GGFC’s Club Training level is designed for athletes who love the sport but choose to continue at a level focused on fun, socialization and local competition. 


Club Training is a gateway to lifelong participation in fencing. The US Olympic Committee American Development Model recognizes that not all athletes are interested committing to a competitive based track. Instead, many athletes want to participate in other sports, develop for personal achievement, focus on the health aspects of sport and compete for challenge and fun of it.


The Club Training level offers all that! It provides the maximum flexibility for training and offers the opportunity to train with high performance, competitive fencers.
