Safety and Child Protection
Safety and Child Protection are priorities for Scottish Fencing.
Fencing is one of the safest sports you can do. Fencing swords are not sharp, and everyone wears equipment that meets strict safety regulations. Coaches also ensure that students follow safe practices. It is taught safely to many youngsters throughout the world without incident.
Scottish Fencing maintains a list of registered coaches all of whom are required to have an up-to-date First Aid certificate and to attend a course on Protecting Vulnerable Groups.
