Thankyou for your support of the Sport of Fencing in Australia.

Elite sport is inherently about excellence. The right to represent Australia at the Olympic Games and the World Championships (open and age) represents the pinnacle of elite sport, and as such is a privilege to be earned. The Selection System sets out the minimum criteria which must be satisfied in order for a fencer to be eligible for selection for these events. Fencers are encouraged to view selection as merely the first step in the process of achieving the performance goals they have set themselves, rather than an end in itself.

Contact Details

The Selection Commission may be contacted through the Chair of the Selection Panel via the email address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Sections 2.5 - 2.9 of the Selection Policy should be noted in this regard.

Process and Timing

The processes and timing of selections is documented both within the Selection Policy and the relevant Operational Protocol (see here).  Note also the fact that the Selection Policy is complemented by some operational processes regarding entry to overseas events (see here).

Interpretation

Please be aware that AFF staff and directors cannot provide information relating to the intepretation of any section of the Selection Policy.  It should also be noted that the Selection Policy is the sole and exclusive source of ranking point allocation - there is no other way to gain ranking points except through the Policy. There is no body or person within any part of the AFF that has the power to allocate ranking points outside of the mechanisms within the Policy.

Amendments to Selection Policy - April 2018

The AFF Board has approved amendments to the AFF Selection Policy which will come into effect on 9 April 2018.
 
The only amendment to the previous version of the policy (dated 12 March 2017) is to introduce a scaling factor for FIE Junior World Cup events. These events will now be subject to the same scaling factor as applies to Senior World Cup events ie based on the number of fencers earnign FIE points.
