We've just launched our new website - head over there for the latest news and to sign up for classes. 

Fall Registration 2021

Ottawa Swordplay will be reopening with some restrictions in September of 2021. We have not been idle while we've been shutdown and we look forward to having you in our improved Sword Hall!

In addition to the physical upgrades, we are improving our website and registration and membership systems. While we build the new site, you can access our new registration system right here!

How it works:

We are bringing back our Bronze/Silver/Gold membership model, and we are continuing to offer sliding scale rates for all three levels. Previously, these gave students access to 1-3 classes per week. Our new model is similar but more flexible for you and for us.

Memberships will renew monthly (you can cancel any time) and each month members will receive 5 , 10 , or 15  credits to use to register for classes, workshops etc based on the membership level you signed up for (Bronze, Silver, Gold). You can take the same class at the same time every week, or adjust to fit your own availability. Each class, workshop, fight night, or private coaching session costs 1 (one) credit. Credits are valid for two months, giving you even more flexibility!

Why are credits in multiples of 5?

  • Some months have five of whatever day you plan to attend class.
  • You may want to attend an extra class.
  • You may want to attend an extra workshop
  • You may want to bring a friend to class
  • You may want a 1 on 1 coaching session.
  • More swordplay is always better!

What if I just want to try a class?

You can register for most of our workshops without becoming a member, and once a month we will offer introductory novice classes that you can sign up for without a membership.

What if there is another shutdown?

We recognize that we might face new restrictions or a return to an earlier step of reopening. We will offer what classes we can in those circumstances and extend the two month validity of any credits by the length of any shutdown period. You can also choose to cancel your membership and reactivate it after. If there is an extended shutdown, we have further contingency plans in place.

I signed up for a membership in the spring of 2020. Can I get credits for that?

Absolutely! Email directors@ottawaswordplay.com and we'll sort you out!


Before you can book classes for the fall, you will need to sign up for a membership. Select the level that's right for you. Your membership immediately gives you the set number of credits. As a member, you can also buy additional credits. Now you can book for whichever classes/workshops/events you want, using the credits. You can make repeating bookings for the same day and time for consecutive weeks, or book individual classes.

If you are already a student, you might be in our system already, but you will have to create a new password.
