we've expanded beyond the blade. Look at us now.

WAY specializes in Team USA fencing but also offers enrichment beyond the blade including: archery, chess, parties, camps, and art exhibitions.


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.


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.


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 Camp

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 17 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.

Way Art

The gallery at WAY exhibits local artists and hosts ongoing receptions showcasing a diverse range of art.
