Please find below the names and contact details for our ADP Cymru coaches responsible for developing and delivering our ADP Cymru programme, and for providing to the Selection Panel the names of fencers recommended for selection to national and international events.
Welsh Fencing are pleased to announce that on Sunday March 5th we will be running an Athlete Development Programme (ADP) training day combined with the British Youth Championships (BYC) Qualifiers. The events have been combined to minimise costs for travel and weekends away.
We would encourage all fencers wishing to engage in more competitive fencing to attend the day and compete in the qualifiers to enable you to go to the BYC’s.
The ADP is a Welsh Fencing programme to further develop and support our fencers. More information is available on ADP (fencing.cymru). We are intending to run a brief session with parents and fencers to introduce the programme and answer any questions.
Welsh fencing is pleased to announce the introduction of the ADP Cymru programme.
We want to create a fencing organisation that the people of Wales can be proud to represent, support and aspire to be part of; creating a group that exhibits the best standards of personal character but also excels in technical, physical and tactical competence.
We want fencing to sit as proud and significant part of the national sporting landscape and become an avenue through which any person in Wales can become a World-class athlete and individual.
The programme will encompass all athletes and at times will be divided into separate age groups. While many sessions will be delivered in tandem there will be specialised content delivered to each age group. We will be looking for our more experienced athletes to display leadership and mentorship skills in the programme, and provide our younger athletes with aspirational training partners.
The “We Are Wales” mantra reflects the over arching theory that underpins everything we do, and allies with our key national identifiers - a proud, passionate, welcoming, innovative and inclusive nation.
Our athlete values are based around the Dragon and we want our fencers to become Y Ddraig when they represent our nation.
