The USFCA website can be accessed in three different "modes."
- General Public
- Registered Website user
- USFCA Member
When you access the website and have not registered (or do not log in, if you're a registered user or member), you're using the "General Public" mode. This gives you access to a wealth of information about the USFCA, its registered coaches and clubs, the accrediation process, coaching information and other topics.
If you register as a user, you will have access to all this, plus some additional information and the ability to subscribe to USFCA electronic newsletters & notfications.
The really good stuff is available when you join the USFCA as a member. Upon logging in as a member, you will have access to numerous articles about coaching and fencing, archived copies of The Swordmaster and Point In Line magazines, and the ability to post your own information on the "Find a Coach" list. This list makes it easy for prospective students to find you and to see your certification with the US Fencing Coaches Association.
When you register as a Website User, you will be asked for some information about yourself, so that we can maintain accurate demographics.
To enroll as a USFCA Member, you must first register as a website user. Then go to the online Membership page (in the menu), and follow the instructions there.
