The Scottish Youth Championships are the highlight of the year for many fencers in Scotland and neatly placed in the calendar just after exams. So there is a great feeling of bringing together everything we have learned and achieved at school both academically and in sport. It is also the first year that Salle Ossian has been in existence and so the benchmark would be set at these championships for years to come. This year’s championships were held at St Thomas Acquins School in Edinburgh and attended by the best fencers from around Scotland and by Scottish fencers from further afield. Salle Ossian fencers took four golds, three silvers and two bronze medals. Well done to all the fencers for all their hard work, culminating in great performances this weekend. Well done to all the fencers who did their very best on the day to make for a hugely enjoyable event and especially to Salle Ossian’s new Scottish Champions!

Salle Ossian delivers regular fencing sessions at a number of schools in Perthshire. Fencing is a great sport to introduce kids to during PE classes or as part of the curriculum as they have done at Strathallan School. For the first time ever, this year Strathallan won the Scottish Schools Championships. If you’d like to know more about getting fencing up and running in your school, do get in touch.
