NCAA College Fencing Recruiting
Get Recruited to Fence in College
We can help you get recruited for NCAA fencing. Our website is full of information and resources to help guide you through the fencing recruitment process.
A good place to start is the Fencing Scholarships Statistics and Information page.
You might be the best fencer at your school, but if you’re not in the top 3 percent, then don’t expect the NCAA fencing coaches to offer you a fencing scholarship. You have to make it happen and apply to as many colleges as possible. This is where we come into the picture. We will prepare a professional resume on your behalf and send it to every NCAA fencing coach in Division I and II. We can also send your athletic profile to NAIA colleges as well.
Remember, you won’t make your dream come true if you don’t do everything you possibly can to get recruited. You must have a detailed professional athletic resume prepared, and you must get it into the hands of the NCAA fencing coaches.
We do this for you. It’s fast, efficient, and above all, it allows you to compare offers from many different colleges.
The NCAA conducted the first fencing championships at Northwestern University in 1941. In addition to individual championships for men in foils, epee, and sabre, there were team weapons championships, which determined the winner of the overall team championship.
The National Fencing Coaches Association (NFCA) of America was formed in 1948. In 1951, the NCAA championship results were used to select an All-American team. Awards were made retroactive to 1941.
Women’s fencing was added as a separate sport in 1982, with individual competition only in foils, along with a team championship.
Since 1990, there has been a single fencing championship meet, with the team championship based on combined men’s and women’s events. Women’s epee was added in 1995, and the women’s sabre competition was added in 2000. The meet usually takes place in mid- to late March.
