Check out this awesome article published last year in the Hartford Courant!! http://articles.courant.com/2013-01-25/community/hcrs-70101hc-statewide-20130117_1_foil-fencers-introductory-class
And since the article was published, FVFA Alum Cody R. (now a Junior)
received a 4-year fencing scholarship to join NCAA's Division 1 Epee Fencing team at Sacred Heart U. in Fairfield, CT (http://www.sacredheartpioneers.com/sports/m-fenc/2014-15/bios/richard_cody_a72e) and FVFA Fencer and High School Senior Hannah B. of West Hartford was recruited by NYU's NCAA Fencing Team! Another
great reason to have your child try fencing... if they end up loving it, you never know what good things might come!
