In Victoria, the Australian Fencing Federation manages the High Performance Program foil squad activities.  This means that Fencing Victoria has no link to the administration of these squads, apart from providing priority strip hire at the State Fencing Centre.

Squad activities generally consist of some warm-up and footwork, following by bouting.  Squad times are 6:30pm ownards on Tuesdays, and 7pm onwards on Fridays.

For the sake of (financial) clarity, any athlete who engages in any of these activities with any squad member is also deemed to be part of the squad, as they are taking advantage of the process, structure, and resources of AFF squad training.  Any coach is invited to give lessons during the squad session, and the squad coach should – as a matter of courtesy – be advised of this beforehand.  There is no cost of strip hire for any squad member, nor for any coach giving lessons to any squad member.

The cost of the foil squad is absorbed into the billing process for Australian Fencing Team (AFT) and Australian Fencing Squad (AFS) members, as the squad is compulsory for those HPP members.

The cost for all non-AFT and non-AFS members for 2017 is as follows:
