Scottish Fencing is keen to move from the current referee education system which is based on qualifications and levels and which tests how well referees know the rules. Ideally a future system would gauge someone’s competency to referee in an event or competition based on the experience they have gathered and on peer review. (this is similar to the philosophy of the current coach education programme).
The British Youth Fencing Championships are running on the 29 April to the 1 May and you can find further information about the tournament here. This is an essential tournament for younger competitive fencers wanting to progress their fencing to national or international levels.
Entries are now closed.
