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.
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.
Join us for local camps as well as our international sleepaway camp in Vichy, France.
1) Winter Camp ages 5-10. 4 days of fun activities and enrichment.
2) Combo Camp - A fun engaging camp combining archery, fencing and chess disciplines
3) France Camp - Enrichment beyond the blade. A family vacation and fencing camp with French National coaches and the Head Coach of West Point Military Academy.
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.
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.
Watch as we transform our fencing club into a hip, non-alcoholic, nightclub for teen and kid parties. You won't believe your eyes...
