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.

Club Development Officers - Car's resignation

At the end of April, Car Stevenson resigned from her post of National Development Officer. Scottish Fencing hopes that Car carries on in a coaching capacity in the West of Scotland so that she can pass on her wealth of knowledge and experience in Sabre to youngsters in the area.

The Board recognises her work with Positive Coaching Scotland in establishing seminars for parents, her contributions to developing the Equality action plan and her efforts supporting clubs with Swordmark accreditation.

Performance Manager

It is with regret that the Board announces that Don McKenzie will be leaving Scottish Fencing at the end of May due to redundancy.  Don has supported many of our athletes onto the British Fencing performance pathway including Katie Smith, Chloe Dickson, Kate Daykin and Jess Corby over the nine years in the post, working with the Scottish Institute of Sport to ensure our athletes made best use of the support provided by them.  He has supported many Scottish Fencing teams at Five-Nation matches and Senior and Junior Commonwealth Championships.
