Development Grants - 2016 update and launch of 17 – 18 programme

Scottish Fencing is pleased to highlight some of the great work carried out by member clubs with support from the grant scheme during 2016/17. Salle Ossian, Shetland Fencing Club, ActiFence and Aberdeen Fencing Club ran beginners courses and competitions for new fencers, resulting in over 70 new members joining Scottish Fencing.

Safety Notice - Masks

Following an incident at the British Fencing Junior and Cadet Championships, please can all referees, competition organisers, coaches and officials pay careful attention to the following:

1. Referees should give a yellow card if a fencer comes on the piste wearing a mask that is not safely secured even if it has not fallen off. (This is a preventative measure)

2. A yellow card should be given whenever a mask falls off during a fight.

Coach Education Recognition of Prior Learning

Application can be made by fencing coaches to Scottish Fencing (SF) for consideration and recognition of prior learning, qualifications and experience which may be considered by Scottish Fencing to be at least the equivalent of qualifications within Scottish Fencing’s Coach Development Programme (SFCDP).
