West Coast Fencing Policy & Safety Info

Standards & Guidelines

West Coast Fencing Academy provides the highest quality instruction and training in the sport of fencing. The Club and Coaches conform to all USFA standards and guidelines for safety and proper fencing club requirements.

Policy & Procedures for Fencers

  • WCFA requires adherence to fencing safety wear. This means that proper fencing safety gear will be required at all times during fencing bouts, including wearing fencing knickers, fencing mask, fencing glove, fencing jacket and proper shoes. Some fencing gear may either be provided or can be purchased. Please ask for more information if needed.
  • Club Member fencers will receive a personal Login and Password where you can sign-up for additional classes, check the calendar and/or book your private lessons online.
  • To be a part of the team and represent West Coast Fencing Academy in Local, Regional and National competitions we appreciate you wearing a West Coast Fencing Academy team jacket. Please ask about how to get your correct team jacket size and to place your order.
  • All members of the club are required to attend two West Coast Saber Cup competitions per year.
  • New students to fencing are required to begin their first month with the WCFA “Starter Package”.
  • We request prompt payment of membership or class fees, preferably on the 1st of each month. If you are unable to meet your regular monthly payments, please ask us for help or special attention in this matter.
  • If a student misses a monthly payment over 30 days or more, student must pay a 1-time, $70, club membership reinstatement fee.
  • Private lesson cancellations can be made no later than 6 hours before the lesson to avoid payment penalty fees. Private lesson payment penalty fees are the cost of the lesson missed when not cancelled in time.   
  • Food or drinks are allowed in waiting areas. Training and fencing strip areas only allow closed bottles, no open cups and no food.
  • During competitions and award ceremonies members of the club should wear West Coast Fencing Team jackets.
  • Makeup sessions for properly cancelled, pre-paid private lessons must be rescheduled within 30 days of initial cancellation date to avoid loss of lesson.
  • Late arrival to class, more than 10 min late to class, is not allowed and attendance to class that day may be refused.
  • Parents or non-fencers are not allowed on the fencing strips or in the fencing training areas during class. 
  • Strip coaching is mandatory with five or more fencers attending the same competition.
