Equipment Lists | Team Warmups | Athlete & Fan Gear
Rather than ask that new fencers buy all their own equipment to start, we require our fencers to have specific pieces of equipment in order to graduate to certain class levels. As they improve they will slowly gather all that they need to be competition ready.
Get your own personalized NWFC Member Warmups here! Fill out a form and give it to the Front Desk to place an order. We’ll let you know once it’s ready!
*Warm-up uniforms (jackets & pants) must be worn on all podiums (local, regional, national).
Squad Locker is a service we use to offer Club Gear to anyone. Use the online store to buy hoodies, tee shirts, and more – all representing NWFC! When you purchase gear using Squad Locker, NWFC will receive a portion of the proceeds.
“How do I get my last name on the back of my jacket or lamé?”
All fencers are required to have their last name on their uniform, either on the back of the jacket/lamé or the rear thigh of the knickers, at all National and International Events.
We recommend all our athletes use Marx Enterprises to stencil their names on their uniforms. Owned by long-time fencer and NWFC Member Bob Marx himself, Marx Enterprises can be trusted.
Marx Enterprises is an independent business and is not employed or operated by the employees of NWFC.
