CJCFC India 2021 - Update

CFF have confirmed that the 2021 Junior/Cadet Championships event will be postponed to 24 to 30 August 2022, and held in New Delhi.

WF have asked if the age window for selection will be changed to reflect the postponement.  CFF have advised that the age criteria will not change for the CJCFC to be held in 2022.  CFF allow the Juniors, Cadets or Combined Juniors/Cadets to be held every 3 or 4 years. They do not change the age criteria whether the event is held every 3 or 4 years.

A huge thank you to everyone who took their time to send in declarations of interest for the CJCFC 2021. We do not plan to continue this selection process following the postponement, but  we will re-start the whole process later in the year.

Current Status - Wales

24 February Update

On 22nd February the PM announced the roadmap to ease lockdown restrictions.

This was followed by the publication of the ‘COVID-19 Response – Spring 2021’, setting out the roadmap out of the current lockdown for England.

BF followed this by announcing their roadmap, designed to tie in with this: https://www.britishfencing.com/roadmap_for_easing_of_restrictions/

Once the First Minister has announced the equivalent roadmap for Wales, we will issue a similar roadmap detailing our 'Return to Fencing Plan for Wales'.

16 January Update

Still in lockdown, there is no change to the Welsh Fencing guidance, shown below.

Welsh Government Update: https://gov.wales/first-minister-stay-home-save-lives

The status in Wales is different from that across the rest of the UK.  You cannot apply the current status in England to fencing in Wales.

There is currently no fencing sparring and no traditional fencing lessons. Risk assessments must be in place and BF membership is required. Please forward your completed risk assessment to the Board for review (send to mark.ridsdale@welshfencing.org).

BF have provided sample risk assessments here: BF Resources

Please note that you risk voiding your insurance cover if you contravene any of these requirements.

We have worked with a local supplier, Olorun Sports, to design a bespoke set of kit that reflects the Welsh national colours of green and red. The aim is to give all members a clearer identity as Welsh fencers.
