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

The AFF is pleased to advise that second round nominations are now open for the 2017/2018 AFF High Performance Program (Cadet & Junior age categories). 

The High Performance program comprises the Australian Fencing Team and the Australian Fencing Squad). The 2017/18 year runs from 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018.

Second round nominations are available for all categories other than AFT Cadet Women's Epee, AFT Cadet Men's Epee, AFT Junior Women's Epee, AFT Junior Men's Epee and AFS Junior Men's Sabre.  

Fencers (and their parents) who are considering nominating for the HPP should carefully read the documentation contained in the 'High Performance Program' section of the AFF website (www.ausfencing.org). In particular, the AFS & AFT Athlete Agreement sets out the financial and other obligations which apply to fencers participating in the High Performance Program, while the HPP Annual Plan sets out the training and competition commitments required of fencers under the program. 

Membership of the Australian Fencing Team (AFT) comes with demanding training and competition requirements relevant to fencers aiming to compete at the highest international level (World Championships). The Australian Fencing Squad (AFS) offers a preparatory program to the AFT, which enables fencers to participate in HPP activities while following a slightly less demanding program.

Fencers who are interested in participating in the 2018 Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in Buenos Aires, Argentina should be aware that they will need to be members of the AFT for 2017/18 in order to pursue qualification for this event. This is because, under the YOG qualification system determined by the FIE, qualification is based solely on results achieved at the 2018 World Cadet Championships. Fencers are only eligible to compete in the YOG if they were born no later than 31 December 2003.

Fencers who wish to nominate for the 2017/18 Cadet & Junior AFT & AFS can do so by clicking here. You can see who has nominated already by clicking here.

Fencers who nominate for the AFT but are not selected will be taken to have nominated for the AFS (unless otherwise advised). Nominations close on 31 August 2017.
