Coach Connection 2021 – Professional Development

WFencing is excited to announce Coach Connection/Spring 2021!

It is time to group together and ask the hard questions about our own development.  Work to  advance yourself in anticipation of the new opportunities and rapid growth in fencing when competition returns.

Small groups of same-weapon coaches will meet for six sessions.  Each coach will work actively on advancing their own skills with like-minded and generally similar skill level of coaches.  Coaches of all levels are encouraged to participate.


Topics will include (but not be limited to):

  • 2nd Intention Actions.
  • Choice Response Drills.
  • Analyze how we communicate with our students.
  • Identify our own professional development plans for 1-5 years. 
  • Using actions like a language

Participants must be willing to film their lessons and present to the group professional goals for themselves with material provided. Focus will be on collaborative learning and producing something creative for the greater fencing world after the end of the series. 

Pod Facilitators:

  • Saber — Jen Oldham
  • Foil — Julie Seal
  • Epee — Sandra Merchant 

Pods are anticipated to begin mid-February and run through May. Times will vary depending on the group.
