Help MSU Club Fencing Go To Regionals and Nationals

MSU Club Fencing is one of the oldest organizations on campus, with records in the MSU Archives dating back to the late-1800s. MSU fielded an NCAA team at regionals and nationals for many years before becoming a club sport. MSU was a foundational member of the USACFC and has hosted USACFC nationals three times. Last year, Spartan Fencers won trophies in four events at the Midwest Fencing Conference Regionals, and had two fencers finish in the top 16 individuals at USACFC nationals. Our club upholds the rich tradition of fencing at the college level, creating a welcoming space for both newcomers to the sport and experirenced fencers. We believe that fencing is a sport for everyone.

Your Support Will Make a Big Difference!

This fundraising campaign will fund six full squads traveling to Wisconsin for MFC Regionals and Indiana for USACFC Nationals. These two meets are the culmination of our entire season, which begins in September. For many athletes, this is an opportunity to see the hard work they’ve put into training come to fruition. We are proud to represent Spartan Excellence at the MFC Regionals and USACFC Nationals.

Project Budget

Our goal of $5,000 will send 30+ Spartans to Regionals and Nationals. Your donations will offset travel, housing, registration, armory, and other tournament costs for our team of 24 individuals, armorer, and four volunteer coaches to attend these meets. For many fencers, this will be their first major competition, and our goal is to make competition as stress-free as possible for our athletes.

Who We Are

The MSU Club Fencing Team has over 50 members, half of which participate in collegiate club fencing events. Our e-board and weapon captains work hard to ensure that the team creates an inclusive and welcoming environment for both casual and competitive fencers. Our competitive team is made up of one squad per weapon, per gender, for a total of 24 athletes at each event. We are led by our head coach, Ben Schleiss, and supported by three other volunteer coaches from the Michigan fencing community.
