“GET READY FOR THE NEW SEASON” CONTINUES WITH EPEE SEMINAR TWO
FIE REFEREE SEMINARS FOR EPEE CONTINUE
The EFC’s referee training seminar series, which began in September last year, continued today with the second group of eleven epee referees. Group two were getting their first experience of working with some of the highest level FIE referees.
Following the format now familiar, the delegates were put through a theory test followed by practical session analysing videos from recent high level international fencing tournaments.
EFC Secretary General, Jacek Slupski, who hosted the seminar was joined by referee mentors, Ambre Civiero, Matthias Henkelmann and Mihail Paghiev who provided their expert opinion throughout.
Speaking about her involvement in the epee seminar series Ambre Civiero said, “At a time when we are slowly returning to fencing around the World, it is a pleasure to assist the developing referees ahead of their next EFC and FIE examinations. I am particularly pleased to see the young female referees involved in this development programme. So far, the sessions have been very dynamic and interactive, which is important.”
In total three groups of epee referees will enjoy two sessions each over the coming weeks.
