Context of UKS Funding
• ‘No Compromise’ Approach
• Investment principle 5 - Funding is a privilege not a right
• UK Sport do NOT distribute funding ‘equally’ - they
unashamedly target sports / athletes capable of winning
Olympic medals
• They reinforce excellence - sports with a track record and
who performed in London saw big increases
• They challenge under performance and reject mediocrity –
those failing to achieve are under intense scrutiny and
receive only one year awards
• A strategy designed to reinforce the best, support the
developing and provoke change in the underperforming
British Fencing – Project Rio
• Funding application was the culmination of 12
months work between BF Performance Team and
UKS
• Part of the application was the submission of
athletes and weapons for support
• RAG rated by the Project Rio Investment Panel
• Decisions on how many places to offer was based
on the assessment of the overall business case,
athletes / weapons and track record to date
UKS Award
• Only one year of support guaranteed
• No Podium athlete places provided (Podium = will
medal at 2016)
• Only 12 Podium Potential places (Podium Potential =
will qualify in 2016 and medal in 2020)
• Tasked by UKS to continue the progress made with the
step change in approach to performance and build a
sustainable performance programme
• Required to implement a new coaching structure, elite
centralised training centre, raise standards for selection
to international competitions, deliver results
Year One Objectives
• Key is to try and convince UKS through objective
performance based evidence, we can win a medal in
2016
• Unlock Podium places and further Podium Potential
places (116 available)
• Steer from UKS to initially focus on one or a small
number of weapons and deliver success
• Operate a pseudo Podium Programme with some
Podium Potential places
• Identify athletes who are ‘real’ Podium Potential
• Start a talent identification and confirmation
programme across all six weapons
Podium Potential Programme
• Funding focussed on a limited number of weapons
– Squad of 10 Men’s Foil / 1 x WE / 1 x WF
• Athletes will be in competition for the available spaces on the
programme as restricted by funding and resources
• This mean some supported athletes in a squad may be developing
and not at the same current performance standard as those in
other weapons not supported
• Admission to the WCP is not guaranteed on reaching the minimum
entry criteria but also on:
– There is a place available
– The weapon is identified as being targeted in Year One
– Fencer assessed in regards to likely medal potential at Olympic level in
2016 (fast track in year one)
– Fencer assessed as having the potential to win a medal in 2020
– Those joining the Programme aspire to win medals and not simply to be
on the WCP
– Signed up to the level of commitment required at that stage
– Signed Athlete Agreement
Non-Funded Senior Programmes
• Introduction of voluntary Weapon Managers to work
with the WCP to provide support to those non-funded
weapons
• Works closely with WCP to further the performances of
non WCP funded squads and athletes
• Responsible for putting together a programme of
activity that aligns with the WCP at senior level
• Responsible for making and maintaining contact with
athletes eligible for selection for international squads
• Provide help and support at competitions
Talent Identification & Confirmation
and Talent Programmes
• Supported by with limited funding by UKS and SE
through their Excel funding
• Only one year funding at standstill level from SE
• Head of Pathway Development now recruited
• Key tasks in Year One:
– clearly articulate the vision for fencing and submit a
revised funding application to SE for years 2-4
– introduction of talent assessment days across all six
weapons
– put in place a squad based system to support
identified talented athletes
Beyond Year One
• By the end of Year one we need to have demonstrated to
UKS and SE that we can build and run a sustainable
performance programme and meet KPIs and milestones
• We would hope that we can ‘unlock’ podium places or at
least receive more podium potential places
• Have a WC talent programme operating across all six
weapons providing a pipeline of athletes for PP places
• Have submitted a strategy to SE for enhanced support for
talent programmes
• We will amend the entry criteria and selection process in
line with podium potential aspirations – qualify in 2016
and medal 2020
