Scottish Fencing is delighted to announce that we are taking a squad of junior fencers to Youth Home Nations in Dublin on the 29 and 30 June. We are now looking to recruit three weapon coaches and a Team Manager to support the Scottish Team for this event.

We invite applications from coaches who are qualified at Level 3 or, Level 2 if they have relevant experience and are currently working towards their Level 3. Team Managers need to have relevant Child Protection and Welfare training and previous experience of managing a squad of fencers away from home.

2019 Veterans World Qualifier results

While the youngsters were fighting at one edge of Europe, the veterans were in London for the first of the three qualifying competitions for this year's World Championships.  There were Gold medals for Sheila Anderson (WF Cat 3), Viv Frith (WS Cat 4) and Hugh Kernohan (ME Cat 3).  Michele Narey (WS Cat 2) and Barry Coulter (MS Cat 3) won Silvers and Maggie Tait (WE Cat 3) and Mike McKay (MF Cat 2) Bronzes.  It was also excellent  to see Stephen Rennie back in competition as he recovers from the serious accident he had at the end of last year.

Engaging with Parents - West Lothian Fencing Club

Engaging parents is often an important step in a child's long-term involvement with a sport. Fencing is a sport that can be enjoyed by people of all ages, who can participate together within our dedicated community clubs. This allows opportunities for parents to engage in our sport alongside their children, which has huge social and familial benefits. 

 

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.
