Which class for my child ?
Take a look at the schedule online, you are going to see 2 main categories:
Pre-competitor: Any students with no experience or less than 1 year of fencing . This is a beginner level .
Competitor: Students who have been fencing for at least 1 year and want to compete or are already competing (U.S.F.A / HS team).
A minimum of 2 classes/week is recommended.
For your convenience, the schedule is color coded (for each weapon) and uses the following USFA age categories.
