Coaches and Programming
The Saskatoon Fencing club prides itself on developing fencers from beginner to
elite. Whatever your fencing goals, we can teach you the skills you need to
enjoy the sport we love so much!
Our fencers have been on National teams that have gone to World
Championships, Pan Am Games and Olympic games. We participate in provincial
tournaments hosted by the Saskatchewan Fencing Association, as well as national
and international events.
Our coaches are NCCP certified at Level 4 with years of experience. All of
our coaching staff have fenced and coached for many years. They draw on their
experience to deliver skills tailored to fencers at all levels.
We offer programs suitable to fencers from age 4 to adult. Equipment is
supplied for our programs. Masks, jackets and gloves are available for use, so
equipment costs are not a concern when starting our programs!
We are pleased to introduce our Knights Program! This program is for little
fencers from the age of 4-7. The emphasis is on movement skills through the use
of fencing. We use special swords made of foam for this program.
Our Learn-to-Fence program is for fencers from the age of 8-11. Both of these
programs, Knights and Learn-to-Fence, are offered once a week and run for 6
weeks per session. We offer 4 sessions of these programs during our fencing
Our beginner program is for fencers who are aged 12-15. This program offers a
choice of once a week or twice a week. It starts in September and ends in April.
Finer skill development, group lessons and partner learning are a big part of
this program along with mini lessons.
Adult Beginner classes are also offered at our club. This program is tailored
to adults and their busy lives! Offered once a week on the weekend, it provides
an opportunity to learn fencing with other adults! We offer two sessions of this
program during our fencing season.
Regular fencing training takes place 5 days a week. Our Regular members are
experienced fencers who have advanced through our Learn-to-Fence and Beginner
programs, or have fenced for many years. These are the fencers who are training
for tournaments or just enjoy the challenge of competing against and learning
from some of the top fencers in the country!
No matter where you start with your program, the Knights program,
Learn-to-Fence, beginner or are one of our regulars, fencing will take you to
amazing places, let you meet tremendous people and discover a sport that is
different every day you do it!
Come train with us!
