2019 Coaching staff for Challenge Wratislavia

Scottish fencing are supporting a squad of young fencers at the Challenge Wratislavia Tournament in March 2019. 

We are currently seeking notes of interest from coaches interested in working with this squad of U15 and U13 fencers. Ideally we are looking for coaches who are currently working with fencers in this age group and who can demonstrate continued professional development. All the staff team will need to attend the planned training days and coaches must be registered with British Fencing.

#THISGIRLCAN Lara and Fleur's story

‘I’m a Woman’.. ‘Phenomenally.’. ‘Phenomenal woman’.. ‘That’s me’.

These lines, taken from the late Maya Angelou’s* poem Phenomenal Woman and, narrated by her, play over a video for the #thisgirlcan campaign (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZoXyIxqFRc) which is encouraging girls and women to play sport, using “real” women role models.
