(Colorado Springs, Colo.) – USA Fencing is pleased to announce the launch of a new membership and event registration platform that will go live in late March.

The new USA Fencing membership platform will serve as the online location to become a USA Fencing member, manage athlete and club profiles and register for national and international events. All current profiles will be transferred to the new database.

Among the features that the new platform will include is the option for parents to manage multiple children through one login and register multiple athletes for the same event in one transaction without logging in to each fencer’s profile. The platform also will house tournament history and results for all members.

Created by Designsensory, the platform will feature a responsive design which easily adapts from mobile to desktop.

“We are thrilled to be able to support our membership with this new and improved system,” said Bob Bodor (Colorado Springs, Colo.), USA Fencing Senior Manager of Membership Services. “It is user-friendly, reliable and has the versatility to meet our members’ needs. It is a very exciting time for the membership and for USA Fencing.”

With clients across the United States, including Boy Scouts of America and Outward Bound, Designsensory works with brands across industries such as tourism, economic development, e-commerce, healthcare and higher education.

“We say ‘Strong brands deliver moments that empower. We help grow strong brands,’” said Brandon Rochelle (Knoxville, Tenn.), the executive technical director and co-founder of Designsensory. “With deep specialization in both the design and development worlds, we seek to make platforms that are both functional and inspiring. I’m delighted to be able to offer this technology to our sport.”

A fencer himself, Rochelle is familiar with the sport and has been active in fencing for the past two decades, both as an athlete and as the chair of bout committees at local, regional and national events.

More details on the platform launch and how to view your profile online as well as register for coming tournaments will be announced in the coming weeks.
