The All-New Athena Project by NWFC

Announcing The Athena Project!

The Athena Project is an all-new Northwest Fencing Center initiative. Designed to support women and girls in fencing, the program will bring together athletes of all ages and skill levels for an exclusive training experience. The key to this support is the creation of women-only fencing spaces that transcend age groups.

This 2-day camp will turn our 20,000-square-foot facility into a women-only space for an entire weekend. Women and girl fencers from around the country ages Y12 through veterans 70+ are invited. This special event is not just for NWFC members.

WHY WE WERE INSPIRED TO CREATE THE ATHENA PROJECT

We hope the reality of a woman-only fencing space will be revolutionary. Our goal is to foster a stronger multigenerational community among the fencing community. One where younger fencers can look for support and example, as well as allowing older fencers to mentor.

The reality of a women and girls-only fencing space will be revolutionary. We hope that the younger fencers get to know the coaches and older fencers and see through their accomplishments the future possibilities of their continued enjoyment of the sport.

This special camp is only the beginning! In the summer of 2024, NWFC will host a training week specifically for women coaches. We plans to team up with W Fencing for a women and girls summer camp combined with a women only coaches college. This extraordinary summer event will be a 3 weapon camp!
