Coaching and classes

Our coaches provide instruction in both group classes and individual lessons.  Check our group classes page for more information on those, and contact coaches directly if you would like individual lessons.
Lessons can be bulk purchased upfront.  Depending on time constraints, sometimes it is possible to request a lesson on the day, but it usually a good idea to book your lesson in advance.  Please make sure that you are ready to start your lesson as soon as you are called up.

Junior fencers are recommended to start in an appropriate junior class, and then supplement the class with short individual lessons once they have mastered the basics.  Our junior classes have some overlap and flexibility in age groups, so that young fencers have the option to fence at more than one class and at an appropriate skill level.
All coaches are fully qualified, affiliated with Fencing Victoria, and have Working With Children Checks.
