JUNIOR INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMME
The World Class Performance Team is now fully responsibile for managing the Junior international squad programme. This section of the website is aimed at fencers who are trying to qualify to fence for Great Britain at Junior European and World Championships, their parents and their coaches.
After a lengthy consultation process, British Fencing has taken the decision to separate the protocol for ranking from that of selection. Further details can be found on our Junior Rankings and Selections page.
These policies have been made in an effort to allow our fencers to perform at the highest level on the international stage both at Junior and Senior levels. In addition to that the consultation panel were keen to ensure that no fencer was exposed to major championships too early in their development.
The Key Performance Indicators that Sport England measure us on are available here.
