National Fencing Club Youth Championships – SYC 2015-2016

Nellya Fencers, the powerhouse saber club based in Atlanta, GA won the National Fencing Club Youth Championships in 2015-2016 based on the total number of medals awarded in 14 Super Youth Circuit (SYC) tournaments. With 16 gold medals, 10 silver medals, 22 bronze medals and 84 medals in total, the club eclipsed another powerhouse saber club, the Manhattan Fencing Center, for the # 1 ranking. The Manhattan Fencing Center, with strong youth programs in saber and foil, finished the year at #2 with 75 medals in total after winning the Championships in 2014-2015 with 84 medals.  The New York Fencing Academy, a hard-charging epee club, with an extensive youth program came in at #3, after being a runner-up to the Manhattan Fencing Center in 2014-2015 with 66 medals in total.

In all, 203 out of 396 clubs or about half the clubs participating in SYCs made the ranking in 2015-2016 compared to 193 out of 346 clubs in 2014-2015. The Championships ranked all clubs by the total number of medals won by Top 8 fencers at SYCs held throughout the year. Details on the 14 SYCs held last year are provided in the table at the end of this post.

Please refer to our latest rolling medal count standings for the National Fencing Club Youth Championships for 2016-2017 which are updated within two days after each SYC.

Here’s how the overall medal table looked at the end of the 2015-2016 SYC season. While several Regional Cadet Circuit (RCC) tournaments were held at the same time as an SYC, the medal standings do NOT include medals awarded in cadet events. Readers are able to sort, filter or search the table.
