2019 BYC qualifiers

To qualify for the British Youth Championships in May you need to enter a regional qualifier. Even if you have an automatic bye you still need to enter via your Region.

Below are links to the regional qualifiers and/or who you need to contact if you are interested in competing. If there is enough interest the regional organisers will arrange a qualifiying competition which is why you need to be in touch by mid January to give them time to make any arrangements.

#THISGIRLCAN Lara and Fleur's story

‘I’m a Woman’.. ‘Phenomenally.’. ‘Phenomenal woman’.. ‘That’s me’.

These lines, taken from the late Maya Angelou’s* poem Phenomenal Woman and, narrated by her, play over a video for the #thisgirlcan campaign (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZoXyIxqFRc) which is encouraging girls and women to play sport, using “real” women role models.

2018 Youth 5 Nations, Cardiff

Scottish Fencing is hoping to send a squad of fencers to 2018 Youth 5 nations being held at the Cardiff Met University.

The dates are 1 and 2 September with individual championships on the Saturday and Team matches the next day.

Following the recent Cadet and Junior Commonwealth Championships we recognise that the same squad of fencers might not be able to afford another trip away so are considering opening this event to less experienced fencers who would welcome the opportunity to represent Scotland.
