  1. Why fence poster
    This is a very popular poster created by the Valladolid Cub de Esgrima in Spain that shows the benefit of fencing. You can download the pdf here. If you would like to create one with your club information send us an email with your logo and contact information.
  2. Fencer Visit
    Group visits to another club in the network for one or two weeks to train together and get to know another region, country or culture. If the fencers are minors they should be accompanied by an authorized coach or parent in a minimum ratio of 1 adult per 8 minor students. The goal is to minimize cost, so the host club should try to provide accommodation in local volunteer fencing families. It would be ideal if the visit coincides with a local competition where the visiting fencers could participate.
  3. Volunteer Coach
    A Coach visits another club to exchange experiences, improve language skills or simply help promote fencing in the area as a volunteer. It is a volunteer activity so the visiting Coach will not be employed and or paid. The goal is to minimize cost, so the host club should try to provide accommodation in local volunteer fencing family, facilitate transportation and minimize any other incremental cost for the Coach.

  5. High School Hosting with AFS
    GFN has a non-exclusive agreement with AFS Intercultural programs (www.afs.org) to promote the international exchange of High School students that are also fencers and would like to study a semester or full year abroad. The goal is to ensure the student stays at a fencing family and can continue training while completing a year of High School in a foreign country. AFS has 70+ years of experience and is present in many countries, but there is not a 100% match with GFN countries. You can always replicate the program with other organizations if the program is not available in your country.
