National Fencing Club Championships for USA Fencing National Tournaments 2015-2016

The Los Angeles International Fencing Center (LAIFC), the powerhouse mega-club located at 11755 Exposition Boulevard, Los Angeles, won the National Fencing Club Championships for 2015-2016 based on the total number of medals awarded in USA Fencing National Tournaments. With 11 gold medals, 11 silver medals, 15 bronze medals and 59 medals in total, the club eclipsed another powerhouse club, the dual weapon Manhattan Fencing Center, for the # 1 ranking in 2015-2016, followings its rank of #5 in 2014-2015. With 18 strips in 12,000 square feet, LAIFC specializes in all three weapons. Last year, four of its fencers, Adi Thein-Sandler, Kasia Nixon, Justin Yoo, and Nikita Itkin completed in the 2016 Cadet/Junior World Championships in Bourges, France.

The Manhattan Fencing Center, the heavyweight Manhattan saber and foil club, finished the year at #2 with 4 gold medals, 7 silver medals, 13 bronze medals and 55 medals in total after finishing the previous year at #2. Home to the Olympic Silver Medalist, Dary Homer, Olympic Bronze Team Medalists Dagmara Wonziak and Monika Aksamit, the club has prepared more saber Olympians and National Team members than any other fencing club in the U.S. in the past ten years.

The New York Athletic Club (NYAC), with its long and proud fencing history, finished the year at #3 with 10 gold medals, 8 silver medals, 13 bronze medals and 50 medals in total. The NYAC fencing team had two Olympians in 2008, six in 2012 and five in 2016. (Katharine Holmes, Courtney Hurley, Kelley Hurley, Jason Pryor and Katarzyna Trzopek)

In all, 266 out of 613 clubs or about 43% of the clubs participating in National Tournaments made the ranking in 2015-2016. The Championships ranked all clubs by the total number of medals won by Top 8 fencers at National Tournaments held throughout the year. Details on the National Tournaments held last year are provided in the table at the end of this post.

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 influenced 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. 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.
