The Alaska Division of USFA has been active for over 30 years. We are currently made up of six different clubs from five different cities in Alaska and have over 50 active members. The Alaska Division provides organization and unity to all Alaskan clubs. As part of the US Fencing Association, the Alaska Division hosts tournaments and qualifies fencers for national-level competitions.
It's time to renew individual USFA memberships for the 2010-2011 season. Remember that USFA membership is a prerequisite for Section, Division and National competitions.
USFA affiliated club memberships are also due. Club membership allows the club to host USFA tournaments and is the basis for obtaining USFA insurance for those events.
The forms for both types of membership are linked below.
