Developing the sport of Fencing in Ireland is held back as we don’t have enough coaches. In addition, a qualified coach is required to be present at all sessions which limits the clubs ability to provide training.
It is our policy to encourage suitable candidates to attend Fencing Ireland coaching courses as they are made available.
In addition, from time to time we provide internal coach development training for club members to help them prepare for national qualification and to support ongoing training sessions. We actively target both genders in this endeavour.
These development opportunities are open to both fencers and fencing parents and members should discuss taking part in this if they are interested in learning new leadership and fencing skills. Please approach the coach or a member of the committee for further information.
