Rules for Fencing Parents, Annotated

A great post that all fencing parents should read: “I am the athlete. I am responsible for my own gear. How else will I learn to take care of it unless I do it myself?”

The Friday morning armory line at JOs this year was impressive. We BC folk gaped at it.

It wasn’t the length of the line. Friday morning armory lines are always long, and fencers and coaches always come and ask what we’re going to do about the start of the 8:00 am events because the line is so long. We always tell them not to worry, that by the time we’re ready to start the fencing, the line will be gone, and everything will be okay. Every once in a while, we tell the head referees they don’t need to rush their assignments because of the line, but the line almost always shrinks and disappears on its own by the time we send out the pools.

What had us gaping in Baltimore was the make-up of the armory line: at least half of the people standing in the line were parents.
