18 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 Context of UKS Funding

19 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

20 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

21 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

22 Podium Potential Programme Funding focussed on a limited number of weapons – Squad of 10 Mens 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

23 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

24 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

25 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
