Join us for this exciting sport, one of the fastest growing in the world. People of all ages are fascinated by the movements and excitement of fencing and are eager to find a place that they can go and learn this original, modern sport. Fencing develops physical fitness, the ability to create a strategy, concentration, as well as camaraderie and respect. About the Instructor: Michael Tarascio was a member of the United States World Championship Team in Men’s Foil. Michael is a Level 4 Foil coach certified through the United States Fencing Association. Also, certified through the Positive Coaching Alliance and the American Sports Education Program. He teaches Recreational Classes for Youth, Teens, and Adults. Also, Michael teaches Advanced Level Technique and Tactics Classes and provides Individual Coaching for the Serious Competitive Fencer. Michael’s philosophy on fencing is: “Participate in fencing because it’s fun.” Equipment Policy and Rental: Our policy is that NEFA provides new fencers with equipment for the first eight weeks. For the second and each subsequent session, there is a rental fee payable to the instructor of $40 for eight classes. An individual may instead purchase (recommended) a beginner set (7 pieces) that costs approximately $200. The set includes a foil, mask, jacket, glove, underarm protector, plastic chest protector and a fencing bag. Cancellations: If we need to cancel fencing on a scheduled fencing day, one may make up the class on another day in Arlington, Reading or Winchester regardless of where one fences. For more information, please contact Michael Tarascio at Michael@nefencing.com or 978-210-2711. Please note that Michael will donate $25 to the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry for each registration we receive from a first-time participant in one of our Wakefield Recreation Fencing Classes.Wakefield Sessions - Tuesdays6:00 pm-7:15 pm Beginner-Intermediate for ages 7 and older 6:30 pm-8:30 pm Competitive Program (Ages 9 and older) by invitation only 7:15 pm-8:30 pm Beginner-Advanced for ages 12 and older 7:15 pm-8:30 pm Beginner-Advanced for AdultsSession 4: April 2-May 28 (No fencing on 04/17)Summer Session:  July 30 - August 20thMcCarthy Senior Center, 30 Converse Street, Wakefield, MA

Join us for this exciting sport, one of the fastest growing in the world. People of all ages are fascinated by the movements and excitement of fencing and are eager to find a place that they can go and learn this original, modern sport. Fencing develops physical fitness, the ability to create a strategy, concentration, as well as camaraderie and respect. About the Instructor: Michael Tarascio was a member of the United States World Championship Team in Men’s Foil. Michael is a Level 4 Foil coach certified through the United States Fencing Association. Also, certified through the Positive Coaching Alliance and the American Sports Education Program. He teaches Recreational Classes for Youth, Teens, and Adults. Also, Michael teaches Advanced Level Technique and Tactics Classes and provides Individual Coaching for the Serious Competitive Fencer. Michael’s philosophy on fencing is: “Participate in fencing because it’s fun.” Equipment Policy and Rental: Our policy is that NEFA provides new fencers with equipment for the first eight weeks. For the second and each subsequent session, there is a rental fee payable to the instructor of $40 for eight classes. An individual may instead purchase (recommended) a beginner set (7 pieces) that costs approximately $200. The set includes a foil, mask, jacket, glove, underarm protector, plastic chest protector and a fencing bag. Cancellations: If we need to cancel fencing on a scheduled fencing day, one may make up the class on another day in Arlington, Reading or Winchester regardless of where one fences. For more information, please contact Michael Tarascio at Michael@nefencing.com or 978-210-2711. Please note that Michael will donate $25 to the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry for each registration we receive from a first-time participant in one of our Wakefield Recreation Fencing Classes.Wakefield Sessions - Tuesdays6:00 pm-7:15 pm Beginner-Intermediate for ages 7 and older 6:30 pm-8:30 pm Competitive Program (Ages 9 and older) by invitation only 7:15 pm-8:30 pm Beginner-Advanced for ages 12 and older 7:15 pm-8:30 pm Beginner-Advanced for AdultsSession 4: April 2-May 28 (No fencing on 04/17)Summer Session:  July 30 - August 20thMcCarthy Senior Center, 30 Converse Street, Wakefield, MA
