Description of Offerings:

The Napa Valley Fencing Academy serves students throughout the Napa Valley. We currently offer classes in Angwin, St. Helena, Browns Valley, and Napa. Our goal is to introduce students of all ages to the joys of fencing. We offer a well-rounded approach to fencing that includes developing fencing techniques, footwork, directing, and good sportsmanship. The NVFA motto is "Effort is the Best Talent!" Students of all levels, who train hard, will enjoy the best results

Club Pass For a flat monthly rate of $109 students can attend virtually all of our NVFA class offerings. This includes the Monday Class, Wednesday Class, and Club Hours on Saturdays. Our goal is to encourage students to fence more often, to try new classes, and to pick the training schedule that works best for them. This new training format will provide better results for students. Also, Club Pass Students are eligible for a discount on private lessons. For more information, talk with one of our coaches. Register for the Club Pass through the Napa Recreation Department. Students will receive their pass at their first class of the month.

Classes Our classes are designed for beginning and intermediate fencers ages seven and up. No experience is required! You will learn everything you need to know to enjoy this Olympic sport. All standard fencing gear is provided. Classes are generally one hour in length except for Club Hours. This is also a great sport for parents and kids to do together. Talk with one if our coaches about what classes might be best for you!
