Priority on Youth Tournament Series Back Underway!

After a two season hiatus, the Priority on Youth Tournament (POY) Series is back! POY has evolved into supporting all youth Olympic fencing weapons as well as being a formal way to training coaches, referees, armorers, and tournament operations staff.
The 2022-2023 season will feature five tournaments. December 3rd-4th is our next scheduled event. Registration is here. After each event we compile the results and will update the Priority on Youth Points List -- go to our blog to check out more information!

Slowly we are upgrading and improving the FORGE ProShop. We anticipate by Black Friday we will be rolling with online shopping too. The supply and demand chain has forced us to explore a variety of vendors and this includes Coach Jeff, who is now using his love for building things ... into building fencing weapons. Jeff's built items will for sure be a hot item this holiday season! 

The competitive fencing season starting out as HOT as the weather this fall. Matthew CHAVES attended his first Div I NAC in October finishing 77th(!!!). Tyson DECK earned his D rating and Elina WUNNUNA her E rating and all three, plus a full team, look to the Junior Olympic Championships in February.

Our Y-14 girls are ones to watch as they come out of the pandemic and gain much-needed competitive experience. FORGE is enjoying rebuilding our national competitive team and expanding with foil and epee within the next two years!
RYDER CUP IS BACK! This year we will host saber and epee for Cadets and Junior USA Fencing members.
