Fairfield Fencing Academy Mission
The FAIRFIELD FENCING ACADEMY is an independent organization dedicated to promoting multi-level fencing through targeting athletic development and competitive exposure.
The Academy's primary mission is to create opportunities for all participants to engage together at any age and ability. Our fencers learn essential skills and life lessons that are consistent with the best practices in youth and adult athletics. We offer competitive classes and also a recreational “Friday Night Fight”. The fencing community is growing fast, join this great community and start your journey today!
How it all began:
In 2011 a group of parents from the Fairfield Warde/Ludlowe Fencing team put their heads together to find a place where their children could go and fence. Finding that the closest fencing centers were 20-30 miles away we contacted Wakeman's Boys and Girls Club in Southport, CT. There we started a small program which grew rapidly. From that humble beginning we are now entering our sixth year and opened our new space at 700 Old Stratfield Road in Fairfield, CT. During these early years we are proud to say that we have produced 5 High School State Champions, 25 All State Team Members and six nationally ranked fencers.
