2020 Central Section BYC qualifiers

Central section qualifiers for the BYCs are scheduled for the same weekend as the final YDS in Bathgate on the 14 and 15 March. But Central Section qualifiers will only run a competition if there are more entries than the minimum number of qualifiers.

So don’t miss out on the YDS – central section fencers who wish to compete at the BYCs - please enter both events.

If there needs to be central section qualifiers the organisers will arrange these at a time and venue so that no-one misses out on their YDS competition.

2019 SYCs – a quick update from SF HQ

Last year running four six-weapon events across one weekend was a considerable effort and only just manageable. Any oversubscription of entries for example or equipment failures could have made the event run late. This prompted the events director to consider how to reduce the overall number of events. 

Given we have an extremely busy weekend Scotland-wide for fencing on February 2nd/3rd and athletes keen to participate at more than one event in more than one location it is critical for us to maintain a lean championships.

2019 BYC qualifiers

To qualify for the British Youth Championships in May you need to enter a regional qualifier. Even if you have an automatic bye you still need to enter via your Region.

Below are links to the regional qualifiers and/or who you need to contact if you are interested in competing. If there is enough interest the regional organisers will arrange a qualifiying competition which is why you need to be in touch by mid January to give them time to make any arrangements.
