2019 SYCs – a quick update from SF HQ

Last year running four six-weapon events across one weekend was a considerable effort and only just manageable. Any oversubscription of entries for example or equipment failures could have made the event run late. This prompted the events director to consider how to reduce the overall number of events. 

Given we have an extremely busy weekend Scotland-wide for fencing on February 2nd/3rd and athletes keen to participate at more than one event in more than one location it is critical for us to maintain a lean championships.

2018 #ThisGirlFences - Lara and Fleur

#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.

Chloe Dickson, at 22 years old, has been fencing competitively for half her life. Her journey began by accident, when at the age of 10 she found a bag of her Dad’s old fencing gear under a bed. After being shown the basics at home, it was not long before she had persuaded her parents to take her along to the local fencing club.
