Tomorrows Achievers is the name of England Fencing’s youth development section created in 2005 as part of the England Fencing Youth Programme by the late Matthew Thompson , the then Youth Director Of England Fencing – a programme which he ran until a few weeks before his death in 2013. As Youth Director, Matthew was the strategic lead behind the reshaping of England Fencing’s youth championships and Tomorrows Achievers is very much one of his legacies
Training sessions cover all aspects of fencing, including warm-up, fitness, footwork, and bladework. Entry to Tomorrows Achievers is by invitation, but any Fencer between the ages of 10 and 14 can attend one Foil or Epee evaluation session, and fencers up to the age of 17 may be considered in special circumstances.
Tomorrows Achievers sessions are not suitable for beginners, and the fencers who will benefit most are those who have been fencing for a year or two, have competed successfully in a number of competitions, and aspire to compete at national and international standard.
