Referee Mentor Scheme

Refereeing in fencing, particularly for foil and sabre, is a skill which comes from a lot of practice and building on experience. Referees can improve their skills from constructive feedback of their performance and from observing current practice.

The ideal way to improve refereeing skills is not in a classroom setting but in competitions supported by a mentor who has gone through the process of seeking feedback and learning from experience.

Scottish Fencing has developed a mentor scheme to help those wishing to develop a career in refereeing.
