Our home school fencing program was created to introduce the sport to the HS community and offer access to a sport that develops strength, speed and agility while reinforcing discipline, respect and sportsmanship. Our fencing programs offer an activity that has a team feel while being an “individual” sport, and often appeals to the athletes that are not “team sports” players. As fencing is almost as much a mental game as a physical one (it is often referred to as Physical Chess) it is also a great fit for the athlete that prefers a “brains over brawn” approach to exercise. Fencing is also a wonderfully empowering sport for young women as the lack of dependence on pure strength and speed allow them to compete and succeed in direct physical contests with all comers.
Our Home School fencers have the chance to fence as a team with the Virginia School Fencing League as a team in tourneys, or as CFA members in USFA competition. Our HS Group that was started last year will continue to meet on Wednesdays at 3:30pm-5:30pm. We will also be offering a new Introductory fencing course for Home Schoolers in the fall. For more information or to reserve your spot in that beginner’s class please contact a CFA member today.
