(printable format)

Facility
We are located at 414 1st Ave. N. in Saskatoon (printable street map). We have a full-time facility that is used 5 days a week. Our well-equipped facility boasts a 4000 sq ft. area for fencing training, a full armoury, female & male locker rooms, and a lounge area with Wi-Fi for parents. The club provides highly qualified coaches, summer programs, social events and much more!

Partnerships
We are partners with the Canadian Fencing Federation (CFF), the Saskatchewan Fencing Association (SFA), as well as Sask Sport and the Canadian Sport Centre - Saskatchewan. We have been in existence for over 40 years and have many current members and alumni who contribute to our success, year after year.

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!

Program Scheduling
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 season.

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!
