Starting January 26, 2023

Refereeing is an important role within the sport of fencing. They are needed at competitions to ensure matches are managed by competent individuals acting with integrity, dignity, and a high level of fairness. Referees are also integral to creating a safe experience for athletes, coaches, and spectators.  Learning how to officiate can have positive impacts for an athlete’s own fencing ability as well!
