Welcome to the web pages of the Vermont Fencing Alliance, a.k.a "The Northern Horde!" Fencing is an exciting Olympic sport which develops strength, agility, fitness and mental focus. The Vermont Fencing Alliance is a US Fencing Association sanctioned club, with branches in Middlebury (founded in 1992) and Charlotte (founded in 1997).
We offer an active program of recreational fencing and competitive training for people age 9 through adult. Our activities include foil and epee classes at all levels, occasional beginning saber classes, private lessons for intermediate and advanced students, open fencing, a regional league for friendly competition, and travel to meets throughout New England and beyond. Whether you want to go for the gold, or just a little swashbuckling for fun and exercise, the VFA warmly welcomes beginners.
The Vermont Fencing Alliance meets in Middlebury and in Charlotte. Click to view days and times.
