JUNIOR BEGINNERS Ages 10-17

Continuing fencers, click for Intermediate | Competitive
Welcome to fencing! Beginners should wear sweatpants (not shorts or jeans) and athletic shoes. We recommend a flat-soled shoe - like a tennis or indoor soccer shoe - but any exercise shoe will do fine to get started.
There is also an annual registration fee of $55 which is payable the first day of class. Or if you prefer, pre-pay annual registration fee here.
Equipment is included for this session; however, students wishing to continue past the first session must purchase their own mask and glove (around $70) by the end of the first session.
For summer, we are running two four-week-long sessions
instead of our usual monthly sessions. You can start either
session (July 16-Aug 9 or Aug 13-Sept 6); fencers starting in
July can continue through the second session for a total of
eight summer weeks of fencing.
ONCE WEEKLY $100 / 4-week session | TWICE WEEKLY $160 / 4-week session
- Wednesdays 4-5 pm
- Fridays 4-5 pm
Once weekly - $100/4-week session
Twice weekly - $160/4-week session
That doesn't fit my schedule...
Private lessons are most likely your best option; one on one with a coach, private lessons are a good way of experiencing the sport that is flexible to your schedule. Generally private lessons may be scheduled any time we're open that is convenient for you, and will often mean your fencer advances faster than in group classes since each lesson is tailored to their individual growth. For more information or to schedule a lesson, please call us at 718.522.5822. Note there is a 24-hour cancellation policy for all private lessons.
Talk to us! Based on your fencing goals, we can help you figure out the best way to get fencing in your schedule. With a few private lessons you should be able to join one of the ongoing more advanced classes.
If you're interested in exploring competition or just want to get more fencing in, talk to your coach or the head coach. Private lessons are probably your next step. Coaches can also help you figure out when might be good to come in for extra bouting with fencers around your level.
