Scheduling lessons

Lessons must be scheduled through management and coaches. We try to keep fencer’s lessons at the same time each week/month. We’ll do our best to re-schedule missed lessons but please give 24 hours notice if you cannot make your lesson time.

Tournaments

Beside conditional and training, nothing is better than having a good strip coach at your side and teammates traveling together and supporting each other during events. MFA will be posting, online and at the club, schedules of all regional and national events. MFA will help coordinate having fencers travel together, and provide coaching options to support you at these events. If there is more than 1 MFA fencers at an event, you really should travel as a team.

Fees for coaches are dependent on distance traveled, number of students to support at each event (or solely focused on yourself), and any miscellaneous charges that may apply for longer distance tournaments.

Basic guide to coaching charges at events

Strip coaching at events costs vary from coach to coach.  Please contact club management for all requests. A base level is as follows. All payments should be made to MFA. Coaches will get paid 100% of all charges. Cost is per day. Payment may be cash or a charge to your account.

Armory and equipment charges

Students are expected to learn some basic elements of learning how to test your equipment, and fix minor issues. More advanced armory training will be given every 6 months, at specially scheduled armory training sessions, at minimal cost. MFA will make its best effort to fix members equipment when there is a failure. Look to our armory prices that will be posted at the club.

MFA branded clothing is available for ordering. Please ask a coach or management.
