Our mission is to educate the community about the modern Olympic Sport of Fencing, in particular Epee Fencing. We also endeavor to train individuals of all ages to succeed at the sport. We train to win.
Bay State Fencers coaches are professionally trained in the United States and Eastern Europe and are committed to supporting fencers as they work to achieve their individual competitive and athletic goals. We do this by fostering the principles of respect, patience, and competitive spirit.
The following principles help us to measure the appropriateness of our decisions:
EDUCATION: To provide coaching and training that meets the highest standards of excellence and follows the precepts of the United States Fencing Association and to foster the development of fencers as people, athletes and competitors.
SPORTSMANSHIP: To provide a friendly and supportive club and academy environment where coaches, members and students always demonstrate good sportsmanship, respect and patience.
INNOVATION: To maintain an exemplary training facility of the highest standards and offering classes and programs that provide unique opportunities for fencers to seek and fulfill their potential.
COMMUNITY: To develop and maintain an enthusiastically satisfied community at all times. We believe that it takes a village to raise a child, and all of our adult members are expected to participate in teaching our students to be great people first and great athletes second.
