  • United States Fencing Association


    The United States Fencing Associations(USFA) is a nonprofit corporation that hosts fencing competitions and coaching sessions around the nation. Founded in 1891, it began with two fencers who wanted to break away from the Amateur Athletic Union. It grew from there and now stretches across the nation, from coast to coast.

    Membership is available for all ages. USFA has competitions open to children, veterans and fencers of all ages. Membership is sold based on the fencing status.
