Rules, Requirements, and Costs

(All checks, unless stated otherwise, are to be made out to Head Coach Amber Davis)


1.      USFA Membership – due 2 weeks from the first practice.

The completed form, a stamped envelope, and check or credit card payment (checks are made payable to “USFA” NO CASH) are to be turned in to Head Coach Amber Davis.


This form can be found on the NHFC website as well as the USFA website.


2.      Order a fencing glove – must be ordered 2 weeks from the first practice.

This is the only piece of equipment that the fencer is required to purchase.  If a fencer wishes to order equipment they can order on their own or through the club from companies which offer club discounts.


3.      Medical form – due 2 weeks from the first practice.

No student will be allowed to do anything involving blades until these three requirements have been met.


4.      Club Dues ($50) are due no later than the first practice in January of the current school year.   


5.      Fundraisers – Participation is mandatory – We will have 1-2 fundraisers per school year selling candy and/or fudge.

We will be selling either fudge or candy bars.  Fencers and their families can opt out of selling fudge or candy by paying $30 for that fundraiser.


6.      Attendance

Will be taken at every practice

In order to be eligible for a spot on the competition team a fencer cannot miss more than 2 practices per month without a medical excuse.  Instruction will be intensive; those who cannot meet the attendance requirement will not be up to competition level.  Also, it is unfair to those students who do regularly attend practices to have to compete for competition team spots with those who have not shown similar dedication.


7.      Transportation

Students should always have a ride home from practice.  Coming to practice and asking around for a ride home is not acceptable.  Parents must be on time to pick up their children.  The coaching staff are volunteering their time and do not have time to wait with students for rides home.  However, if there are no other groups in the facility at the end of fencing practice we cannot leave the fencers on their own outside.  Therefore it is imperative that those picking up the fencers be on time.
