Mission

The North Carolina Fencing League (NCFL) was formed to provide high school fencers in North Carolina with the opportunity to compete with fencers from other North Carolina High Schools in an environment that values honesty, integrity, and sportsmanship. High School fencing in North Carolina is a fast-growing activity, currently supported through the high schools as an athletic club. The North Carolina Fencing League is expanding, with new high school fencing clubs being added regularly.

The North Carolina Fencing League wishes to eventually attain sanctioning by the North Carolina High School Sports Association, making fencing a varsity high school sport in North Carolina.
