As part of USA Fencing’s efforts to provide education and engagement opportunities for remembers, we’re introducing a monthly virtual speaker series covering a range of topics, many of which were identified in the Club Opinion Survey.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Fencing is happy to announce that beginning in September 2023 (this month!), we will be hosting a monthly virtual speaker series as part of the efforts to continue to provide educational and engagement opportunities for our members. 

In the Club Opinion Survey from late 2022, USA Fencing asked what topics would be of most value for continued education and based on the feedback in that survey multiple topics were identified. Those topics include mental training, strength and conditioning, and goal setting. 

We also asked in the final assessment of the Foundations of Fencing course about continued education topics or sessions, and we will work to incorporate those ideas into programming for later sessions. 

The sessions over the next four months are open to any USA Fencing member. In the coming months, be on the lookout for additional topics that will be covered from January through July of 2024 as we work to integrate membership recommendations.

The Speaker Series virtual event will be hosted on the third Thursday of each month, with topics already outlined throughDecember. The first session is Sept. 21 and covers mental training with Dr. Justin Tausig.

Be on the lookout on social media each month for more details about the speaker for the month.

Register here for the September session. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
