1. HOW DO I SIGN UP?
2. what is the difference between beginners class and youth competitive class?
The main difference between Beginners Class and Youth Competitive Class is the skill level difference. Beginner's class will be very basic where the fencer will learn all the basic fencing skills, movements, and so on. Youth Competitive class will start focusing on more advanced techniques and readying the fencer to enter the competitive fencing level.
3. how much does the beginners class cost?
For more information about our price schedule and membership fees, please fill out our contact form here. We will be able to get to your inquiry in less than 24 hours. You can always contact us via phone at 404-500-8285 or visit our club!
4. how do i pay?
You may pay all memberships via a staff on-duty, in-person with cash, credit card, check, or through our Venmo account @elitefencingacademy. If you are planning to transfer funds to our Venmo, please state fencer's name and the details of the transfer (be as specific as possible).

This depends on your individual preference. Your choice of becoming a recreational or a competitive fencer should be expressed to the Head Coach during your one-on-one meeting. But either way, we will provide you with the classes, coaching, and team to help you succeed and/or enjoy in fencing.
