Updates and Tournaments!
The AAFA is growing! Did you know there is a knew youth class that meets on Thursday? Coach Gabe is leading a different class of kids. Now when we do a home event, you may not know all your fellow All-American Fencing Academy youth teammates!
Welcome back to school everyone! Congrats to all our seniors this year! Good luck on all your scholarship and college applications. If you would like a recommendation from me, let me know! If I remember correctly, Elinor, Lilly, Caleb, Reagan, and camp manager Grace are our seniors!
Our next home tournament is on September 10, 2022. It is only a teen/adult tournament. It’s separate men’s and women’s events, so it’s a great starter event. We’ll also pick our women’s and men’s team captain for this season! (We didn’t do it last year.)
