By accepting selection to represent GBR at any European and World Championships you have already agreed to the British Fencing Codes of Conduct. Please act responsibly and sensibly and understand that we are one collective team and respect and support for your fellow team members is expected and reasonable. In addition every member of the squad is being supported by public funding and is expected to behave in a way that recognises the responsibilities that this brings. Funding to compete (whether from public or private sources) is not an entitlement and we owe it to everyone that contributes to our participation to act as professionals and role models for our sport.
Any breach of BF Code of Conduct may result in fines equivalent to any athlete subsidy paid by BF.
For this trip, athletes will be responsible for booking their flights to and from the event, ensuring that sufficient time is given to arriving at the meeting points. This includes taking any potential covid tests before the meeting takes place. BF will not be responsible for booking or changing any athletes flights for these championships. Due to the complexity of travel currently, we will be unable to advise on this area.
Please note any U18’s that needs chaperoning for travel please let us know and we will help to make arrangements where we can.
Other Travel Instructions
23kg will be enough for your fencing bag, providing you pack your fencing kit in your carry on case.
Do’s and Don’ts:
Athletes unable to travel from UK airports (eg athletes travelling from outside the UK) are permitted to choose to travel independently however they must not arrive on a later date or leave on an earlier date than the rest of the squad. Transfers need to be discussed with BF Head Office.
It is your responsibility to ensure your kit has the correct logos/patches and your equipment meets FIE standards.
A summary of the latest rule changes can be found here.
As part of the terms of the Leon Paul sponsorship arrangement, all athletes competing are required to wear a Leon Paul logo. This should appear on the back arm. For foilists and epeeists the logo patch should be sewn onto the back arm ideally above the GBR logo. Sabreurs will need to have their lames printed directly by Leon Paul. This can be done at any event where Leon Paul have a printing service or at the Leon Paul shop. Alternatively, you can contact email@example.com and they will send you patches to sew onto your lame jacket (you will need to specify the type of lame – eg lightweight).
Please note that NO logos of any description, other than the GBR national logo, should be on the breeches – the FIE rules changed in September 2019.
