The FVFA Foil Team is a new 2008-2009 program for competitive foil fencers (boys and girls) and is by invitation only (if I feel you qualify to be part of the Team, you will be contacted directly).  Fencers on the team must be willing to: train hard (absolute minimum 2x a week), attend USFA competitions (both at FVFA and at other fencing clubs)--both alone or with teammates--during the current season, have a good pro-active attitude, be able to put fencing at a higher priority than other activities, and, obviously, be able to represent FVFA as their primary fencing club at competitions.  This is currently the highest level program at FVFA for competitive foilists.  There are no age restrictions, but a certain level of maturity is key to be part of the team.  IF YOU DO NOT LIKE TO OR WANT TO COMPETE, THE TEAM IS NOT FOR YOU.


Visitors and guests welcome anytime during class and open fencing hours
