California FENCING Academy - CFA

The Introductory-Beginning Classes are for those with little or no experience.  They learn the basic positions, footwork, terminology, safety, rules, ettiquite, and sportsmanship of Olympic fencing. In partnered drills you will learn to thrust, disengage, do feint attacks, actions on the blade, and various parries and ripostes. You even get to start fencing each other the second day of the session. It's a blast!

We start them in two seperate age groups for a better learning experience. These ages learn differently and must be taught differently for the best development and the most fun! The age groups are our SUPER YOUTH FENCERS 6-9 years old, and FURURE STAR FENCERS 10-13 years old. Even in these two age groups, if appropriate, they are further divided into partner and team groups of  6-7, 8-9, 10-11 & 12-13 ages.The groups are kept to a small ratio of about 8-10 students (4-5 pairs) to each certified fencing instructor.The equipment rental fee is included in the class cost. CFA classes are held at the Cal Sports Club's Olympic Training Center at 891 East Hamilton Avenue in Campbell.

When this class is completed, and you would like to continue you become a member of Cal Sports Club. You would join the novice level program once or twice weekly depending on your goals. The classes and training continue in a month-to-month ongoing program that progress through the recreational, developmental, local team, Junior Olympic Development program and even the National and International team levels if that is your desire! We have comprehensive programs for  both recreational students and competitive interested ones.

AGE NOTE: Some nine year olds will continue into the Future Stars with the 10 year olds, and some 10 year olds do better in the Sper youth gropu with 9 year olds. This is often just because they may be close to the other age group because of a recent birthday, or they all just develop at a little different stages. we want what is best for the child and the other students in the class. We assess this while they are in the beginning course. Sometimes we may recomend that the fencer might try the other age group even after they start the beginning class if we think it is better for them and the group, and of course that is only if your schedule permits it.

ALL EQUIPMENT IS INCLUDED & ALL COACHES ARE FORMALLY TRAINED AND CERTIFIED!

Each session covers two months in eatheir a 6, 7, or 8 week session with 45 minute classes. 6 weeks is $125.00/7 is $145.00/8 is $165.00

You may then upgarde to 4 privates monthly, and a mini-lease of a school horse for 1.5 hours weekly for self practice, grooming, bonding, and playing with your horse (lease is first done in groups and with staff present at the stable).
