Utah Valley Sport Fencing was established in 1996 by Julie Seal and Bethany Andrews as a federally tax exempt public charity. UVSF was the first school of fencing in all of Utah and Idaho! We serve over 200 athletes currently and administer programs at our newly expanded Orem State Street facility, as well as Utah Valley State College, UVSC Continuing Education, local elementary and secondary schools, the Utah Youth Fencing League.
UVSF boasts five individual national champions and three national championship teams, including the:
- 2002 United States Division 1A Women's Sabre Champions
- 2002 Division 1A Men's Foil Silver Medal Team.
UVSF is a registered school with the United States Fencing Association. We have programs available in foil, epee and sabre. Individuals ages 5 years and up are invited!
