2017 Club development grants - updated!

Following a review of earlier grant applications, Scottish Fencing recognise that many clubs have been deterred from applying for grants due to the requirement to reach a set target of members. 

We appreciate that many clubs cannot afford to lose money on these activities if they failed to reach their member target. 

In order to protect clubs from this Scottish Fencing will cover successful applicants’ costs to ensure they do not lose money on activities, so long as every new/returning fencer that attends an activity becomes a member of 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).
