Coach Support at Competitions

Our coaches are keen to support fencers at competitions.  At present, this is done on a voluntary basis and coaches give a great deal of their time to this aspect of the club.  Coaches will continue to support where possible but may not be present at every competition.  Where coach expenses are considerable, the club will ask for a parental contribution towards these costs.  We are currently planning for a coach to be at 2 National competitions, although others will also be considered. These are:

British Youth Championships, Sheffield (entry is by qualification)

British National Junior and Cadet Championships



Please talk to your coach if you wish to have support at a British Ranking event.

Where a coach would not normally attend a competition, parents may wish to get together to cover coaches expenses.


In-house Competitions

Each year we run the Smith Trophy, the proceeds of which are used to repair and replace equipment and scoring apparatus.  We hope all our members will support this event.
