About the Wisconsin Division
The Wisconsin Division of USA Fencing is the administrative body for fencing in Wisconsin. We're here to support, enhance, and develop the sport of fencing within the state and to support local tournaments.
Each year we hold qualifiers for the Div. 2/3 Championships, Y14 championshps, and the Junior Olympics.
If you're a fencing club, we're here for you. For example, we can help you find a coach or referee for your next event.
If you're interested in fencing, we can help you find a club and put you in touch with a certified fencing coach.

Wisconsin Division 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM)
The AGM will be held on Sunday, July 14, 2019 from 9:30 am to conclusion of business, at the Eagle School, 5454 Gunflint Trail, Fitchburg, WI 53711.
The past few years the AGM has lasted about 2 hours. This year we anticipate slightly more time to address more business at hand. We will be providing lunch to attendees.
Please let me know by July 7 if you will be attending the AGM. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The AGM is not mandatory to attend for division members, but we would encourage you to think about what you would like to see from the division in the next fencing season. For example, the division has in the past few years put on referee and armory clinics, as well as offered some travel reimbursements for competitors from our division who have qualified for national championship events. The AGM is also where Officers and Executive Committee (EC) members are elected.
The motions and all further communications to the Division will be through the Division website, and the bylaws in their entirety can be found at the division website: http://www.wifencing.com/. The sections relevant to the AGM are Articles VIII and IX.
If you have questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact Division Chair, Karyn Missimer or Vice Chair Michael Garrison.
