Hi to All,

The first tournament of the 2019-2020 San Bernardino Division fencing tournament season will be Saturday, September 21, 2019, at College of the Desert.

The San Bernardino Division tournament fencing schedule has been posted to You may pre-register for all tournaments.

We are still awaiting word from UCR as to their ability to host the December and April tournaments. We should know by the end of September.

As a reminder, for qualifiers for Junior Olympics and Summer Nationals, the fencers must be USFA members and members of the San Bernardino Division. Out-of-Division fencers may not participate in our qualifiers.

Please make sure your USFA membership is current and you have your card with you to present at the time of check-in. This speeds up signing in when you come to our events.

Looking forward to seeing everyone.
