Monthly rates are calculated based on 4 weeks in each month. This is to allow for any occasional missed or cancelled practices throughout the year. Refunds will only be given in exceptional circumstances, except when arranged in advance with the club treasurer. Please see this great article which explains why we are not able to offer make-up lessons.
If you are interested in joining our competitive or hp programs, please talk to one of the coaching staff. Note that these are limited enrolment programs and places will be allocated at the sole discretion of the Head Coach. Fencers joining competitive or high performance programs are expected to commit to that program for the entire term.
