The WAY to Measure Results

WAY is driven by a quest for holistic athlete development, making better people while also making better athletes.  These desired athlete outcomes generally fit into four areas by which we measure success when developing an athlete:

1. Competence: sport-specific technical, tactical and performance skills; improved health and fitness; and healthy training habits. We track results as a measure of a students capability of applying technical skills in competition.

2. Confidence: self-belief, resilience, mental toughness and sense of positive self-worth are the cornerstones of this program.

3. Connection: positive bonds and social relationships with people inside and outside of sport makes WAY a unique inclusive club.

4. Character: respect for the sport, ethical and morally responsible behavior, integrity and empathy are embedded into everything we teach and do at WAY.

Instruction

From novice to NCAA, we teach the theoretical, technical, and tactical skills proven to get results in today's contemporary competitive environment while making it an enjoyable and engaging experience.

WAY recommends a combination of private, and group instruction coupled with endless hours of fun fencing and competing.

Group and private lessons are available in foil, sabre, and epee from novice to advanced students.  See the schedule.

We are located in convenient downtown Ridgefield a short walk from the boys and girls club, East Ridge Middle school and RHS bus stop on Main St. 

 

 

 

 

Tournaments when you are ready

Tournaments, as nerve-racking as they can be, are critical for applying what we have learned but equally serves as a barometer for coaches to help students improve. Further, tournament results are necessary for advancement in ranking and point standings. The better you do the more access you will have to greater competitors and opportunity.

Our Fitness Facility & Professional Trainers by Results Fitness

Training in group classes serves to teach and reinforce instruction, improve students' agility, promotes fitness, and teaches students to be autonomous fencers. We instill the love of training in our students by making it enjoyable and rewarding as opposed to punitive. It takes years to develop an athlete and we know our role in teaching students to honor themselves through self-care and self-advocacy. By instilling the value of hard work and self-respect, we not only improve students' performance on the strip but equally their behavior for life.

Discounts for parent personal training as well.
