First Aid:

We are thinking about running a first aid / CPR certification course. If you're interested in participating, and haven't already done so, please contact info@westdalefencing.com.

Social Media:

We are playing with a new Facebook Fan Page that should allow you to receive weekly updates directly within your facebook page (in theory, though we're still looking at how reliable this is). Click here to subscribe.

Clothing Order:

If you might be interested in purchasing some WFC clothing (t-shirts, tracksuits, hoodies), please talk to one of the coaches. If there's enough interest, we'll put another order together.

Weather Reminder:

As the winter weather continues, please remember some of our winter policies:

- Please remove wet shoes and boots before entering the stage/gym area. Also, please make sure your bag wheels are dry.

- If the weather is unsafe we may cancel practice, as many of our fencers and coaches commute from out of town.  Please check the website for closures before heading to practice. Closures will be announced before 4pm.

- Regardless of the club's status, if the weather is dangerous and you don't feel safe driving, stay home!
