FENCER VISIT

Group visits to another club in the network for one or two weeks to train together and get to know another region, country or culture. If the fencers are minors they should be accompanied by an authorized coach or parent in a minimum ratio of 1 adult per 8 minor students. The goal is to minimize cost, so the host club should try to provide accommodation in local volunteer fencing families. It would be ideal if the visit coincides with a local competition where the visiting fencers could participate.

VOLUNTEER COACHING

A Coach visits another club to exchange experiences, improve language skills or simply help promote fencing in the area as a volunteer. It is a volunteer activity so the visiting Coach will not be employed and or paid. The goal is to minimize cost, so the host club should try to provide accommodation in local volunteer fencing family, facilitate transportation and minimize any other incremental cost for the Coach.

GROUP VISIT OR EXCHANGE

Two of more clubs agree to exchange visits. A trip is organized and coordinated often including a bit of tourism and stays with local fencing families.
