Development Opportunities

//Development Opportunities

While the Pandemic is going on the Board and the Development Officer have sourced development opportunities for coaches, clubs and fencers. Please see the latest opportunities below. Our recent coaches call was well attended and proved to be a great success so please make an effort to attend to support our guest speakers. We are working with NI Sport to ensure as quick a return to fencing as possible.

Saturday 14th November 19.00 – 21.30
Presentation re Plastic Fencing with Keith Cook .
Keith Cook – ex GB International fencer and coach  – manages a very successful programme which delivers early stage fencing to hundreds of school age fencers in Edinburgh.
Keith will give us an insight into the philosophy and objectives of his programme and he will highlight the opportunities which exist to deliver plastic fencing to a broad base of young people outside of standard fencing sessions.
Pre Covid NIF has been exploring opportunities to train up a team of coaches who can deliver the Mini Fence sessions as after school sessions, birthday parties etc and this session with Keith will help to develop this concept .
It is therefore a session which should be of interest to coaches and fencers as well as those who currently aren’t involved in fencing (sport students , coaches in other sports etc) but who may be interested in the concept.
