The Performance Scholarship provides £10,000 of fencing benefits per year to each fencer selected to be on the programme. These fencers are selected for their skill and are in the top 20 of a country’s fencing rankings. Their programme is set by our Head coach, who is the current GBR Women’s Foil Coach & British Fencing ADP coach. Classes will include a warm up, warm down, footwork, blade work, sparring with set tactics and individual lessons.
All fencers will follow a periodisation as set by the coach according to their competition schedule. This means that each class may be different for each athlete. These fencers are already on the Athlete Development Pathway (T1-T3) and aim to become selected for (E1-E2). Full electric fencing is a requirement for these sessions.
