Come and Visit!
Over the years, our club has produced numerous national and international medalists, and Olympia Fencing Center is the number one NCAA feeder in the New England Division.
Three of the six 2018 US Cadet Epee World Team come from our club, and we’re the only club in the US to send a woman epeeist to the 2018 Youth Olympics, in Buenos Aires, AG.
Our coaches are experienced fencers and educators; all our foreign coaches are holders of the O1 Visa, a special work visa for Individuals with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement.
Fencing for fun, to stay fit, or fencing competitively, you’ll find at Olympia a friendly, but a professional place. Our programs are specifically crafted and organized by level and skill. This is the place where age is just a number.
We offer a FREE TRIAL for both children and adults!
Learn more about booking your free trial here.
The free trial is also an assessment. Our coaches are closely watching and determine your skill level. If you’d like to enroll after your trial class, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll help with the registration process.
