Child Programs (6-8)

Designed for children aged 6-8, our child program introduces kids to basic foil fencing skills using real equipment, with a heavy emphasis on fun. Children start in our one-month long Child Beginner class, learning the basics of how to move in the fencing position along with simple bladework taught in a games-based format. All equipment for this class is provided.

After completing the one-month long beginner course, children graduate into our Child Intermediate class. Within this class, fencers further refine their footwork and bladework, beginning to apply their learning in bouting. Typically, fencers remain at this level for three to eight months as they begin to develop mastery of both the technical and tactical aspects of the sport. A $100 deposit is required for fencers to sign out equipment. Fencers are expected to gradually purchase their own equipment, starting in their third month of training. When the fencer is ready to move to the next level, the course instructor will speak to the fencer and the parents.

In the Child Training Club, fencers will take their skills and apply them to fencing using electrical foils, just like in competition. This class is designed to help younger fencers prepare to begin competing while still keeping focus on having fun and playing games. As the fencers grow, they may transition into the Academy Training Program when their coaches feel they are ready.
