2018 Forging the Future

Here at Scottish Fencing we are moving into a new investment period with our majority funder sportscotland.

With this in mind, we felt this was an opportunity to think again about our long term goals.  The Board of Scottish Fencing formed a strategy sub-group under the leadership of Independent Director Gail Prince and the sub-group strategic recommendations for the next 6 years are enclosed here.

2019 Challenge Wratislavia - outcome of feedback

A big thank you to all who sent comments or spoke to Ross, Scottish Fencing Director for Development regarding Challenge Wratislavia.

It is a great event and clearly been a big part of many of our younger fencers development. The outcomes from the consultation are:

 

Selection

2019 Challenge Wratislavia - thank you

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the consultation process For Challenge Wratislavia 2019. It was fantastic to hear from so many within our fencing community and for me it feels like the final process is a real community effort.

2019 Challenge Wratislavia - proposals

Competing at Challenge Wratislavia has been a highlight for many of our younger fencers. It is an inspirational tournament. It is challenging but not beyond many of our younger fencers which makes it an ideal first step to competing outside of the UK.

Friendships made on this trip are a legacy that bonds future Scottish Fencing teams and it is great to see how young people develop during the trip.

It is a fantastic event but over the years it has grown beyond the capacity for Scottish Fencing to manage with the resources available. And this is why we are conducting a review.
