November 10, 2018, 3-Weapon Tournament at Hemet High School

October 10th, 2018

Our San Bernardino Division has received inquiries/requests if we would consider hosting women only epee events.

This November 10, the Division did include a women’s only epee event, close of check-in at 11:00 a.m.

Then, we received requests if it would be possible to change the time to later in the day for the ladies who wanted to compete in the mixed epee event as well as the ladies only.

So we did.  Close of check-in for women only epee will be 2:00 p.m. with fencing commencing at 2:30 p.m.

August News for San Bernardino Division

August 14th, 2018

Hi to All,

The full tournament schedule for the San Bernardino Division is now posted on and you may pre-register on-line now.

If you are a foil fencer, the new USFA rule requiring the chest protector covering over the male/female chest protectors is mandatory at all tournaments, even Division tournaments.
Chest protectors will be checked, on strip, prior to the commencement of pool bouts and D.E.’s.

The first tournament of the season will be at College of the Desert on Saturday, September 15, 2018.

COD has some extensive re-building going on right now. Please enter COD via the Fred Waring entrance to avoid the construction and the Street Faire.

You may park in Parking Lot 5, right in front of the Gym.

Please make sure you have proof of current 2018-2019 USFA membership.

Looking forward to seeing you all!
