Are you a male fencer with prior high school / club experience?

The Cornell Men’s Fencing team is the competitive counterpart to the Women’s NCAA team. Besides practicing alongside the women’s team five days a week, we also travel to MACFA league tournaments and participate in the USACFC championships in April.

Although we prefer you to have prior experience, you don’t have to be the best out there. We usually start the season off with light pre-season practice before the start of the season in October.
