For NEW fencers ages 6 – 13
Fencing has a rich connection to history, real and imagined, conjuring images of swashbucklers, pirates, musketeers and Jedi Knights. As a modern sport, it develops not only physical and technical skills, but encourages quick thinking, creative problem-solving and concentration.
If your child is interested in fencing this is the place to start. The “Introduction to Fencing for Kids” is a prerequisite for entry into Youth 1. There is no charge for Intro to Fencing for Kids: it is to be taken during your first free trial week. The instructor will go over the basics of fencing technique, in order to ready your child for entry into Youth 1.
After one or two sessions of Intro to Fencing for Kids, most fencers will be ready to move on to Youth 1 class. If, however, the instructor determines that your fencer needs special individual attention, she must schedule Private Lesson(s) with coach Vince until he deems her ready for Youth 1. Membership dues still apply.
All equipment is provided; bring athletic clothing (t-shirt, tennis shoes, sweatpants – No shorts).
Monday: 4:00 – 5:00pm
