for a fencing coach to work closely with the Director of Sport, and the relevant staff in charge of fencing, in developing the sporting potential of pupils to their highest possible standards. The fencing club currently has approximately 15 fencers. This consists of pupils from Year 9 to Year 13 (so throughout the school) and they use a mixture of weapons.
Sessions currently run from 13:45 til 16:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but there is flexibility to extend these timings. Inter-school matches typically take place on Thursdays and Saturdays (the successful candidate would be required to referee, so would be needed on some Saturdays) and there is the option to have additional training sessions on the Saturdays which do not have fixtures if so desired.
We also take pupils to the Public Schools Fencing Championships, which run over three (full) days in March. The role will make a good addition to a pre-existing coaching circuit, or form a good starting core for someone looking to build up a circuit moving forwards.
