Programs and Classes
Which class is right for me / my child? Step 1:
BTW: Equipment is included for minifence & beginners
We provide all equipment necessary to fence, except non-marking sneakers.
Recreational fencers must own their own electric gear, including lame, or pay rental fees. We offer equipment rental (any piece) for $10/month, payable before use.
Competitive team members must have a full kit for electric fencing, including named lame and two weapons.
See our Equipment pages for more details.
SFO is a member in good standing with the Ontario Fencing Association. For insurance purposes, all fencers (including minifencers) must also join the OFA, so this fee is folded into the fees for classes, and we take care of it for you.
Competitive Fencers are required to become members holding either competitive memberships ($80) which includes Canadian Fencing Federation membership and license. or the U15 competitive membership ($45) if under 14 years of age.
However, we recommend that all our fencers join the Canadian Fencing Federation as part of their memberships as this is the primary means to support our sport and its development in Canada nationally. This is a $22.50 annual cost which not only provides resources for the national development of fencing in Canada but also is the benchmark for participation and government funding. Everyone benefits from a clear understanding of how many people participate in our sport, from the youngest fencers to our Olympians.
