Coach's Statement

            Hello, and welcome, to the  George Washington High School, Screaming Eagles, Fencing Team Website.  Our  team is comprised, largely, of Asian Teens, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Thai and more, from all walks of life. They come from neighborhoods, ranging from the Richmond District, to China Town, to the Mission, and the Sunset.   We have both boys and girls teams, that compete regularly, during the spring sports season in the AAA, for San Francisco Public High Schools.

           

            Once they try out for the team, we foster a team and achievement oriented atmosphere.   By accomplishing this, the program has been able to continually raise the expectations of the individual, both in and outside of athletics.  This attitude positively affects their academic performance, social skills, and relationships at home, and pulls them away from activities that are harmful to them.

 

            Our fencing program, over the years,  has helped students to accomplish much in their lives.   Some go on to some of the finest colleges in America, crediting not only their GPA, but also, their fencing team experience, in being accepted to higher institutions of learning. 

 

            Most of our kids go on to college, and bring their achieving ways, and leadership abilities along with them.. Some have even won,  back to back UC Fencing Championships, some graduating with dual bachelors degrees, in 4 years, 1 of us, has even gone to the Olympics.  The long and short of it is this, leadership and achievement becomes a habit, a life long habit!

 

            We don’t refuse anyone!  Our program is open to any kid who wants to join.  If they exhibit patience, team spirit, show up everyday and work hard, we can accomplish miracles with them.  It does not matter their size or their strength, or their athletic or personal  history.  They all learn to work together, win together, and sometimes, lose together, and, either way, be good sports about it. But, then, together, figure out how to fix what, if anything, went wrong. 

 

Our team ideals of self sacrifice, and caring for others before themselves, and leading by example. Your teammates all learn this selfless form of leadership, which is necessary to become a fine fencer.  Through, leading by example, with a strong, positive spirit, our Eagles Fencers, have made a name for themselves, not only on the city level of competition, but at the state level also.

 

            Our kids are doing it, because it is not only great fun, but, it is good for them, and they know it is good for them, and that not much else can compare to their experience here on Eagles Fencing.
