Learn to Fence

For those who like to give fencing a try, the requirement to join the YMCA is waived for the first two weeks.  If after two weeks you decide to continue, a YMCA membership will be required.  The only cost of the two-week trial is $15 for a USA Fencing membership.  We will provide all the equipment you need.  For those who join the YMCA after the trial period, the Y does not charge members any additional fee for fencing.


Fencing is recommended for ages 12 and up.  Many fencers begin as adults.



Fencing free to YMCA members! There are also daily passes available to non-YMCA members.
