Covid-19 Update for NWFC

It’s time for small group classes! We have developed a plan that allows us to bring fencing back inside the club in small cohort only classes. The plan is focused on the safety of our members, parents, and coaches. The plan was prepared with the support of medical and public health professionals and is consistent with the State of Oregon Executive Order and CDC guidelines for Phase One. 

All other classes (Intro, Mini, Homeschool, & Open Fencing), are on hold until further notice.
