Congratulations to all the TMFC students, parents, staff and coaches. As we often say at the club, ’it takes a village’. We all know that you don’t win your medals at the tournament but through the day to day efforts and grind of the season. We know all our students, coaches and parents work extremely hard to make this all happen. Thank you!

Regardless of medals or not, we are very proud of the way all our students competed, supported each other and learned from the experience. It is only a true loss if you don’t learn something and our student’s are learning that often in defeat, the big lessons for long-term success can be found.

Pre-Season training begins the final week of July with 3-hour pre-season clinics (check our website: www.timmorehousefencing.com).

Sleep Away Camp: Aug. 10-18 the saber and foil students will be traveling to Cornell University for our first ever Sleep Away Training camp. We hope if you haven’t signed up already, that you will join us: https://www.timmorehousefencing.com/sleepaway

DATA CAVEATS:

  • Since USA Fencing’s website doesn’t have open API and results are no longer on ASKFRED, this data was entered manually. If you notice any errors, please let us know and we will update them! (If a club name is spelled differently, it will read it as 2 different clubs)

  • We only counted the first club that a student represents and not the secondary.

  • We counted the results of the club a student was representing at the time. So, if a student was representing club X in September and Club Y in May then the results in September would count towards Club X.

  • We combined clubs with affiliate locations into one club. So for example, Sheridan Fencing Academy which has a few different locations is counted as one club.

  • We only counted Y10, Y12 and Y14. Not Y8 or the Cadets that sometimes occurred at SYCS.
