Strategic Plan

2017-2019

Fencing is growing rapidly in San Diego county, but most all of the growth is coming from non-competitive fencing. That shows great potential but also the rsik that our growth is fragile. It could well be that many of the new members do not stay long enough after they try the sport. 

Looking at this data the EC has decided to set 2 aggresive goals for the next 3 years:

- Grow competitive membership by 30%
- Grow the % of Women Fencers by 4 ppt to align with the National average
