Summer Beginner/Recreational Class

$190Purchase required to enroll

Beginner/Recreational class for students ages 7-18. Appropriate for fencers without any fencing experience as well intermediate fencers. These classes are held once a week for eight weeks and last an hour. Classes may be cancelled if there are fewer than 6 fencers registered. Maximum enrollment is 14 fencers per class. Fencing gear will be available for individuals who do not have their own gear and is included in the price of the class. The cost of the 8-week class is $190, and has been adjusted to assume people will miss about 3 weeks due to vacation.

The class is intended to introduce/refine the basics of fencing. The focus of the class will be to introduce and practice basic footwork and how to correctly hit your opponent, as well as introduce the rules of fencing and the equipment needed. Classes will be divided into four segments. These segments will include a warm up, footwork, fencing-specific drills and fencing. Fencers will be able to fence during each class. Throughout the session students will have the opportunity to hook up and use electric scoring equipment.

All students should have a non-competitive USFA membership. Click here to purchase a membership for $10 (good until 7/31/20): https://member.usfencing.org/
