Saturday classes are open to adult fencers of all experience levels.  These classes are drop-in style and are sold in packages of six (approximately two months' worth of classes) and operate on a punch card system.  You can take a weekend off for that family vacation and not worry about losing your class credit.

Class fees include full use of the club's facility.  Fencing equipment is provided by the club.  Students are expected to be on time for class and wear good gym shoes and full-length athletic pants.   A personal water bottle is highly recommended to stay hydrated.  

New students with zero fencing experience may start on the first class offered each month.  New students with fencing experience may start on any day with instructor's permission.

YOU ARE NEVER TOO OLD TO START FENCING!

In addition to Youth, Junior, and Senior (open) age categories, the United States Fencing Association (USFA) holds national competitions and championships in four Veteran age categories: 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70+.  The International Fencing Association (FIE) also holds world championship events for: 50-59, 60-69 and 70+ age categories.

There are many local and regional events that also focus on Veteran age categories, so there are plenty of opportunities for people of all ages to meet and compete with each other.
