Heartland Fencing Academy currently has a roster of over 150 active fencers. This number is rapidly growing as our fencers continue to succeed in the sport, and as the popularity of fencing grows. HFA offers varying skill levels of classes six days a week, introductory and competitive camps, private lessons, and open fencing. In addition, HFA offers private events for custom instruction for people interested in learning more about the sport (such as physical education groups in schools, office meetings, homeschool groups, and wheelchair groups).
The competitive fencing season lasts all year long. Ongoing instruction continues throughout the summer, spring and winter breaks. HFA only closes for major holidays. In fact, HFA’s most sought after and popular competitive fencing camps occur during summer and winter breaks. Fencers come from all over the Midwest to attend these camps, and visiting nationally renowned coaches are invited to bring in additional expertise.
HFA maintains an open door policy – fencers from other organizations are welcome to join in our classes, camps, open fencing, or private lessons. Because of the skill levels of our HFA fencers, other fencers welcome to enjoy the opportunity to fence at HFA.
Fencing is a sport for both kids and adults! You can start fencing at any age, and it will challenge your mind and your body.
