Welcome to West End Swords

West End Swords is a fencing club in Mississauga, ON. We offer foil fencing programs for youth (ages 9-15) and adults (ages 16+), and historical (HEMA) fencing programs, such as rapier & longsword, for adults (16+). Our classes are held at Star Academy -1587 Cormack Crescent.

Classes run for 2 hours which include warm up, drills, group instruction, private lessons, and open fencing time. We welcome all types of fencers whether they are fencing for the fun of it, or seriously pursuing competitive goals. 

West End Swords offers fencing year round, broken up into 6 individual sessions: Fall A, Fall B, Winter, Spring A, Spring B, and Summer. Beginner fencers can join at the beginning of any session. Pre-registration is required. Our programs run weekly, for 6-10 weeks each. Program prices will vary depending on the number of weeks in the session, and the number of programs you join each session.  

Online registration closes once a program has started, however returning students can register late and have their fee prorated by emailing us. New students must join at the beginning of a session.

The three different membership options we offer include:

  • Rec Fencer: $27 per class (one 2hr class per week)

  • Rec Plus Fencer: $25 per class (two 2hr classes per week)*

  • Competitive Fencer: $23 per class (three 2hr classes per week)*

  • Cancellations requests received less than 5 days prior to the session start date will be refunded minus a $15 admin fee.

  • Cancellation requests received after a session has started, will have the remaining weeks refunded minus a $15 admin fee, until 50% of the classes have been held. Once a session has reached the half-way-point, it is no longer available for refund.

  • West End Swords does not provide refunds for missed classes.

Bad Weather Policy:

  • In the unlikely situation that a class is cancelled due to bad weather, there will be no refund or make-up class available.

IF classes are cancelled due to extreme weather we will announce it on social media (facebook & instagram), and email everyone on the class list.
