Membership in USA Fencing

This is a friendly reminder that everyone who fences at a club must have some sort of membership from USA Fencing. Please see the membership page on the USA Fencing website.

Print out your USFA Membership Card and bring it to tournaments!

The national office will no longer mail out the membership ID cards except upon request and a $10 fee. It is a requirement of all North Texas Divison fencers to show their USFA Membership card at all tournaments. So print those cards or have the image of your membership card with the barcode saved to your smart phone.

Finding a fencing club

Please be aware that some university and high school fencing programs only allow those school's enrolled students to fence. It is a good practice to inquire with the larger fencing clubs about starting to fence or visiting a club for practice while out-of-town.
