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 sabre classes, 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 try a little swashbuckling for fun and exercise, the VFA warmly welcomes beginners.
Our new Competitive Squad program is open by invitation to experienced fencers ages 13 through adult. Competitive Squad members will train together and support eachother in the pursuit of their fencing goals, while serving the club as a core group of motivated and enthusiastic athletes. The success of the program can be measured by the medals the athletes bring home, but more importantly, by the fun they have and the lessons they learn about dedication, leadership, sportsmanship and teamwork.
For intermediate to advanced students, private lessons are available in late afternoons with Viveka, and in the evening with coach Geoff Butler. Click here to schedule a private lesson.
