Chelsea Piers is pleased to announce a partnership with Tim Morehouse, 2008 Olympic silver medalist and founder of the Tim Morehouse Fencing Club (TMFC). Starting in August 2021, Tim Morehouse and his team of internationally recognized coaches will offer programs that range from beginner classes and youth camps to elite-level fencing coaching in the three disciplines of fencing: foil, épée, and sabre. Chelsea Piers will also integrate on-site tournament play into its already robust roster of competitive youth sports.
Chelsea Piers is the third Elite club for Tim Morehouse, a testament to the rising interest in fencing amongst both youths and adults.
Tim Morehouse Fencing Club was founded by Olympic silver medalist Tim Morehouse. The club provides training to athletes in New York City (since 2015), Westchester (since 2017), and Connecticut (opening Aug 2021) in foil, épée, and sabre. TMFC was ranked the number one club in the country for High School All Americans 2020-2021 and was ranked the top Youth Fencing Club in the country for the past two years based on the total number of medals won.
