At BB-FC there are two types of membership with two types of ways to pay for those memberships.
One major difference between Fencing and other sports is the “Club” representation. As you begin your fencing career, it is important to remember that while fencing is an individual sport, you are still a part of a community and member of a team within your club. BB-FC is proud to provide a supportive, friendly, and knowledgeable club environment where we help sculpt our students as athletes and people.
As your fencing career evolves, and you establish yourself within the club, you may venture out into the world of competition as a representative of BB-FC. There are local, regional, national and even international opportunities that our members can participate in. BB-FC is ranked in the top 100 Epee Clubs in the USA. So when you look good, we look good. We are a team, we are a club, we are a family, and we are excited to have you as a member!
When you start fencing, you will love it quickly. Our Coaches provide streamlined training in our group classes, while simultaneously providing individual feedback and assistance.
What is a Representative Member
This option is for those dedicated athletes that would like to be an official representative of BB-FC on their USA Membership, and eventually want the option to represent us in competition.
For our dedicated, Representative Members, we are happy to offer a reduced monthly rate, or “Forever Discount” if you would like to pay on a consistent, monthly basis. To be eligible for the Forever Discount rate of $175 per month, you must only represent BB-FC, and sign up for automatic, recurring payments through our website.
$175 per month
* Pay at the Club, on a month by month basis. The fee is $205 per month.
This plan is for those athletes that would like to be an official part of BB-FC, and who eventually want the option to represent us in competition, but want the flexibility of being able to take a month off here and there. Upon your first visit of the month, payment for the next month (ie January 26th-February 26th) will be required at the club’s front desk.
Your membership price is locked forever as long as you remain a member using our automated payment.
Like the Forever Stamp, the BB-FC’s Forever Discount is locked-in, and we will never increase your fee so long as there are no interruptions in payment. If you fence for 1 year, 5 years or 35 years, we will never raise your rate, so long as there are no interruptions in payment.
The Forever Membership is only available if you set-up autopay through our site, and only if there are no interruptions in payment. If you take a month off from autopay and want to reinstate your membership, your membership will restart at whatever the current cost of the Forever Membership is, not the price you formerly received.
As a Member, you are able to attend as many learning groups in a month as you wish. One of our club specialists will guide you as to which class level or levels you belong in, and will assess you in in the Introductory Classes. Private lessons are not included in the BB-FC Membership, but can be requested on an as-purchased basis at any time. Prices for private lessons vary based on coach.
What is a Non-Representative Member
This plan is for those athletes who would like to use BB-FC’s facilities, but who want to be a representative of another club. This plan is great for an athlete who may be in town for a few months and wants to continue their personal fencing, or who is a member of another club but lives closer to BB-FC and would prefer to use our facilities from time to time.
To be eligible for the Forever Discount rate of $205 per month, you must sign up for automatic, recurring payments through our website.
