Fees have remained the same for this year.
In 2016 we wish to manage the whole affiliation process without handling any paper copies as there have been some problems in the past with details not being forwarded through to us.
We would also ask every fencer to submit and pay for their affiliation directly to FenCen (not through their club) by following this link to the Affiliation Form (or via the menu entry on the left) and completing the online form. This will not only avoid double-ups and oversights, it will also help Fencing Central and Fencing New Zealand to have complete, accurate and up-to-date membership data for every member.
You can pay by internet banking or cheque/cash. A postal address is provided on the form for those who prefer paying by cheque (best not to post cash).
Please remember that you must affiliate each year before 31 March or before your first competition. Please allow 5 WORKING DAYS for your affiliation to be processed and payment to be cleared.
If you are UNDER 18 YEARS of age, the affiliation must be completed by your PARENT or LEGAL GUARDIAN. For information about how your affiliation money is used please see "About Fencing Central" in the menu.
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING YOUR SPORT!
