2016-05-11 22:16 - Nominations Called for AFT Camp attendance
Posted by Lambviccmore from same (Australia)
AustraliaThe Australian Fencing Federation allows selected fencers from other Oceania Federations to attend their Australian Fencing Team Training Camps. These camps are held twice a year and involve four days of high-level training with members of the Australian Fencing Team and other invited elite fencers, conducted by the Australian High Performance Coaches.

The next AFT Camp will be held in Canberra from 25-28 June. Up to 4 fencers per weapon (12 in total) from OFC countries can potentially attend and FeNZ are now seeking nominations from NZ fencers who wish to take advantage of this opportunity.

All nominations to attend must be submitted to FeNZ at secretary@fencing,org,nz no later than 18 May 2016. A nomination form is required, but no nomination fee is payable.

Note that all associated travel costs and camp registration fees are the responsibility of the individual athlete.

2016-05-05 08:59 - FeNZ Strategy 2020
Posted by Lambviccmore from same (FeNZ)
FeNZThe purpose of this message is to announce the launch of a new Strategic Plan for fencing in New Zealand. The Strategy known as FENZ 2020 is now up and running and we are on a journey to deliver a bigger more successful and robust sporting organisation.

The strategy is exciting for all of us associated with fencing; whether an active fencer, a parent and supporter or one of our many volunteers.

There is something in it for everyone.

More details of the Strategy will be provided over the next short while either on the website or via FaceBook.
Just to highlight the major strategic objectives:
 We aim to achieve significant growth in membership sufficient to take us to 2000 active fencers by 2020
 We aim to have at least 10 NZ fencers in the top 150 FIE rankings and sustain that number.

I am sure you will agree that these are audacious targets. But “you only hit what you aim for”.

Of course achieving anything worthwhile requires lots of hard work and over the next few months you will see more evidence of the strategy being implemented and people getting involved.

If you have any questions or concerns I would be keen to hear from you directly and of course we are always looking for skills and resources and ideas.

Looking forward to working with you on the strategy implementation – let the fun begin

2016-05-03 22:40 - FROM THE PRESIDENT'S DESK Update on Ping's Olympic Progress
Posted by Lambviccmore from same (Olympics)
OlympicsWe all acknowledge and congratulate Ping on her great result at the Asian Olympic Qualifying Round in Wuxi, China two weeks ago. Her second in Women’s Foil result means she meets the qualifying requirements for FENZ to be promoted forward to NZOC for possible selection.

So what happens now?

Myself, Ken Claridge (past President) and Vicci Lamb (Sec Gen) met with Ping and her partner (coach) Ming this last Sunday to discuss next steps.

Roughly the time line is as follows:

1.    Around May 10th NZOC should be in receipt of a letter from FIE providing official details of Ping’s qualification and “endorsing” or encouraging NZOC to consider Ping’s selection to the NZ Olympic squad for Rio.
2.    Prior to this the formal application and supporting endorsements from FENZ will be submitted to NZOC – this is a standard NZOC application but represents the formal nomination and sign off that Ping meets all the FENZ criteria for promotion to NZOC and selection.
3.    It is then over to NZOC to conduct their evaluation of Ping’s suitability to fully meet the Olympic standards and pronounce on her selection etc.

We are not sure of the exact dates for all this to be concluded but as we learn more we will keep everyone in the loop.

In the meantime we are working with Ping to finalise her Development Plan covering her training, development and funding from now until the Fencing Competitions commence on the 6th August in Rio. This is of course on the premise she is selected.

We are all keen to assist Ping to reach her objectives and in addition to support of the monetary kind from FENZ and Oceania we will be setting up some fundraising facilities so everyone can assist as best they can once we her officially she has been selected. More info on this to follow shortly.
