Team Fencing

Team fencers: $165 monthly recurring 

Team fencers are over 10 years old and commit to fence at least once a week with the club. Team fencers have access to the fencing classes 5 days a week and are strongly encouraged to stay after class to the club for the open bouts at the club. 

Team fencers who compete are expected to fence at the Summer Nationals and, for the Cadet and Junior fencers, to participate also in the Junior Olympics. They must travel to regional and national tournaments in order to qualify and acquire experience. 

Lessons plans are available and fencers register for one to 2 lessons per week. This plan is for the whole season.

National competitive fencers must sign up for TFA’s annual membership and represent TFA as their primary club affiliation at USFA. This program creates national-level competitors in epee and saber. Fencers have an active training plan according to the tournaments they are training for and peaking for throughout the year. These fencers are serious about their sport and should plan on meeting at least 3 times per week, balancing school and tournaments!
