Youth Beginner Camps

For kids that are new to the sport of fencing. No prior experience necessary!

 

This camp will teach the basics of fencing in a fun environment. The coaches will play lots of games to warm up and teach the fencing footwork to the beginner fencers. They will have plenty of time to fence, under the watchful supervision of the coaches, who will set challenges and drills to introduce them to the skills and tactics of the sport. At the end of each bout they must shake hands with their opponents, encouraging sportsperson-like behavior alongside developing co-ordination and fitness.
