We have always followed the guidelines required by the USA Fencing (the national governing body for fencing). But at this time, they have not set those protocols for the 2022-2023 season.
So for now, we will follow the guidelines that USA Fencing used at the National Championships this past July, which are: Breath masks are required to be worn upon entering the building and worn at all times, except when wearing their fencing masks during class or training.
If at some point USA Fencing changes their protocols, we will also change ours.
Students will be assigned jackets, masks, gloves, and foils, which will only be used by the student for the duration of the course- no sharing of equipment.
