If you're looking for a unique and interesting way to stay active, check out the fencing classes offered by PCYC NSW. Several of our New South Wales clubs hold fencing classes, where you can learn this Olympic sport from our experienced coaches.

Requiring equal parts mental and physical concentration, fencing is a fascinating sport that demands agility, quick thinking, and boldness. In fencing, the main objective is to score points on your opponent (but not to hurt them). However, while you're in class, you will wear protective gear for your safety.

During fencing classes at PCYC, you will learn the fundamentals of the sport and enjoy the opportunity to spar against your classmates. As a participant, you'll benefit from the physical exercise that it provides, as well as other learnings such as self-discipline, dedication, and hard work. You'll also get the chance to meet friends who share your interest in fencing.

At PCYC, we offer fencing classes for a range of age levels 10+ and abilities, and our courses are held in compliance with the standards set out by the Australian Fencing Federation. If you've never tried fencing before, our staff will walk you through the basics and make sure you're comfortable before going up against a classmate.

With more than 65 clubs and centres across New South Wales, PCYC serves children, teenagers, and adults around the state. Since 1937, we have been working to empower young people to reach their potential through police programs and recreational activities.

At PCYC, we partner with NSW Police Youth and Crime Prevention Command to provide personal development programs, where kids and teens can build their character and learn how to be responsible members of their community.
