To all fencers participating:

  • Please make sure you arrive at least 30 minutes before your start time to check in with the teacher and Director of Tournament (DT) to get your name marked off.
  • Bring your SBHS tracksuit jacket and wear the SBHS soccer sock on your back leg. You should have a full length white sock on your front leg (no exposed skin) when fencing.
  • Besides your uniform and gear, also bring a towel, water bottle and healthy snack to recharge between matches.

We wish our fencers all the best for the events this weekend!

Please contact Mr Huynh if there are any issues or questions and email him if you aren’t able to make the event or running late.

Attention all Squad Fencers – NSWFA Membership Details

Thank you to the Squad Fencers who have already provided me with their NSWFA membership details. For those who have yet to complete this task (I am addressing the year 12s and seniors in particular as they may have been distracted from this task during the exam period last term):

Please make sure you pay for the NSWFA ‘Junior Participative’ membership ASAP ($50) as I will need your membership number when I register fencers for NSWFA individual and team competitions.

You can register for the membership here:

Once you have done so, please complete this Google Form so I can collect all Squad Fencers information for NSWFA competitions in one place:

The Senior Roberta Nutt Competition is on this Saturday so I will need to collect your details ASAP and by Wednesday 9am at the latest.

Removal from the competition and burpees may apply for those who fail to comply.
