Dunwoody Fencing Club selected as a USA Fencing Club of Excellence

The fencers, coaches and families of Dunwoody Fencing Club are honored to have been selected as a USA Fencing Club of Excellence!
Local clubs are the heartbeat of fencing — a place where creativity, care and community engagement shine. Each year, USA Fencing recognizes only five clubs across the nation through the Club of Excellence Program.
The USA Fencing Club of Excellence Program began in 2015 as a way to honor the outstanding work being done at the grassroots level to grow and sustain fencing. The program is an acknowledgment that every successful fencing journey begins when a fencer opens the door to their local club for the first time.
“Dunwoody Fencing Club is a highly competitive epee club that also welcomes recreational fencers,” head coach Kathy Vail says. “This is the first item that appears on our website and on our promotional materials. It’s a concise statement of who we are as a club. DFC is successful because we give our students all the tools that they need to develop as fencers, then allow them to use those tools to develop the individual strategy that best suits them.”
