Thankyou for your support of the Sport of Fencing in Australia.

This paper has been approved by the Australian Fencing Federation (AFF) as the sport’s best advice to young Australian fencers seeking to develop their skills and talents with the aim of achieving international representation and success.

The AFF understands that it is difficult for fencers and parents who are relatively new to the sport to be able to access dependable and sound advice about the best pathway to achieve success. We are aware that even some coaches of young fencers may have limited knowledge of what is possible beyond the local or State/Territory scene.

To represent one’s country should be seen as a privilege, rather than an automatic right. Earning that privilege requires considerable hard work and commitment on the part of the athlete as well as from those supporting the athlete. There is no doubt that a considerable financial commitment will be required of parents of young fencers who wish to follow the development pathway to successful international representation.

The AFF has acquired a wealth of knowledge about best practice and traps to avoid in planning programs for young fencers. These guidelines have been developed on the basis of this accumulated knowledge and experience gained over many years with both successful and unsuccessful programs.

The guidelines are intended to assist young fencers, their coaches and parents to plan effective and efficient programs that incorporate appropriate training and competition experiences throughout the different stages of the fencer’s development.

Feedback on the guidelines can be directed to the AFF High Performance Program Commission
