In partnership with Sport England, British Fencing launched the University Fencing Officer (UFO) programme. An initiative designed to provide participation fencing opportunities to university students, through a peer-peer delivery method.
University is a key time for young people to start fencing and this may be their only activity. To make this a great experience, we have trained current university students to be ‘Fencing Ambassadors’ and deliver fun and engaging sessions using Sabre:Lite.
Sabre:Lite is a simplified version of Sabre fencing. We focus on delivery through a series of games to keep the sessions fresh. This game-based learning helps to keep things fun while they learn the skills of fencing. Most importantly we keep the students coming back as they start their journey into the world of fencing.
