Scottish Student Sport (SSS) and Scottish Fencing are excited to re-announce their partnership aimed at promoting and developing fencing among student athletes in Scotland. The renewed partnership will see the two organisations working closely by means of the SS Fencing Development Group to identify key priorities, challenges and opportunities for the sport and its stakeholders.
The partnership will focus on supporting the development of SS Fencing in areas such as officiating, with efforts to support the training, certification and retention of officials. This will improve the standards and consistency of officiating, while also encouraging more people to get involved in officiating, especially from underrepresented groups.
Additionally, the partnership will aim to raise the profile of student fencing through various strategies, such as promoting the achievements and stories of student fencers, showcasing the diversity and inclusivity of the sport, sharing across social media, and other relevant platforms.
Furthermore, the partnership will continue to support the development of student fencing while exploring new possibilities to ensure the best experience for student fencers. This will involve scoping more opportunities for student fencers to participate, enhancing the quality of training and coaching, and explore new formats and structures for fencing competitions, which can enhance the engagement of participants.BACK TO LIST
