Many youth don't see themselves as athletes because traditional team sports don't suit them. They discover fencing and love the mental/physical connection. As a competitive sport, fencing provides lifelong lessons for young students to develop character, sportsmanship, strategic thinking and analysis, patience and perseverance.
For more than 16 years we have worked with our fencers to help them find their 'home' in the world of sports. Fencing takes on an important role in their lives from elementary school through college and their adult lives. Wherever they go, they always stay in touch with their fencing friends!
