In this section of the website we will be collating resources designed to support clubs as they create their own Return to Fencing Plans. These resources are intended to be sufficiently generic to be adapted by clubs in accordance with local government and (when they open) indoor facility operators.
If having read the guidance you have any questions please fill out this form.
If you have any views on additional resources which would be useful (or are willing to share any of your own best practice resources to the wider fencing community) please email email@example.com.

Session Attendance and Safety Checks
Clubs must record and retain all session attendances for a minimum of 21 days and make all efforts to support NHS test and trace (or any Home Nation equivalent)
Before starting any session the coach or COVID-19 session officer must undertake a session risk assessment which must be retained. The Safety Check Summary Sheet above is one example of how this can be recorded.
