La Belle Fencing Club is open to anyone interested in the sport.
All of the funds collected pay for operating expenses and equipment. All coaches and staff are volunteers, no one is
paid for their time.
If you have no experience in fencing, the best way to get started is
to take our six-week beginner's class. You can sign up for it through the Midland College Continuing Education program.
The cost is $100 and includes the use of club equipment and three months membership.

If you can't wait for the class to come around, you can start fencing
on a walk-in basis where you will be given instruction for a specific skill each time you attend practice until you have learned
all of the skills taught in the beginner's class. The cost is the same as taking a class ($100), and includes the use
of club equipment and three months membership.
After you've taken the class, or if you learned to fence somewhere
else, membership costs $100 per year and is payable quarterly. If you join the USFA, you will receive six months free
Please note that USFA memberships expire on July 31 each year.
They will not pro-rate fees, so keep this in mind before taking advantage of the club discount!
