The division is entirely run by volunteers: mostly fencers and fencers' parents. Volunteer efforts are what makes the division vibrant and fun. Prospective volunteers should contact the Executive Committee at EC-NJUSFA@yahoogroups.com to discuss ways to volunteer and facilitate training. Volunteering at an event is a good way to spend some time while at an event, plus, you may earn a free entry for your child or yourself.
