Program Descriptions

Open Fencing

Designed to allow experienced fencers to utilize their own equipment or rent equipment to fence practice bout or competitive bouts on our electric strips.  If you are a youth fencer with a USFA Competitive membership then your parent/guardian must remain present during this session and you must purchase the Youth Club membership.  Any/All weapons(foil,saber,epee) may be fenced during these times.  Team members have priority on video replay strips.  Most TFA members will fence more than 1 weapon (foil, epee & saber).  

Youth Minnow Classes
This class meets on Saturdays from 9:30-10:15am.  This class is for our youngest fencers and may be fenced with foam, plastic or live weapons. Our emphasis is on movement and introducing these minnows to fencing in a safe, fun, engaging environment.  Our goal is to prepare these minnows to become sharks and join our competitive class down the road.  New minnows may join at any time.

Recreational Classes (Youth & Adult)
These classes are broken out by age/ability but are taught in parallel.  These classes are designed to provide instruction to our fencers across all 3 weapons and focus on a different weapon depending on which evening (T-Foil, W-Saber, Th-Epee) Fencers are encouraged to try more than 1 weapon and explore their subtleties and nuances.  How many classes you attend weekly is determined by which membership option you have chosen for the current 30 day period (1 or 2 times per week).  These periods are offered as 30 day packages and can be changed from month to month.  The period begins on the day of purchase and is good for 30 consecutive days.  It does not need to begin on a specific day of the month. Check out the calendar so that you are aware of which days in a given month we may be travelling.  Prorated months are only made during the initial sign up.  Fencers must purchase a USFA "non-competitive" membership from (approx $10/year).

Adult Class
This class is taught on Saturday from 12-1pm and is designed for beginners and intermediate fencers. We accept new students at any time during the month and this is an excellent way to introduce yourself to the sport or get back into the swing of things. All 3 weapons are taught with the weapon changing each month.  Please see calendar for specific meeting days as sometimes the team is travelling and therefore classes are not held.  Monthly membership covers 4 consecutive meetings (ie. where we are not traveling).

Competitive Team Fencers
Competitive fencers must sign up for TFAs Annual Membership and represent TFA as their primary club affiliation at the USFA.  This programs emphasis is to create national level competitors in all 3 weapons.  Fencers will have an active training plan and know which tournaments they are training and peaking for.  These fencers are serious about their sport and will plan on meeting at least 3 times per week, balancing school and tournaments!
