Fencing Singapore recently concluded an online referee educational seminar. We were privileged to have Dr Eyyad Maghayreh (Chairman of FCA Referee Committee), renowned FIE referees Ms Natalia Zhurvleva and Mr Mohamed Al Bakri Medhat. Over the span of 2 weekends, they enlightened our current referees with the FIE General Rules and discussed about the interpretation of calls made in Epee, Foil and Sabre.
The referee seminar was conducted through ZOOM over 2 weekends; 28-29 August and 5-6 September. A total of 50 plus participants attended the 4-days sessions. Through this, our referees have gained insightful knowledge on the latest in FIE general rules and weapon refereeing calls.
At the conclusion of the sessions, Dr Maghayreh, Ms Natalia and Mr Medhat were pleased to have shared their experience and knowledge with our participants. They were happy to help solidify the next generation of referees.
This was the first online seminar of its kind organised by Fencing Singapore. We are grateful to the time and effort rendered by the presenters and would like to expressed our sincere appreciation to them. Our special appreciation goes to Dr Maghayreh who had helped put together this programme.
