What do I need in terms of equipment?
Don’t worry, Alliance will provide all the necessary equipment for beginning fencers. However, if after a couple of months of fencing you decide to keep fencing it’s probably a good idea to start investing in your own set of equipment.
How often should I count on coming to practice after the Beginner Course?
It all depends on your own individual preferences. You can choose to be a recreational fencer or a competitive fencer, but either way Alliance will provide you with the classes, coaching, and people to help you succeed in the sport. For youth fencers who choose to begin fencing competitively, we recommend coming to the youth class three times a week with competitive fencing on Saturdays. Then, cadet/junior/senior fencers (fencers from the age of 15 and up), we recommend you attend adult classes two times a week with optional free fencing sessions and competitive fencing on Saturdays.
