    Posted in News

    Dear Darien Parents: Our fall/winter semester is just about to end and we wanted to congratulate all of our fencers on a great first half of the year. Over the past three and a half months, everyone has worked very hard to learn the basics of footwork, bladework and strategy. We had several internal competitions and competed as a unit in the Candlewood Holloween tournament where we got valuable competitive experience and even won a medal or two! Congratulations on that. We have some great plans in store for the upcoming semester with Coach Dima offering more private lesson time, upgrades to our scoring devices and a few more tournaments where we will represent Darien and go for the gold in multiple age categories.   The following dates constitute the 2016 winter/spring class schedule: 1/10, 1/24, 1/31, 2/7, 2/14, 2/28, 3/6, 3/13, 3/20, 4/3, 4/17, 4/24, 5/1, 5/8, 5/15, 5/22, 6/5, 6/12, 6/19   There are a total of 19 […]

    There’s a battle going on at the Darien VFW Hall. Harrison Zuckerberg and Kai Zhou cross swords, trying to outwit and out-muscle each other and land the fatal thrust. It’s a rare sight for Fairfield County but just another afternoon at the Darien Fencing Club. Harrison’s mom. Darien Fencing Club founder JeffreyBinder’s 11-year-old daughter, Sylvie, is proof. She started when she was 6 and fell in love with the sport. She took ninth place in her age group in theU.S. Fencing National Championships. Two years ago, Binder decided there was a lack of programs for children and started a club in his hometown of Armonk, N.Y. Realizing there was a need in lower Fairfield County as well, the Binders broughttheir group to Darien this spring. “The ultimate goal would be to create a full-time academy in the area,” Binder said. “But we reasoned out that what we should really do is develop an audience for it. “The club doesn’t have […]

    (Colorado Springs, Colo.) – Team USA’s women’s foil fencers took the top three positions on the podium at the Tauberbischofsheim Cadet European Cup in Germany on Sunday. For Sylvie Binder (Armonk, N.Y.), Morgan Partridge (Swansea, Mass.) and Stefani Deschner (Mechanicsville, Va.), the results were strikingly similar to the Gyor Cadet European Cup in Hungary in September where the trio also won three medals with Partridge taking gold, Deschner winning silver and Binder taking bronze. All three fencers began the day with undefeated records in the first pools and Partridge ended the early rounds with a perfect, 11-0, record while Binder and Deschner lost just one bout each. In the direct elimination rounds, Binder held each of her first four opponents to single digit scores as she racked up wins against Sabina Hendrichova (CZE), 15-4; Beatrice Kudlacek (AUT), 15-5; Sophie Werner (GER), 15-8; and Alina Malyshkina (RUS), 15-4. Binder lost her next bout by a touch at 10-9 to Leonie Ebert […]
