Since 2016 The Boston Fencing Club has partnered with Buckingham Browne and Nichols School, a day school located in Cambridge, to grow a fencing program for middle school and high school students.
Students from the school have access to Boston Fencing Club's facility during their athletic season and enjoy the benefit of having a dedicated practice space designed for fencing. With access to BFC's coaching staff, BB&N is thriving in its middle school and high school fencing programs.
The partnership provides BB&N students with a regular practice space, up-to-date equipment, and a consistent place to hold meets.
