Potential Coach Course attendee assessments

If you think you might like to become a coach or you are already a coach and would like to move up, our coach educators will be on hand to put you through you paces to see if you are ready to take a place on a course. Our course for level one and two (any/all weapons) will be planned over the following few months with different opportunities for you to attend training and assessment days. Please email our coach co-coordinators Ollie and Lee: coaching@southernfencing.org.uk to let them know you would like to book a slot with our educators to assess you and to arrange to tell you how the course will run.

There is no charge for this pre-course assessment.

Tea and coffee will be provided and a tuck shop will operate.
You will need to bring lunch along.

Places on all of these sessions are limited so please apply quickly.
