Tournaments, Referee Clinic and USA Fencing Membership
We have a home tournament coming up on August 20th! There are youth and teen/adult events! I know a lot of our young fencers get apprehensive about tournament some times. It’s not too different from having soccer practice then doing a soccer game. It’s just a game!
Go ahead and pre-register online now! You can view the tournament schedule here as well as links to the tournament registration: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MqXR3vqBczR10rnSajyHm0LQuR5huH1s/view?usp=sharing
Also if you’re new to registering for events on AskFRED or just have never done it before, we put together a little instructional about using AskFRED: https://allamericanfencing.com/using-askfred
USA Fencing Membership Renewal
**Important!! I’ve mentioned this before, please remember to renew your USA Fencing Membership. This is a requirement for all students at USA Fencing member fencing clubs. For information about how to renew, please visit: https://allamericanfencing.com/renew-your-usa-fencing-membership/ Thank you to everyone that has completed it!
We would encourage all our teens and adult fencers who might be interested in doing the referee clinic. You’ll learn more about how you fence and how the referee sees you. You’ll strengthen your ability to referee during club. Referees can earn ratings too! I also typically hire our high school fencers to help referee our youth events! Several of our fencers have taken Lisa Campi-Sapery’s online referee class and have earned our referee rating in foil. Our youngest fencer to take the class and pass all the test was 13 years old! Learn more and register for the referee clinic here: https://askfred.net/Clinics/moreInfo.php?clinic_id=50958 It is an online clinic.
