More information

Although fencing is primarily an individual sport, kids develop a strong sense of teamwork during practice. Fencing is a co-ed sport where girls and boys have equal opportunity to excel, and children regularly defeat equally ranked adults.

Parents of our high school fencers have said that their child's fencing was a deciding factor in gaining admittance to a first choice college.
