SFA Training Day - cancelled

When this date was decided it was a free in the British Fencing calendar. Since then other organisers published their events and now this training clashes with several competitions. Due to these clashes the SFA training is cancelled on the 17 September. We are currently working on confirming dates and venues for future SFA training and hope to have these published as soon as possible. 

SFA Training Day - Cancelled

Queen Anne's High School, Dunfermline

Due to a clash with other British Fencing events, we have cancelled this training day.


With strength and conditioning, tactical sparring and fight training SFA is the ideal way to improve your competitive fencing skills.

Fencers are welcome to bring their own coaches and the training is suitable to all ages and all competitive fencers. The aim of the day is working together to find tactics which work for you as a fencer and to give you the opportunity to spar with fencers from other clubs. 

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).
