Mental Health Awareness

Following requests from partners for support around mental health in the short term, Sport Wales has purchased more than 300 access opportunities for an enhanced Mental Health Awareness for Sport and Physical Activity e-learning course which has been developed by Mind, 1st4Sport & UK Coaching.
 
Particularly suitable for coaches, instructors and activators, the course gives learners the confidence to be able to support people experiencing mental health problems, ensuring they can enjoy the benefits of being active and keep coming back for more.

If you are interested, please email Matt Russell (matthew.russell@fencing.cymru), who will liaise with Sport Wales.

We have worked with a local supplier, Olorun Sports, to design a bespoke set of kit that reflects the Welsh national colours of green and red. The aim is to give all members a clearer identity as Welsh fencers.
