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 championships, 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.

UWW Fencing Camp
:: for Coaches and Fencers ::
This summer, right here in Wisconsin, will be a world-class fencing coach camp. We're holding the camp from June 15-19th in Whitewater on the campus of UW-Whitewater. This residential, three-weapon camp has been accredited by the USFCA.
Our teaching staff is tremendous! Here are just the smallest highlights of our instructors' resumes:
For foil, we'll have Mike Pederson, who's been a national coach for both the United States and Canada. In 2008 he led the US women's foil team to a silver medal in the Olympics.
In epee our lead instructor is Ro Sobalvarro. Ro has also been a national coach and led the women's epee team to Olympic bronze in 2012.
For sabre, we have our division's very own Eric Momberg and Mike Garrison. Eric is the fencing coach at Lawrence University, where he has produced 5 D3 All-Americans in his first year as head coach. Mike is the owner and head coach of Madison Fencing Academy, former UW-Madison coach, and 2010 Midwest Conference Coach of the Year.
If you are a coach, you don't want to miss this opportunity.
But the camp is not just for coaches! We have spots available for fencers as well, where you can gain invaluable experience and training as you work with the other attendees to sharpen your skills and learn from the best.

I hope to see you in June!
