Directions to Dunn Gym:
You’ll see a sign from 154 for Dunn at Santa Ynez Street. Just off the highway you’ll see a road going straight and one to the left. Take the road straight until you get to a closed gate and then turn left along the fence. You’ll pass the gym and then see a parking lot on the left. The gym is the metal structure across from the pool.
The results are in for the 2015-2016 Youth Circuit season. Congrats to our winners and thank you to everyone who competed this year.

Address for this event:
Points West Fencing Club

Ventura, CA 93003
We are pleased to be adding high school tournaments to the calendar this season. These events are open to fencers in 9th-12th grade from SLO, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties. The individual qualifying events held during the year will culminate in a championship team event in the Spring. More information about the high school events can be found here.
For the Central Coast Youth Circuit this year we are making some changes. The biggest change is that we are merging the Y10 and Y12 events into a single category. Y10 fencers are still more than welcome to attend the youth events but won’t have their own separate points list this season. Rules for the Youth Circuit, including age requirements, can be found here.
The proposed calendar for the 2015-2016 season is online. There are lots of events for fencers of all ages and levels on the schedule this year so take a look and get ready for a great season!
The points have been tallied for our 2014-2015 Youth Circuit and the results are in:
1. Boris Peljhan, Presidio
2. Calvin Weimbs, Presidio
3. Hank Molina, Presidio
1. Kaleb Jordon, Points West
