Do you know a fencer who exemplifies the true meaning of sport? We want to share his or her story with the fencing community. 

Beginning this November, USA Fencing will be selecting one recipient from each USA Fencing Region on a quarterly basis. This is not necessarily an award for talent but more to recognize an individual who has exemplified a commitment to the sport and his or her club. This could be a beginner, a veteran fencer returning to the sport after years away or an individual who has shown exceptional dedication and is an inspiration for others.

Nominations are due on the following dates:

  • Quarter 1 - November 15
  • Quarter 2 - January 15
  • Quarter 3 - April 15
  • Quarter 4 - June 15

To nominate someone, please click HERE.

Selections will be announced by the first of the following month. All selections will be honored at the 2017 Summer Nationals in Salt Lake City.

Recipients will receive:

  • USA Fencing Spirit of Sport t-shirt
  • USA Fencing Spirit of Sport Bag Tag
  • Recognition on USA Fencing website and social media channels
