Although power outages are reported in the area of the school, they are estimated to be restored by 6pm. Practice is on for now but stay tuned for updates. If you have to drive a long way, you may want not want to risk driving in for nothing.
Our fall beginner class starting Sept 12th has now reached maximum capacity. We do not think we can safely squeeze more beginners into the gym. We hate to make people wait to start fencing, but it’s the only way we can provide a safe and fun experience.
Please email us at email@example.com if you would like to be placed on the wait list. We will admit a very small number of additional fencers after seeing what our gym space looks like. This will be announced by email September 6th. I will also put people on the Sept wait list who don’t have a slot into the January beginner class roster on request, so please specify in your email. We’ll send an email in the beginning of December asking you to confirm your continued interest.
For fencers who have previous experience at a competitive level, either with us or at another fencing club, please note that Intermediate classes and Open fencing are not full.
UPDATE: If you are an ACS student or family member please send us an email and we will work something out.
Practice is Cancelled for today, 8/1. Sorry for the late notice. Our location had an unexpected Issue.
We will resume as normal next week.
Every Wednesday from here until September we should be open for practice.
Please check back here or Facebook before heading over though, we often have to cancel summer practices on shorter than usual notice.
Fall Kickoff for Intermediate Foil Class will be 7pm September 5th
This year we are creating a more organized intermediate Foil program from 7pm to 8:30pm every Wednesday night. This program will involve electric boutwork and more intensive training for fencers that have completed one or more cycles of beginner classes. If you are interested in this program please attend at 7pm on September 5th. This program requires commitment to purchase (at once or over time) electric equipment.
Beginner classes start September 12th.
Please RSVP by email to reserve your spot. Send RSVPs to firstname.lastname@example.org
We expect this class to fill up. There will be a waiting list as well and we will let people on the wait list know if there is a spot open on September 6th. If you are not on the RSVP list we will not be able to squeeze you into practice. The gym has only so much room for people to wave swords around in safely. The next beginner class will start the first week of January.
