Coaching FAQ

by Peter Russell

Firstly, it's great that you're interested in starting coaching and giving something back to the sport! Welsh Fencing will try and offer you all the support you need to make the transition from student to teacher. It's important to remember that taking up coaching doesn't mean you have to stop fencing yourself - Indeed, staying in touch with the competitive side of the sport in an important part of being a good coach to your students.

BFA Coaches Register

by Mark Ridsdale

The list below, which will be updated periodically, shows those WF Coaches who are on the British Fencing Coaches Register, and therefore insured to coach.     Please use the link at the bottom of this page to see the full BFA Register, if required.

Entry onto the list also requires that the coach must have current certification showing the coach has DBS (previously CRB), must hold an Emergency First Aid at Work, or First Aid at Work (6 hr course only one acceptable) in the last 3 years – A Safeguarding and Protecting Children Certificate in the last 3 years, and must be a current member of British Fencing. Only those over 18 years of age may be on the Register.

Unless listed below, Coaches are not covered for their activity, and it is the responsibility of clubs to only use/employ Registered Coaches.
