Event Description

Introduction to Fencing

This camp is for beginners or minimally experienced. All equipment will be provided, however you may use your own if you have it.

The Olympic sport of fencing provides a great physical and mental workout and is lots of fun to learn to do. Learning to fence is a challenging mix of physical and tactical training that is equally suited to boys and girls.  Each day we will explore one of the three weapon-sabre, foil and epee, through games, drills and one on one fencing.   In addition we will learn about officiating as well as participating in electrically scored fencing. Wear loose exercise clothes with lace-up, close toed athletic shoes and socks. Bring a water bottle.
