Referee Courses

Becoming a Fencing Referee

Fencing Referees

The first step on the fencing refereeing ladder begins within the relaxed atmosphere of your club. Here you can safely test out your refereeing skills supported by the British Fencing Rules app and your club mates.

From there it is a simple matter of attending an accredited Fencing Referee Course Level 1 & 2 to gain your first qualification and be entered onto the British Fencing Referee Register.
