Chevy Chase Fencing Club offers group classes, sponsored by the DC Department of Parks and Recreation, for both kids and adults.
Youth classes are for boys and girls 8 to 12 years old. Full uniform and equipment is provided to the students. (A $25.00 materials fee is collected from each student at the beginning of the semester.)
Children are asked to wear t-shirts, short pants, long knee-length socks, and athletic shoes. Parents are encouraged to stay in the fencing room (quietly!!) and assist their child when it is time to wear the fencing uniform.
Our Junior Epee Program has been very successful with several of the students competing in the World Championships and other international events.
Adult classes are for ages 13 and above. Foil, jacket and mask is provided to the students. (A $25.00 materials fee is collected from each student at the beginning of the semester.)
Students are asked to wear t-shirts, long loose-fitting pants, and athletic shoes. Students should bring a glove (work glove or gardening glove) for their dominant hand. Fencing gloves will be available for purchase.
