Why should you consider fencing for your child?
Fencing can help gain admission into some of the best universities. Because fencing programs exist at most of the United States' elite universities, a competitive fencer can have a shoe-in for college admissions. Often, athletic scholarships are available for students with a strong fencing background. Schools such as Harvard, Princeton, Yale, and the University of Pennsylvania seek out students with exceptional fencing skills to join their exclusive programs.
Why Manhattan Fencing?
Manhattan Fencing has been the number one feeder club to these universities. They are proud to announce that 66 of their own athletes went on to compete at highly selective universities including Brown, Cornell, Columbia, Duke, Harvard, Stanford, UPenn, Notre Dame, and Yale between 2015 and 2022. This incredible admissions track record combined with the character-building component of fencing ensures that athletes leave Manhattan Fencing with a well-rounded skill set for success in their future endeavors.
