Rolling National Fencing Club Championships – USA Fencing National Tournaments

Welcome to our rolling National Fencing Club Championships for the 2016-2017 USA Fencing National Tournament season. The Championships rank all clubs by the total number of medals won by Top 8 fencers at National Tournaments held throughout the year. The National Tournaments include North American Cups (NACs), Junior Olympic Fencing Championships (JOs), USA Fencing Championships and the July Challenge. The full schedule of National Tournaments is provided in the table below the rolling medal count standings. Medal count standings for the tournaments are updated within two days after each tournament. The final championships will be announced after the Salt Lake City, UT Summer Nationals in July 2017.

The rolling medal count includes the 2017 Division 1/Division 1 Team/ Wheelchair National Championships and April NAC  (Veteran, Veteran Team, Division 2 and Division 3) tournament held in Baltimore, MD 21st April – 24th April, 2017. The recent National Championships and NAC in Baltimore consisted of 64 events including four Division 1 Team and six Veteran Team events. The 54 individual events included 30 individual veteran events and six wheelchair events. The remaining 18 individual events comprised a Division 1, Division 11 and a Division 111 event for each gender-weapon category.

The Manhattan Fencing Center, the powerhouse saber and foil club located in Midtown Manhattan, maintains its #1 ranking after the recent tournament in Baltimore, MD with an overall medal count of 56, including eight gold, six silver, and twelve bronze medals. Last year the club finished the season ranked #2 as illustrated in the accompanying post: National Fencing Club Championships for USA Fencing National Tournaments 2015-2016.

The New York Athletic Club takes # 2 ranking with 55 medals including twelve gold, nine silver, and 13 bronze. The New York Athletic Club (NYAC), with its long and proud fencing history, finished 2015-2016 at #3 with 10 gold, 8 silver, 13 bronze and 50 medals in total. Over the years, the NYAC fencing team has been populated with Olympians, with six in 2012 and five in 2016. (Katharine Holmes, Courtney Hurley, Kelley Hurley, Jason Pryor and Katarzyna Trzopek)

With the ‘merger’ of Empire United Fencing and the Fencers Club, the “new” club takes #3 ranking with 54 medals, including eleven gold, eight silver, and eleven bronze. The Fencers Club finished in 5th place last year without the help of its new partner but would have sat atop the rankings if the ‘merger’ had taken place before years end.

Details on all medalists from the Top 10 ranked clubs can be found by clicking the name of the club in the following table. In all, 236 or 47% of the 501 clubs participating in National Tournaments so far this year, had a Top 8 fencer. In all, 81 clubs won gold, 104 claimed silver and 140 won bronze. Here are the overall medal count standings at the end of the eighth National Tournament for the 2016-2017 season (Div 1 & Div 1 Team & Wheelchair, Div 11, Div 111, Vet Open & Age Group, Vet Team). Please note, the medal standings do NOT include medals awarded in team events, but include all other events including Veteran, Wheelchair, Div 1, Div 11, Div 111, Junior, Cadet and Youth events.

Readers are able to sort, filter or search the table. In certain instances, state rankings are possible by placing the state abbreviation in the search box, e.g., TX for Texas. The table lists 100 clubs.

Source: National Fencing Club Rankings based on an analysis of USFA website data. Medal counts for unattached or unknown club affiliations are excluded from the analysis. The total number of medals by place is further affected by events with less than eight participants and tied results apart from third place. In the case of college fencers, we assigned the fencer’s club immediately before they entered college or a new club, which they may have joined while in college. In no case did we use the college or university representations. In the case of overseas students attending a college in the USA, we have used the college as the club. Our rationale for adopting this approach is explained in part by reading the material in USFA’s Athlete Handbook relating to collegiate or scholastic fencers.
