Southern Region Hub Development Day Sunday 20 July

Southrn region Hub 20 JulySt Gabriel’s School, Newbury 10am till 4pm

Registration is now open for the summer session of the Southern Region Development Hub on 20th July.

There is a great selection of sessions, including lunch for all attendees.

We have our usual stellar team of coaches for foil, epee and sabre. You don’t need to have attended a previous hub day to join in, and you don’t need to be a youth fencer either. The sessions are suitable for anybody looking to progress, at any level.

Register here:

There is a full day referee workshop with Peter Huggins, including the option to take the written test, working at  level 1/2 refereeing – the practical assessment to confirm the level can be done at a competition you next attend. There’s no minimum age, and this is a great opportunity for any of our youth fencers who are heading into the summer break to start their qualifications. It’s also a fun way for parents to get involved.

Coach development session in the morning will help kick off our new coach development track alongside fencer development.

Amoury workshop lets you drop in with specific questions  or equipment issues, or spend the day learning alongside our master amourer, Janet Huggins, on path to becoming an apprentice or journeyman.

Medieval swords in the afternoon with Alan Knowles provides a fun, fresh perspective on fencing skills. This session is suitable for anybody aged 14 and over. Places are strictly limited, so get your registration in early to confirm a place on this popular course. If you’d like to do fencing in the morning and medieval swords in the afternoon, let me know, and we can arrange accordingly.

Register for any of these sessions here:

Parents are welcome throughout the day and encouraged to try their hand at reffing, armoury and medieval swords as well as join us for the summer lunch.

You can see more on the 2014-07 SFR Hub Development Day – poster. And please share this at your club!

Any questions about the sessions on offer, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
