Students of all levels, who train hard, will enjoy the best results
Letter from Coach Jana
We are starting a new fencing season and a new chapter at NVFA. We would like to welcome Coach Taylor as our new Saber Coach. Many of you will know Taylor already having felt the sting of his mighty blade! Coach Ray is also joining the NVFA team. Ray began fencing in the nineties with a former Olympian, who was also my first coach. Welcome Coach Ray!
We are looking forward to seeing our regular students and some new faces as well when Fall classes start September 3rd. We will be offering Club Hours Saturdays from 11 AM - 2 PM. Private lessons are available during Club Hours or by arrangement. Please contact coach Jana for more information.
See you on the strip!
