For students entering grades 2-12

Fencing is one of the fastest-growing sports in both the U.S. and the Youth Enrichment League (YEL)! U.S. Olympic coach Ro Sobalvarro leads YEL’s curriculum, ongoing instructor training, and tournament consultation. Sobalvarro brings an immense knowledge of youth, national, and international fencing.

This summer, your favorite instructors return with more knowledge, refined coaching skills and, of course, your favorite fencing games and arm bands. Safety is our first priority. We supply safety swords, protective masks, chest plates, jackets, and a high-octane, inclusive environment.

Visit for a more thorough explanation of our fencing program, coaches, and philosophy. Sign up today to join this sport, deemed the “sport of the intellectual athlete”! New and returning students invited.
