The UC San Diego’s Fencing Team has the opportunity to enhance our current equipment by branding our face masks and purchasing additional blades for all three disciplines. Any money raised above our goal will go towards other aspects of updating the fencing equipment in our armory; gifts received will have a profound impact on the Triton student-athletes’ experience and success.
Not traditionally seen in collegiate fencing, UC San Diego would like to brand all our masks that we compete in, letting our competitors know that, although an individual sport, we are all Tritons and compete as one. Branding the face masks elevates our program and increases our visibility on the east coast (where fencing is well known), as well as at national competitions. UC San Diego would be one of a small number of collegiate programs who have this enhancement on their masks. Not only would this make our program stand out nationally, it will aid in recruiting of top fencers from around the world. This type of branded recognition will bring together Triton parents, alumni and supporters, instilling a sense of pride for UC San Diego.
By raising funds for additional blades, student-athletes have the peace of mind that if their blade breaks, a replacement will be readily available. As our student-athletes and alumni have experienced, there is nothing more frustrating than having broken equipment right before an important competition. Additional blades will increase the confidence of our Triton student-athletes so that they experience greater success on the strip and in the classroom.
