This class is designed specifically to meet the needs of homeschooling families.

Perks include: $5 trial class, special pricing, 10% sibling discount, generous make-up policy, comfortable seating, tables & chairs for schoolwork, toys for the younger set, free Wi-Fi and the same professional coaching staff as in our competitive program. All equipment (jacket, mask, chest plate, glove, & foil) provided.
Tuesdays AND Thursdays 10AM: a fun and safe 45-min. introduction to fencing accomplished largely through games and imaginary play. Come play pirate and build a solid foundation for future skills. Young children will improve fitness, balance, agility, and hand-eye coordination. Class encourages the development of listening skills while children learn to take instruction and follow directions in a group situation. Our coaches understand the needs and abilities of young children; expectations are age-appropriate and FUN! Best for young sevens and those brand new.
Home School Youth/Teen
Tuesdays 11 AM AND Thursdays 11 AM: an 80-min. class covering the basics of fencing footwork and blade work with targeted exercises to develop the muscle groups and skills necessary for fencing. Class begins with warm-up and footwork. Games, both cooperative and competitive, push kids to increase their heart rate and encourage them to think and act fast. Kids suit up for the last 45-min. for group instruction and bouting. Proper fencing etiquette and safety rules are strictly adhered to at all times. Students are tested individually on the skills taught during class and will be grouped by age, ability level & experience.
Home School Youth Intermediate
Thursdays 1 PM: an 80-min. class for students who have attended several sessions in the homeschool fencing program, mastered the fundamentals, and who are ready for more challenge. By invitation of coach only.
Home School Adult
Not content to sit on the sidelines? Why should the kids have all the fun? With a minimum of four, we can hold an adult class at the same time as a homeschool class for children/teens. Just tell us which day/class time you’d like to attend and we’ll work with other interested parents to try to find a time that works for all.
