Welsh fencing is pleased to announce the introduction of the ADP Cymru programme.
We want to create a fencing organisation that the people of Wales can be proud to represent, support and aspire to be part of; creating a group that exhibits the best standards of personal character but also excels in technical, physical and tactical competence.
We want fencing to sit as proud and significant part of the national sporting landscape and become an avenue through which any person in Wales can become a World-class athlete and individual.
The programme will encompass all athletes and at times will be divided into separate age groups. While many sessions will be delivered in tandem there will be specialised content delivered to each age group. We will be looking for our more experienced athletes to display leadership and mentorship skills in the programme, and provide our younger athletes with aspirational training partners.
The “We Are Wales” mantra reflects the over arching theory that underpins everything we do, and allies with our key national identifiers - a proud, passionate, welcoming, innovative and inclusive nation.
Our athlete values are based around the Dragon and we want our fencers to become Y Ddraig when they represent our nation.
