British Fencing are looking for clubs and organisations that embody the values of the GBR Programmes and can actively demonstrate a ‘growth-mindset’ in relation to their ongoing development and progression of holistic athletes. We look for clubs that:
Status of a Centre is awarded for a two-year-period, with a yearly update of the self-assessment accreditation.
The Centres will provide a link into the Athlete Development Programme for athletes as they make their first steps from clubs into GBR performance fencing. Centres will provide fencers with wider development opportunities, including increased and appropriate sparring, S&C and coaching that is tailored to their needs. It is expected that there will be a sufficient number of identified fencers who will not need to travel for more than 45 minutes to attend the centre.
