As a part of the Canadian Fencing Federation (CFF) Armband Program, Ottawa Fencing holds regular Armband testing.
The Armband Program is a comprehensive progression through the sport of fencing for fencers of all ages, encompassing all aspects of the sport as fencers progress from beginner to high performance athletes. As fencers work towards receiving their Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, Red, and Black Armbands, they will learn the skill sets necessary to become successful athletes, coaches, and referees.
Those interested in learning more about the CFF Armband Program can download the complete program outline (Armband-CFF-Program.pdf) or the individual test checklists below:
