Fencing

Are there tryouts for your team?
No, we do not require tryouts for our team.

How many days and hours/week do you practice?
We practice three times a week: Tuesday and Thursday from 6:30-9pm and Saturday from 3-6pm.

Where are your practices held?
Our practices are held at Russell Gym.

What schools do you compete against? What league you're in?
We are currently a member of the Southwest Intercollegiate Fencing Association (SWIFA), and we fence against teams from TAMU, UT, UNT, UTSA, Texas State, Rice, UH, and Texas Tech.

What are the dues for this club?
Dues are $50 a semester.

When is your season? Do you practice in the off-season?
Our season is year-round for the most part. We don't fence during the Christmas holidays, but we do fence during the summer.

Do students need experience to join?
We do not require experience. Most of the people in the club don't start fencing until they have joined the club. We also have a full armory, so we don't require students to have their own equipment.
