2018 Winter Program Guide (PDF)

10 years old to adult

Learn a sport that spans centuries – fencing is the ultimate cross-training program that conditions the body and develops balanced coordination. Youth learn to dodge, parry and thrust in this exciting sport that keeps growing in popularity. Learn proper form, technique and etiquette in this methodical yet fast-paced sport.

Classes run throughout the school year with a 10-week session in the Fall (September-December), a 10-week Winter session (January-March), and a 15-week session in the Spring (March-June). For one week in June, a week long fencing camp is held by our instructors prior to the National Fencing competition.

The Princeton Family YMCA is proud to announce that it is now a member of the United States Fencing Association and is identified as the Princeton-Hillsborough YMCA Fencing Club. Take a look at the USFA website.
