If you’re looking for a sport for your homeschool family, fencing is a great choice. It’s a fun activity that will lead to lifelong engagement for your child. Your coaches are Dan Gorman and Liz Mayerich. We are certified by the US Fencing Coaches Association and have over 50 years of combined experience.
We got into this business because we believe that fencing is a sport that supports the development of a well-rounded child. The skills they will learn in fencing go well beyond the physical: through fencing, your child can practice dedication, sportsmanship, tactical thinking, and goal setting.
What is fencing?
Fencing is the sport of knights and swashbucklers. We will teach you to move like a fencer, wield your sword, and compete with your classmates. Our homeschool classes also incorporate conditioning, coordination, and movement exercises to make it a great stand-in for a physical education class.
What do I need?
- Shorts to the knee or pants
- Closed-toe athletic shoes
- That’s it! We provide all fencing equipment.
