Why Become a Fencing Official?

Without officials there are no competitions! The MFA is committed to growing a strong core of dedicated and knowledgeable officials to help ensure our fencers get the best experience possible.

The MFA is excited to offer its members 14 years of age and up the opportunity to take part in the Referee Development Program.

An in-depth training clinic is available twice a year (fall and spring). No previous experience required. This course will give you the basics on fencing rules and provide a better understanding of the sport itself.

We are also encouraging adults to take part and join the ranks as a Fencing Official or Armourer; it’s a fun way to be involved in the sport your child loves.
