North Shore Fencers Club  classes

We offer group Beginner, Intermediate, and Competition classes, as well as private lessons. Beginner classes are for fencers with less than 3 months experience, as early as age 5. Intermediate is for fencers beginning their competitive career. Competition classes are for those age 11 and up that are actively competing at tournaments. The class schedules follow the school year, with camps during the summer. Our fencers compete locally and nationally in many divisions: Cadet (16-19), Junior (13-19), Y14 (11-14), Y12 (9-12), Y10 (7-10). Call the club at 516-773-6262 to learn more.

Beginner classes

You will learn basic footwork and foundation weapon skills. As you gain experience and understanding of the weapons' capabilities, together with your coach you will decide on the right weapon for further study. After 10 weeks, your abilities are reviewed. Some students will move up a level, others will continue practicing foundational skills until the next review.

Intermediate classes

You have been selected by your coach to train on a competitive level. You are preparing to attend regular local or national competitions, and are expected to maintain a consistent training schedule as outlined by your coach.

Competition classes

You have 2 or more years of fencing experience, compete on a local or national level, and are over 11 years of age. You are expected to maintain a consistent training schedule as outlined by your coach.
