WAY of the Sword, located in Ridgefield CT, is home to three team USA clubs: fencing, archery, and chess but also offers a virtual learning center, plus enrichment beyond the blade including, camps, parties, even an art gallery. We're also a proud fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity and Relay for Life. Take a tour and meet our professional coaches today.

Way-Full-White

A USFA sanctioned fencing club. One of the earliest forms of civilized rivalry, fencing has evolved over the ages as an Olympic sport that embodies honor, discipline, and self-expression. From novice to NCAA we have the path forward to meet all your fencing aspirations.

Wayspace Chalk

Wayspace offers everything your child needs to help bridge the "virtual" gap, socialize, stay fit, and have fun during remote learning. We provide all the structure and support necessary to ensure your child is prepared, willing, and able to learn remotely.

TheWay-Archery-WhiteOnly-Web

USAA sanctioned archery club. Archery may very well be the oldest sport still in practice today. An Olympic sport since 1900, archery improves concentration, focus, and responsibility. Six indoor lanes located on the lower level of WAY.

TheWay-Chess-WhiteOnly-Web

From chess to scrabble, board games serve as an educational tool aiding in the learning of planning, cause and effect relationships, pattern recognition, and research. 

Way Only-Camps-White

A fun and engaging combination of Team USA fencing, archery, and chess! Our weekly camp sessions are a great WAY for kids ages 7 + to train like Olympians. Each week, students will receive an age-appropriate conditioning regime and formal lessons in fencing, archery, and chess from certified professional coaches. In addition, your child will learn to "parlez-vous" from a surprise guest who'll teach French, the language of escrime.
