Since 2013, we have led the effort to increase fencing awareness and participation in the USA.
What TURN THE LIGHT ON BY:
- Bringing the sport of fencing and its innate life lessons to inner city and rural schools through in-school (PE) and after-school programs.
- Sending our athlete ambassadors to share their Olympic journeys with children who have never seen a pro-athlete before.
- Providing masks, jackets and foils to schools with minimal PE budgets who cannot afford to buy equipment for a new sport.
- Training teachers to understand fencing and teach a full unit on the sport.
