Keep Your "Blade Sharp" with 1:1 lessons. All WAY members will receive a minimum of 1 private lesson and two or more if you have already purchased private lessons with your plan.

Solidarity is how we will all get through this. Stay calm, behave like "Mrs. Davis"

Whatever the actions you decide to take in the coming weeks and months, remember one thing; we believe in prioritizing family and school first with fencing a close third. If you are in a position to maintain the status quo, please continue to do so. If not, please continue to join us for unlimited group classes online.

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.
