NSWFA School Team Championships Starts this Saturday 22/06/19

The NSWFA School Team Championships start this Saturday for all weapons.

Teams are selected from Squads and will be announced at training this week for the first match this weekend.

Please check the School Competitions page for the official NSWFA documentation on fixtures and start times.

The SBHS Fencing Google calendar has also been updated to reflect the information that NSWFA has provided.

Please note: Senior Epee Team has only one weekend of competition (Sat 22/06/19) while Sabre and Foil teams have a total of 4 Saturdays of fencing for the NSWFA School Team Championships. Due to a lack of competition, we will not be entering a Junior Epee Team.

Please contact me if there are any issues or questions.
