Fencing Clubs in South Carolina    Updated Oct 2, 2017

The following is a list of participating USA Fencing Member Clubs within the State of South Carolina. Information is updated as it becomes available. Please inform the Division Secretary of any changes or additions that should be made.

The USA Fencing logo means that the club is a USA Fencing Full Member Club or Affiliate Club. Only USA Fencing Member or Affiliate Clubs can field teams at national level championships, hold Sanctioned events, and whose employees have completed the appropriate criminal background checks required to participate as a Member or Affiliate Club of USA Fencing.

Additionally, Member Clubs have legal liability insurance coverage for their specified location.

Other Clubs may be included on this page, but should be considered “recreational-only,” and should not be considered to have either the liability insurance, background checks completed, or privileges granted to USA Fencing Member or Affiliate Clubs. The South Carolina Division does not take responsibility for incidents held at non-member facilities, including those involving safety and compliance with USA Fencing regulations.
