Tim Morehouse Autobiography



OUR BIG GOAL: 1 Million Students Fencing in the USA by 2023

Fencing in the Schools mission statement, “Empowering youth to achieve excellence through the sport of fencing” will be carried out by bringing the sport of fencing to schools around the country to fight childhood obesity, instill the Olympic ideals and improve educational opportunities.

Fencing in the Schools was founded in 2011 by Olympic Silver Medalist and Teach For America alum Tim Morehouse so that he could provide children with the same opportunities and benefits that he had from the sport.

During the 2013-2014 school year, over 10,000 students across 7 states will be participating in the introductory fencing school program that includes an assembly by a member of the US Olympic Fencing team, training for a schools teacher to teach a one month unit on fencing, fencing equipment and ongoing support.
