2020 Youth Five Nations - squad invite

Scottish Fencing is starting to plan for the Youth Five Nations which are in Manchester on the weekend of the 27 and 28 June.

We have sent invites to all Scottish fencers who are currently on the British Fencing junior and cadet rankings. Our plan is to build a squad with the final team being selected from this group. If you are on the junior and cadet rankings and not got an invite, please get in touch to let us know if you are available and interested in selection.

We are also looking to build squad numbers so are asking coaches to nominate fencers who are close to competing at British cadet level but haven't got a ranking yet. 

We are aiming to run training sessions similar to the Pathways training for Challenge Wratislavia and want to open this up to all fencers who are looking to broaden their fencing experience. So squad members don't have to be available to compete at the Youth Five Nations, they just need to have a desire to widen their knowledge. Again get in touch if you would like to take part in some extra training. (minimum age 13).

We aim to keep costs of the training sessions to a minimum but we will need to cover hall hire and other costs.

Please note that any fencer selected for the Youth Five Nations will need to pay travel and accommodation, as well as a contribution to staff and event costs. We don’t have an estimate of what these are yet.

When we first made these plans the dates for Challenge Wratislavia were not the same weekend as the Youth Five Nations. As of yet we don't know how this will affect the Youth Five Nations but please get in touch if you are interested in either selection or the squad training.
