Getting Started

Getting started with fencing at Phoenix Falcons is easy! Find the section below that applies to you:

I or my child have never fenced before

For people age 8 to adult who have never fenced before, we recommend starting with the 6-week beginner class. This class meets for 6 Saturday afternoons and covers the basics of fencing. Loaner equipment is available so you don’t need to buy any gear to get started. Check the beginner class page for more information and check the schedule for current class times.

I or my child have previous fencing experience

For fencers ages 8 to adult who have any previous fencing experience, we recommend coming to a Skill Development class and/or open fencing. If you don’t have fencing gear, we have gear available to borrow. Check the schedule for current class and open fencing times. You are welcome to attend one session for free. After that, you can join the club as a member and attend unlimited sessions. Please contact us in advance to let us know you’ll be coming!
