#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.

If you are interested in supporting our athletes in this way and feel you are qualified, please read the job description below and send the CFC Team Manager a note of interest with CV and/or a covering letter detailing your suitability for the role.  

Referee Advisory Group Strategists

Do you want fencing in Scotland to continue to grow and improve?

Do you want competitions in Scotland underpinned by high quality refereeing?

If the answer to these questions is YES, then we have an exciting opportunity for you!

Scottish Fencing recognise that the development of a clear Referee Pathway is essential to the continued growth and development of our sport. To support the development of this pathway, we are looking for two volunteer strategists to join the new Referee Advisory Group (RAG).

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.
