Thankyou for your support of the Sport of Fencing in Australia.

The AFF invites all interested fencers to register for the following Coach Designated Tours in January 2018:

1) Cadet and Junior tours in Foil, Epee and Sabre, for Men & Women

2) the Open & U/23 Men's Epee Tours

The above Coach Designated Tours are compulsory for members of the High Performance Program (AFT only) in the relevant age categories for the 2017/18 cycle.

However, the tours are also open for participation by non-HPP fencers. 

The attached documents set out the preliminary plans for each tour, separated by weapon group. Fencers should ensure they download the information for the tour they are interested in. Further information about each tour can be obtained from the contacts listed in the documents.

Fencers who are considering participating in the tours should note the "Fees and Charges" information on the AFF website (click here), together with the Operational Protocols on Selection (click here) and Tour Costs (click here).

In order to nominate for the events which form part of the tour, you will need an FIE licence and/or an EFC licence for the 2017/18 international season (click here). This is not required immediately, however you will not be able to complete your tour registration unless all of the international representation pre-requisites have been completed (click here).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Nomination for the World Cup and EFC events that are part of these tours is an additional process and must be completed using the overseas event entry facility (click here). Fencers will require an FIE licence before their entry can be completed. As with the FIE and EFC licences, event nomination does not need to be done at the time of tour registration.

Fencers should also note the operation of the AFF Selection Policy for World Cup and EFC events - in particular, see sections A4.27 to A4.31 for individual competitions and sections A4.39 to A4.41 for team competitions.
