Coaches Register Updates (Feb)

British Fencing publishes, periodically, a list of BFA Coaches together with their relevant weapon qualifications.

Welsh Events Calendar

Calendar of Welsh events, including Senior events, Youth events, Coaching workshops and Youth Development Session with online entry forms.

The list below, which will be updated each month, shows those WF Coaches who are coaching in Wales, and are on the British Coaches Register, and therefore insured to coach. Entry onto the list also requires that the coach must have current certification showing the coach has DBS (previously CRB), must hold an Emergency First Aid at Work, or First Aid at Work (6 hr course only one acceptable) in the last 3 years – A Safeguarding and Protecting Children Certificate in the last 3 years, and must be a current member of British Fencing. Only those over 18 years of age may be on the Register.

Unless listed below, Coaches are not covered for their activity, and it is the responsibility of clubs to only use/employ Registered Coaches.

We would also like to draw Coaches/Clubs attention to a recent circular from the BFA which says:

We would like to take this opportunity to remind coaches that unless they have taken out their own private cover, only coaches listed on the Coaches Register are covered to deliver coaching sessions. We urge all clubs and registered coaches to ensure that anyone delivering coaching in their clubs is on the coach register.

Within the cover we provide to registered coaches we would like to remind coaches that if they are coaching groups outside their level of training they may not be covered for your coaching work’
