The WFA is a family-oriented environment, and fencing is a sport enjoyed by people of all ages. We work cooperatively with parents to ensure their children's fencing experience is very positive, and that the young fencers are challenged and coached according to their individual abilities.

We also have a "parents' advocate," Susan Comes, who has several WFA Fencers in her family. As a parent, she helps the club by sharing her perspective in our ongoing commitment to improvement and excellence.

In addition, USA Fencing has published a document specifically intended to inform parents about fencing as it pertains to their children. Click here for the information on USA Fencing's web site, as well as several other informative documents you may find of interest.
