The Athlete Council is composed of 9 or 10 athletes - one athlete representative for each weapon and gender (totaling 6), USOPC Athlete Advisory Council (AAC) Representative, USOPC AAC Alternate and one parafencing athlete. If a member of the AAC is elected to serve as a member of the USOPC AAC Leadership group, that member shall become an ex-officio member of the AAC.
If any athlete has a weapon-specific concern, problem, protest, or question, the athlete should contact their weapon representative which can be found by locating him or her below. Any issues in general should be sent to the athlete chair, Katharine Holmes.
Athlete Directors on the USA Fencing Board of Directors: Nzingha Prescod, Ben Bratton, Lauryn DeLuca and Katharine Holmes.
