Volunteers

Scottish Fencing depends on the hard work and committment of volunteers for much of its work. We could not opearate without them!

There are lots of ways to help out if you want to get involved - helping to run competitions, maintain this website, or even run Scottish Fencing.

In return, you can gain valuable volunteering experience, learn new skills and meet a wide range of new people. And those contributing now will also be well-placed to get high-profile roles when we host the Commonwealth Fencing Championships in 2014.

You can find a full list of available roles on our vacancies page.

Contact the Scottish Fencing administrator to find out more (admin@scottish-fencing.com).
