Affiliation and Costs

Please read all information below regarding affiliation with FencingWA

FencingWA Membership ('Affiliation') is required to participate in most FencingWA events including the election of the Board and other processes that affect the direction of the sport of Fencing in Western Australia.  FencingWA also provides a number of important services, including:

  • Personal injury insurance should you incur medical expenses from an injury in fencing (including at Club level)

  • Training of coaches and referees to support competition and fencing development;

  • Promotion of fencing in order to grow our sport, create stronger competition, and support individual development;

  • Representation of the sport of fencing to the Western Australian Government, and to other sporting bodies such as the Western Australian Sports Federation, and WA Institute of Sport.  This includes seeking funding to further develop our sport through grants and sponsorship.

Please refer to the terminology below regarding affiliation:

  • State Fee: State Fees ( FencingWA Affiliation) are required to participate in State Events. 

  • AFF Capitation Fee: Capitation with the Australian Fencing Federation (AFF) is required to participate in national events including open Australian Fencing Circuit (AFC) events, cadet, Junior and Open Australian Championships. You cannot capitate to the AFF without affiliating to FencingWA.

  • Friends of Fencing: This is for volunteers/parents who just want to become members of FencingWA but not actively participate as fencers/coaches or referee's at state and/or national events. Insurance would only cover you as a Volunteer at official event.

All fees are payable for the calendar fencing year which runs from January to December each year (Your membership will run out on December 31st each year).  All fencers are strongly encouraged to join FencingWA and the AFF.  Both FencingWA and the AFF are run almost exclusively by volunteers, and greater participation leads to a stronger and more enjoyable sporting experience.
