SAFE SPORT TRAINING REMINDER

As a reminder, starting January 1st, all professional members of USA Fencing must keep their Safe Sport training up-to-date. You can check on your Safe Sport status in this spreadsheet. If you have not completed the Safe Sport training, you can do that here. (If you have taken the training before, but need to update it, you only need the refresher course.)
