Get Into Coaching
Do you have more than 1 year of fencing experience? Do you want to give something back to the sport you love? Have you thought about Coaching?
Coaching can be extremely rewarding and a lot of fun, whether you are helping someone with their first steps on the piste or helping players to develop and achieve their potential – British Fencing is here to help and support you!
Each year the Regional Hub Network organises coaching courses, workshops and training days to offer professional development opportunities to new and existing coaches. If you are interested in coaching but are unsure which qualification you want to do first, here is a simple guide:
Level 1 – Assistant Coach – may assist a more qualified coach in the delivery of fencing sessions and/or deliver without direct supervision, pre-planned/prepared fencing sessions for groups of absolute beginners.
Level 2 – Coach – can prepare, deliver and review fencing sessions for groups and individuals including fencers who have completed a beginners’ programme and who are now training/fencing regularly at a club.
