US Fencing Coaches Association Membership

One of the core benefits of membership in the Coaches Association is the opportunity to become certified, or increase your certification level. The USFCA examines and certifies coaches at the four levels recognized internationally by the Academie d'Armes International (AAI) and its member organizations. This program is supervised by the Certification and Accreditation Board, consisting of Fencing Masters elected by other member Fencing Masters. The USFCA certification program provides the fencing coach or teacher a measurement of his or her knowledge and ability through an examination process and certification program.

Certification is granted to individual coaches on four levels: Assistant Moniteur, Moniteur, Prévôt, and Fencing Master. Furthermore, the USFCA offers coaches' clinics, specialized training and continuing education.

For more information about the certification levels and examination process, click here.

US Fencing Coaches Association Education

You'll have access to an archive of thesis papers from previous Masters candidates and continuing education opportunities through a series of in-person clinics and events. The USFCA hosts both national and regional coaching clinics, featuring many of the top coaches and professionals from the US and around the world.

Additionally, USFCA members (including those who join at the clinic) will be awarded CEU credits for their time spent at the clinic.
