The Fencing Club of UW-Madison (FCUW) is a three-weapon, competitive Olympic fencing team. Our team consists of active members who train for and compete in USFA, Midwest Conference, and USACFC tournaments. No prior experience with fencing is necessary to join the team, but we do require a commitment of time and effort to learn the sport. Responsibilities of members include agreeing to attend practices, taking lessons from our coach, engaging in the strength and conditioning program, attending team competitions, seeking out and competing in USFA competitions, and conducting fundraising activities.

We accept new members at the beginning of each academic year. Experienced fencers may be allowed to join after this, on a case-by-case basis.
