    Greetings,

    Does anyone know if there is any professional groups or ways to find a trainer/instructor in any given area?

    I found the forum section for the Coaches Corner but was wondering if there was anything else that would help find a instructor for a school.

    thank you,
    Jason

    Posting something in the coaches' corner can help, because depending on location, type of school, salary, time commitment, etc. etc. you'll get different people who are interested. I am not aware of any place that lists 'fencing coaches for hire' or anything like that.

    Thanks for the info. I would not have thought that USFA would charge for the listing. Seems steep for a 60 day posting.

    The US Fencing Coaches Association (http://usfca.org) has occasional job listings as well as a "Find a coach" feature.

    Yeah, I wasn't too crazy about those prices either. It seems a bit high to me, given the niche field of potential viewership. :(
