Where do I put my patch?

Earning Your NWFC Club Patch

Where do I put my patch? That’s usually the first question fencers ask when they receive their first NWFC Club Patch.

ALL Members competing who own their own jacket receive a white NWFC Patch to represent us on the strip. Additional patches are $5. 

NWFC Fencers winning a Direct Elimination (DE) bout at a national event earn their black and gold NWFC Patch. National events: SYC, SJCC, ROC, NAC, JO’s, July Challenge & Nationals.

*A “bye” for a direct elimination round does not earn a fencer a patch.

The Symbol of Us

The tradition of our Members earning their club patch has been around for decades. When you’ve been training hard and finally make it to that next level in a competition, we want to recognize and celebrate that accomplishment.

When a fencer receives their patch, their excitement is always noticeable. Not only have you accomplished something new, but your fencing family is there celebrating with you.

It’s a symbol we can spot from across the convention center and know, “my people are over there.”

Where NOT to Put It…

  1. Mask or bib
  2. Knickers
  3. Weapon arm
  4. Lamé

Patch Standards:

Your patch goes on the upper outer shoulder of your back arm, on your jacket. They can be sewn or attached with fabric adhesive onto the sleeve, 2.5″ below the shoulder seam.
