Competitive Program Structure

Competitive Fencing Program Costs

The cost of Advanced Fencing Program is $455.00 per month.

USA Fencing is the governing body of all fencing activity in the United States.  Per USA Fencing requirements, every fencer that establishes membership with CFA must become a member of USA Fencing to be covered by insurance.  New fencers should register here and show membership at the first class.  Non-competitive USA Fencing membership costs  $10 per fencing season. Fencers can upgrade to the USA Fencing competitive membership level prior to first competition ($70 per season).  Season goes from August 1 through July 31st.

Competitive fencing lasts indefinitely.  Because of this, competitive fencing requires a commitment to the sport on a completely different level.  It requires more commitment to group and private lessons and open fencing.  Competitive fencing also requires a lot of discipline and significant participation in regional, national and even international competitions.
