Beginning Foil Fencing Class

If you have never fenced before, this is the class for you. Basic fencing equipment for the class will be provided. However, you will need to wear long pants (sweats or warm-ups recommended) and court or running shoes.  Street shoes are not allowed. Enrolment is limited to ages 12 and up, with a maximum of 12 students.

Beginning Foil Fencing Class takes place at the Loyal Heights Community Center.

Beginning Foil is not offered during the summer quarter.

Intermediate Foil Fencing Class

If you have completed our beginning class, this is the next step. If you have had basic instruction elsewhere, you may take this class with the instructor's permission. Intermediate fencers are expected to have their own basic equipment: mask, jacket, plastron, glove, knickers or long pants, and practice foil. However, we can rent a basic kit for $30. Enrolment is limited to ages 12 and up, with a maximum of 12 students.  

Intermediate Foil Fencing Class takes place at the Loyal Heights Community Center.

Open Fencing

Experienced fencers must have all their own equipment and wear appropriate fencing attire. This includes mask, jacket, plastron, knickers or long pants, glove, and electric gear. We usually have one or two electric strips set up and all weapons are welcome. There are no enrolment limits for Open Fencing.  

Open (Club) Fencing takes place at the Ballard Community Center.

 

We offer a single fee for either of the fencing classes or open fencing. When you show up at a Center at the beginning of the quarter, register for the appropriate section and pay the single fee. You may also pre-register by calling a Center at a number to the right.  

The quarterly fee for each session (Beginner, Intermediate, Open) is $110.
