CFC to Suspend Physical Operations
10 June, 2020 - Effective June 26th, Concord Fencing Club will be closing its doors at its current location. We will be suspending physical operations over the summer, and will regroup in the fall to consider the feasibility of reopening in a new venue. Though CFC will be without a physical address for an indefinite period, we are not planning to close the club completely. We plan to continue activities on several fronts: Our Remote Training Program will be extended through the summer, individual lessons will be available by appointment, and
the club will maintain its USFA membership and social media presence. Further details will be announced as they become available.
CFC Reopens for Individual Lessons
1 June, 2020 - Following the update of the State of New Hampshire's "Stay at Home 2.0" mandate, which allows Health and Fitness clubs to reopen for limited activities, Concord Fencing Club will reopen this week to offer Individual Private Lessons. To ensure the health and safety of its fencers and staff, the club has implemented a new COVID-19 protocol which includes a strict regime of social distancing, the wearing of masks by staff, fencers, and visitors, and a program of regular disinfection within the venue. Interested students should contact CFC by email for further information.
CFC Announces New Remote Training Program
25 March, 2020 - Concord Fencing Club has developed a new Remote Training Program, designed to help our fencers remain engaged with the sport, and to maintain their training, despite the social isolation experienced due to the COVID-19 crisis. Activities and materials from the program will be available to anyone who registers for classes or donates to CFC during the temporary suspension of our onsite activities. In recognition of the extra effort and dedication required to maintain one’s training during such challenging times, CFC has also announced the creation of a new special achievement badge, which will be awarded to students and members who successfully complete the requirements of the Remote Training Program.
