2024 Athlete Survey

Dear Athletes,

Thank you to each of you who took part in the 2024 Athlete Survey. Your participation is invaluable and the insights gained from your feedback will be instrumental in our efforts to work with the AFF to bring about positive change for fencing in Australia.

After the survey was closed, the AC compiled the results and read through all the written feedback to understand the issues that athletes felt were most relevant to them. The report’s main objective was to provide recommendations based on the written feedback in conjunction with the numeric response data. The AC then drafted a report to present and discuss with the AFF Board in early March.

The Board has committed to reviewing the report’s recommendations in detail, and the High-Performance Commission has agreed to discuss recommendations specifically relating to the High-Performance Program.  As we are nearing the end of the current Olympic cycle, there exists an excellent opportunity to continue to make significant and sweeping progress across all facets of Australian fencing, building toward 2032, and setting up the future for fencing in Australia. The AFF Board and the HPC recognise this and are therefore keen to work through the report as a matter of high priority such that several recommendations can be adopted in the short term.

For those interested, the numeric response data from the survey has been included HERE.

Once again, thank you so much to everyone who contributed to the 2024 Athlete Survey.

See you on the piste!
