Ages: 16+*

The athlete is “hooked.” Fencing is a lifelong endeavor and the individual may take on many roles within the sport. Older teens and adults who love the sport and want to continue as recreational fencers or competitive fencers may also get involved in other roles within the sport.

  • Fencing is part of an active lifestyle
  • Enjoy the sport and the social aspects of engagement
  • Desire to challenge oneself
  • Focus on technical training for continued development
  • Engagement with the organization as a volunteer, official, coach or mentor


*Note that the age ranges are a general guideline and by no means a primary factor to determine when an athlete should progress to the next stage. Progression will be dependent, in part, on goals, commitment and the age at which athletes are introduced to fencing.
