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 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.
