The AFF and NSWFA are delighted to advise that registrations are now open for the 2017 Asian Cadet Circuit event for Boys & Girls Sabre, to be held in Sydney on 2 & 3 September 2017.

This event forms part of the inaugural Asian Cadet Circuit being introduced by the Fencing Confederation of Asia (FCA) in 2017. Further details of the event are provided in the online invitations (click here).

All Australian fencers who wish to compete in this event will need to obtain a FCA licence through the AFF - to purchase a licence, click here. To register to enter the event, click here. Standard registrations close on 25 August 2017.

Fencers who wish to participate in the team event should note that selections will be made in accordance with the AFF Selection Policy, which states that the team will be selected based on registrations received 30 days prior to the event (ie by 2 August 2017). For this purpose, the Asian Cadet Circuit will be treated as a Category E event.

The AFF is seeking nominations from athletes who are interested in representing Australia at the 2017 Oceania Senior Fencing Championships. The Championships will be held in Auckland, New Zealand from 21 to 23 October 2017 - the full schedule will be made available once it has been released.

The Oceania Senior Championships represents a developmental opportunity for Australian fencers who are seeking to gain additional experience of international competition. In previous years, participating countries have included New Zealand, New Caledonia and French Polynesia.

There is no limit to the number of Australian athletes who may attend this event and Australia is permitted to enter one team in each of the team events. Fencers are encouraged to consider (and discuss with their coaches) whether this event is appropriate for them at their current stage of development. 

The Oceania Senior Championships competition will attract AFF ranking points in accordance with Appendix A of the AFF Selection Policy (click here).

The tour staffing arrangements will be determined once the composition of the team is known. General information about tour costs can be found on the website (click here) under "International Competitions and Trips".

Nominations will close on Wednesday, 26 July 2017. To nominate for this event, click here.  To see who has already nominated, click here.

Registrations are now open for the third Australian Fencing Circuit event of 2017 - AFC#3, incorporating the Australian Under 23 Sabre Championships. 

This event will be held at the NSW State Fencing Centre in Sydney from 25 to 28 August 2017.

A preliminary timetable is attached which shows the date and starting time slot (morning or afternoon) for each event - the specific starting times for each event will be published one week before the competition, following the close of standard registrations. This approach is being trialled in an effort to ensure the most efficient use of piste space and reduce waiting time between events.  

Before registering, Australian fencers should make sure their home State affiliation is complete and paid up. Late registration fees apply from 12 August 2017, so be sure to register early! 

To register for entry (both local and overseas fencers), click here.

The AFF is pleased to provide intial information about the Coach Designated Tours for 2017/18.

The Coach Designated Tours are compulsory for members of the High Performance Program in each relevant age category, but are also open for participation by non-HPP fencers. 

The attached documents set out the preliminary plans for each tour, separated by HPP age category and weapon group. Fencers should ensure they download the information for the tours they are interested in. Further information about the tours can be obtained from the contacts listed in the documents.

Information about the remaining tours will be added to the website as plans for these tours are finalised. Preliminary details of the Cadet, Junior and Open tours for Men's Epee and Women's Epee are expected to be added in the coming week. 

Fencers who are considering participating in the tours should note the "Fees and Charges" information on the AFF website (click here), together with the Operational Protocols on Selection (click here) and Tour Costs (click here).

A further announcement will be posted when registrations for each tour open.

Registrations are now open for the 2017 Australian Schools Individual Fencing Championships. This event will be held at Yeronga High School in Brisbane on 12 and 13 August 2017 (see timetable attached).

The individual competitions for this event are divided into two age categories - Intermediate (for fencers in the first 3 years of secondary school) and Senior (open to any school student). Each State is permitted to nominate a maximum of eight fencers in each event, and each fencer is only permitted to compete in one event.

A State-based team event is run after the individual event. Each State is permitted to enter one team per age category for each weapon/gender, with the team made up of the individual fencers nominated for that event. All members of each team need not be from the same school.
