Fencing SA can facilitate fencing programs within schools, and can tailor the program to suit a school's needs. Examples include:
Fencing equipment is required for a program, and is available to hire for short term courses. Schools that run ongoing programs are supported with a gradual buy-in process to purchase their own equipment.
All our coaches are nationally accredited (which includes WWCC).
We currently have programs at: Scotch College, Pulteney Grammar School, St Peters Boys Junior School .
Fencing programs have previously run at: Pembroke, St Johns, Marryatville HS, Prince Alfred College, Christian Brothers College, Heathfield HS, Urrbrae HS, Glenunga HS.

School Competitions have run in a variety of formats over the past 10+ years, providing a fun and encouraging environment for school fencers to experience a formal fencing competition.
FSA aims to run a school-specific individual and teams event at least once per year, but this may vary depending on the number of schools running a fencing program. School fencers are also able to enter other Fencing SA events (e.g. Under 13, Under 15, Under 17/20 - licence depending) once they have gained more confidence.
Eligible school age fencers from around Australia are invited to compete in boys and girls individual and school team competitions at the National Schools Championships. Separate tournaments are held for senior and intermediate aged fencers, with both usually run on different weekends in August in Sydney.
Recent notable SA results from Heathfield High were achieved in 2019 with National Senior Boys Epee Team GOLD, National Senior Boys Epee Individual GOLD SILVER and BRONZE, National Senior Boys Foil Team SILVER, National Senior Boys Individual Foil Bronze.
Fencing SA also provides pathways for fencers to attend Under 15, 17 and 20 National Championships.
