TRFC Forms Partnership with Pittsburgh Urban Christian School!

PUCSPhoto
The Three Rivers Fencing Center is excited to announce that we have formed a partnership with Pittsburgh Urban Christian School (PUCS)! We have secured the PUCS gym for practices.  This is a beautiful gymnasium that will meet our need to conduct safe and excellent fencing practices for our members and Beginner Class students!  PUCS is located at:

 

Pittsburgh Urban Christian School (PUCS)

809 Center Street

Pittsburgh, PA 15221

 

The gym is located in the modern brick building to the right of the old stone church when looking at it from Center Street.  There is a series of three aluminum doors with aluminum railings on the steps outside the doors (Google Maps allows you to see the building and doors - please see directions, below). This is the entrance that we will use to access the gym.  There is parking on the street, and we also have access to a parking lot conveniently located on Ross Avenue (around the corner from the gym - I'll put together an aerial map, soon).  The PUCS gym is located less than 5 minutes and less than 1 mile from our former location:

  • Mondays: 6-8 p.m.
  • Wednesdays: 6-8 p.m.

TRFC Securing New Space

Dear TRFC Fencers and Families,

 

I trust that you had a blessed break with family and friends and that 2017 is off to a great start!  

 

Many of you have asked about when and where we will be conducting our fencing classes - we are searching for a new space to conduct our fencing classes, and we will post that information, including a schedule for new Beginner Classes and Regular Practices, once we have found our new home!

 

I know that this was sudden and that it would have been ideal to have a new space already secured before exiting our current space, but circumstances required this course of action.  I apologize for the inconvenience and for less than ideal communication on my part about this topic.

 

If you have a contact or idea for a new space, please email us at classes@threeriversfencing.org - Thank You!

 

Bradley Cellier
