Recreational Olympic Fencing Program:
Beginning Fencing Classes and Camps
You learn the basics first starting with the ready, guard, and lunge positions, as well as footwork. We emphasize safety, sportsmanship and the rules of fencing. You will learn about offensive and defensive actions and will participate in partner exercises and sparring. We will do lots of fun fencing games for all levels. Students are divided by ages into two different classes which are Super Youth 6.5-9, and 10-13 however we will move kids from one group to another if they fit that level group better. All equipment is supplied, and all of our coaches are certified professionals at the international level. Classes meet once weekly for 45-minutes from 6-8 weeks, and camps are half-day week long sessions which can be combined with an archery camp to make all day camps!
After your beginning class graduation, if you want to continue with fencing in the novice-intermediate level you would become a Cal Sports Club member. This includes an annual administration/equipment fee of $150.00 which is billed with your first month dues, and again in 12 months. The monthly charge is auto-debit only. Once weekly is $129.00 and twice weekly is only $189.00 (only $50.00 more for a second day).
Novice-Intermediate Fencing Classes & Camps
This is the level after the beginning course. We start to teach more advanced technique and tactics at this time. We start to learn about competition formats and build a personal strategy to fencing. We incorporate all types of fun and positive ways to learn this awesome sport. Our international level coaches actually teach these recreational levels along. Most clubs will use Junior assistants. We also offer these levels in our camps which are divided by ages and abilities.
There is no additional annual fee or level up fees! Once weekly is $189.00 (equal to two 45 minute classes weekly), or $220.00 monthly for twice weekly – only 31.00 more for two days! It takes two days weekly to prepare for JOFD.
Intermediate-Advanced Fencing Classes & Camps
These 1.5-hour classes and week-long camps take you to an awesome level of fencing with deeper concentration in technique, mechanics, and strategies. You will get to many different types of bouting formats and fun drills and exercises involving more self-discipline. This is a developmental level that leads to our JOFD or Junior Olympic Fencing Development and CFA National Team program if that is your goal.
The Novice-intermediate recreational program is an ongoing program of 45 minute classes that run throughout the year. The classes are 45-minutes in length and you can attend once or twice weekly. All equipment rental fees are still included in the annual fee. The once weekly fee is $129.00 per month and twice weekly is $189.00 per month – Only $60.00 more for two days!
