Home Games (at WAY)

We are Connecticut's premier tournament facility with nine Olympic full-length [grounded] strips. Built from the ground up to accommodate all levels for Division qualifiers, USFA sanctioned and non-rated [beginner] tournaments.

We host tailored events that improve students ability, build confidence, and push emotional boundaries setting the "stage" for more challenging regional tournaments.  Further, we feel it is equally our responsibility to help educate parents and support them in their child journey.

All eligible WAY members are to register and using the links below so we know to plan for you.

Away Games Including Regional and National

Competing outside of your home club locally and on a regional/national level is not for everyone nor is it required, however doing so accelerates your learning and training and puts you on track to compete at progressively higher levels hopefully culminating to play in the NCAA and make fencing a sport for life.

Below are some recommended regional events. I want to remind parents that these listed competitions are serious and challenging. You will expect and be prepared for some early morning events, local traveling, owning and maintaining complete USFA uniform and electrical gear, and not to mention witnessing some intimate crushing defeats at the hands of fencers that are more experienced. The silver lining is that when you continuously study, train, and apply this craft you will get better results. We like to say after each competition you either win or you learn.
