South Coast Fencing Center is home to the largest fencing center in Orange County.  The center is committed to developing successful athletes in a positive training environment.  We have introductory programs for those who want to try out fencing for the first time.  We offer intermediate programs for those looking to expand and develop their techniques.  Competitive programs are available for those interested in competing at the regional, national and international levels.  We welcome students from the ages of 7 and up, offering both group and private instruction for all experience levels.

SCFC is a member of the United States Fencing Association (USFA) and was founded in 1999.  We are active at the competitive level, regularly fielding athletes at North America Cups and National Championship events.  Our coaching staff and students include Olympians as well as former World Cup finalists, members of the US National Team and national champions. 

We have a 5,400 square foot facility, with over 3,600 square feet of fencing floor on two levels.  Ten fully electric strips are available to the fencers.  Membership amenities include weights and gym equipment, lockers, practice targets, a study lounge for parents and kids, rental gear, a full-service armory with repair staff on site and a store for new fencing equipment.

Referee clinic

SCFC will be hosting a referee clinic, taught by Derek Cotton. Mr. Cotton is one of the US's strongest referees and has officiated at many domestic and international events, including World Championship and Olympic events. 

The clinic is designed to give participants a solid understanding of the rules of our sport as well as right of way rules, interpretations and how referees tend to call actions. This is a must for all fencers and parents are highly encouraged to attend as well!

This all-day clinic will include training and the written exam. It will run from 9:00am to 3:00pm. The written exam is now done online and can be scheduled by the student.

The fee for this clinic is $75, payable when you arrive at the clinic. 

This is NOT a test preparation course! If you are interested in attending this course, it is strongly recommended that you read the USFA rulebook prior to coming to the clinic. The USFA rulebook may be downloaded from the USFA's website at

For those looking for written training material or interested in passing the referee exam, it is strongly recommended that you read the Referee Study Guide. This guide may be downloaded from the Fencing Officials Committee (FOC) website at
