WAY of the Sword, located in Ridgefield CT, is home to three team USA clubs: fencing, archery, and chess but also offers 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.
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.
From kid to corporate let us let us host an unforgettable party for you specializing in fencing, archery or chess. We also offer party space rentals. Coming soon...bar/bat mitzvah reception for your teen's special celebration. Everything a growing teen needs to "man-up" and party down.
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.
The gallery at WAY exhibits local artists and hosts ongoing receptions showcasing a diverse range of art.
