Southern Region Cadet Winton Team 2016

WHAT IS THE CADET WINTON?

The Cadet Winton is an annual inter-regional team event, held at Millfield School, Street, Somerset on the weekend of 17th and 18th December 2016 (date to be confirmed). There are teams of 3 or 4 fencers per weapon that form each Regional team. The winner is the Regional team with the most victories. There are also prizes awarded to the winning weapon team and top individual fencers.

The Cadet Winton is a fantastic opportunity for any young fencer to take part and represent the Southern Region. It offers a unique experience where fencers can fence within a supportive team and socialise with other fencers from different parts of the country. The event does not carry any ranking points, but is immensely popular with the fencers.

Fencers must be over 14 and under 18 on January 1st 2017.

The cost to the fencer for this event is approximately £80 each, which includes accommodation, meals on Saturday evening, breakfast and lunch on Sunday, but does not include transport.

The team is accompanied by the Team Manager, Weapons Coaches, Referees and Armourer. All officials have DBS clearance and at least one official is a qualified First Aider. The Team Manager is also BFA Team Manager trained.
