SCFC is currently OPEN but urging students to be cautious with their training

September 13, 2020

The Center closed September 10-12 due to poor air quality conditions resulting from the numerous fires currently burning in California.  
 

The AQI continues to be poor in the Orange County area, although we are indeed fortunate compared with many other parts of California at the moment. You can monitor air quality conditions at airnow.gov and get up to date local information there.
 

We will be open this week for our normal classes. We understand that some of our students are more sensitive to poor air quality and encourage you to stay home if you feel uncomfortable. Our doors will be open and air circulation will be strong per our standard Covid safety protocols. In addition, our classes will be geared towards lower intensity activity while air quality is an issue.

Youth Development Program starts Thursday, September 10

September 7, 2020

Starting on September 10, we will be offering our Youth Development Program.  This program is designed for our younger students and is accepting both new students and those returning to the sport ages 7 through 11.

This program focuses on a balance of fencing and athletic development in a structure conducive to younger ages.  Content will emphasize coordination, analytical thinking, self-control and general athletic development while introducing foundational fencing concepts.

Registration is now open for this program.
