Coaching at the club

At Edinburgh Fencing Club all of our coaches are registered with our governing body, British Fencing, and are fully trained.

Coaching Policy

Only coaches who are on the British Fencing Coach Register are permitted to coach at Edinburgh Fencing Club. This includes private coaches as well as our class coaches, even if you are friends or relatives or if the lessons are free. This helps us to ensure that all of our members are getting the highest quality coaching in a safe environment from fully qualified coaches. If you are new to the club and would like to coach, please send us an email beforehand and identify yourself to one of the club coaches or committee when you arrive. If for whatever reason we are unable to verify that you are on the coaching register, you will not be able to coach at the club until we have confirmed your registration.

To be on the British Fencing Coach Register, coaches are required to have valid PVG, Emergency First Aid and Safeguarding and Protecting Children certification in addition to their coaching qualification.

You can access the current coach register on the British Fencing website:
