Yes. I am aware that the US Fencing Coaches Association has a website.
But why don't they have webcasts?*
It is very likely that not every event at the annual conference or the regional workshops is appropriate for broadcast. Online learning and conferencing has progressed in ease and affordability by leaps and bounds in the last few years. Resources like Dimdim mean that literally anybody can host and recorded webcast content for under $100 for small groups to under $500 for larger groups, this includes reasonable webcams, mics etc (ones that I have actually used to webcast with succesfully).
Now, certainly any hands on work would not translate, but I know that numerous coaches are unable to attended on a yearly basis largely because of travel expenses and the time required. I am not a coach, but "coached" epee in college out of necessity and have aspirations of teaching fencing again some day. When that day comes I certainly plan on making use of whatever resources the USFCA has available through membership.
I understand that the USFCA is a membership organization, and (I believe) its activities are almost entirely supported through membership dues. I do not know what the financial situation for the USFCA, but every group could use more paying members. I for one would pay the very reasonable $50/year membership fee now just to have access to webcast material (no certification level is required to be a member), and there must be more like me.
I guess my main question is: does anyone know if this has this been seriously looked at by the USFCA for the yearly meeting, or coaching clinics.
Thoughts? Concerns? Anyone familiar with the org know why this can't or wouldn't be doable?
*I know not everyone is a fan of the USFCA, but this same question could certainly be asked of the some of the Coaches College presenations, as well as basic USFA ref clinics.
