The fencing program is a coordinated Brunswick and Greenwich Academy varsity sport. The two schools practice, travel and
compete together. Fencers may choose to work with foil, épée or sabre.
The program continues to grow in 2016-17, as the coaching staff focus on developing and honing technical skills, mental agility, strategy and tactics. Home matches are at Greenwich Academy's Ramsing Gym.
In recent years, participants won tournaments, state championships, and held high national rankings. The team faces high quality opponents from across the FAA and the region.
