Multi-week registration discounts available. Spots are limited, so be sure to register today!

Why Fencing?

1. Promotes an Active Lifestyle
Your children can’t “swordfight” without a lot of athletic movement and learning to control their bodies and reflexes in ways that are different from everyday life, much better than looking at screens all day.

2. Children Learn to Pay Attention
Fencing develops concentration, decision-making skills, and critical thinking, all while under pressure in a safe, controlled environment. These are skills that will serve them well throughout their lives.

3. Builds Personal Responsibility & Character
Because fencing is an individual sport, fencers learn they are responsible for their success, learn how to manage failure, and discover they are mentally & physically stronger than they ever imagined.

4. A Safe Outlet for Aggression
Children learn to control and express themselves in an emotionally safe space. There are few other places where you are cheered and encouraged for positive aggression.

5. Makes College Applications Stand Out
Fencing has the best athlete to scholarship ratio of any sport, with a 30% chance of competing in NCAA Div. 1, if they fence in high school, compared to 0.5% for basketball, making any college application stand out.
