2018 Youth Home Nations - update

Scottish Fencing put a call out for junior fencers who would be interested in representing Scotland at the Youth Home Nations which are being held in Cardiff in September. Following a highly successful Cadet and Junior Commonwealth Fencing Championships (CJCFC) many of the team selected for that event were unable to attend the Home nations and we thought this would be a great opportunity for those who didn’t fence at the CJCFC to have a great weekend of individual and team fencing.

2018 CFC selection update

The documents below are the Men's and Women's Foil and Men's Sabre data which will be put to the selectors for the Commonwealth Championships in Canberra in November.  British Fencing has not published its July ranking lists so these are based on 11 months of our selection period.  We are not aware of any competitions in June which will have a material impact on the selection decisions.  An updated Women's Sabre is now posted below.

2018 CFC selection

2019 Challenge Wratislavia - proposals

Competing at Challenge Wratislavia has been a highlight for many of our younger fencers. It is an inspirational tournament. It is challenging but not beyond many of our younger fencers which makes it an ideal first step to competing outside of the UK.

Friendships made on this trip are a legacy that bonds future Scottish Fencing teams and it is great to see how young people develop during the trip.

It is a fantastic event but over the years it has grown beyond the capacity for Scottish Fencing to manage with the resources available. And this is why we are conducting a review.
