(Colorado Springs, Colo.) – In addition to honoring 24 members of the fencing community, beginning in the 2018-19 season, the USA Fencing Spirit of Sport Program will name one annual winner.
After the fourth quarter winners have been announced, a selection committee will name the top selection in each region from the pool of 24 winners named throughout the season. The fencing community will then select the winner from the final six in an online vote available to the entire USA Fencing membership.
The overall winner will receive a plaque and will be honored at the USA Fencing National Championships and July Challenge in Columbus, Ohio.
Entering its third season, the USA Fencing Spirit of Sport Program recognizes athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers who exemplify exceptional commitment and dedication, respect, teamwork and inclusion, passion, sportsmanship and character.
Each quarter, one member from each of the six regions is honored. The deadline for the first quarter is 11:59 p.m. ET on Monday, Oct. 15.
