Description

Cambridge Sword is very pleased to offer all its fencers the chance to gain the BAF achievement awards. These are an excellent way of ensuring fencers progress but also provide a common language and understanding so that fencers can move easily between sessions, coaches and in the future clubs - if they progress to regional or national standard.

Linda and I design all our beginner and intermediate sessions around the Bronze and Silver award syllabus and we are more than pleased to offer the Gold syllabus to anyone who applies! The practical and theory exam will take place in the usual session.

The Gold award is very useful if you are thinking of taking the BAF coaching awards later on and the club will support you with any coaching ambitions you may have. Therefore we can offer the Gold award to our Advanced fencers without having first taken the Bronze and Silver - we will work with fencers to develop a learning programme and examinations would normally be withing 6 months.

The cost of the BAF Study Guide, examination and administration is £11.00 and when successfully passed also includes a certificate and badge (we will not charge for any "retakes" and the vast majority of those taking the exam pass first time - it's intended as a sign of progress not a vile and unhappy experience!)

The bronze award can usually be achieved in 4 to 10 weeks. The scheme gives the pupil something to aim for whilst learning to fence. The achievement of an award can give a fantastic confidence boost to those who are not very successful at other sports at school. Many schools choose to present the awards in assembly.

The award consists of a certificate and a metal lapel badge coloured to match the level of the award. This study guide is particularly useful as it contains information relating to fencing theory, rules and regulations. The Guide contains all the information necessary for the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards so you need only buy it once - subsequent award examination will cost £8.00 so to reach Gold standard the cost will be £27.00 (Initial award and booklet £11.00 plus Silver and Gold examinations 2 x £8.00)

Certificates are individually printed, personalised with the coach’s name and that of the pupil. These certificates can be ordered in a group or individually.
