Announcements on the Continuing Fencers page
Summer Camps – July 8 through August 30
We still have room in our summer camps! Continuing camps are appropriate for students who have had 1-6 months of classes or a beginning camp. The Intermediate/Competitive camp is for fencers with a year or more of experience. Beginning camps are for kids and juniors with no previous experience – tell your friends how much fun fencing is!
Summer Continuing Classes – July 8 through August 28
For Continuing level fencers who can’t come to a summer camp, we are offering sessions of our Continuing classes on Mondays and Wednesdays in the afternoon and evening. Kids meet at 4:30, juniors at 5:30, adults at 6:30. The class fee includes Tuesday/Thursday open fencing for the month.
Last day of classes – June 21
The last day of regular classes for the season will be Friday, June 21st. We will have open fencing the last week in June, then we’re closed for a week for Summer Nationals.
Pre-Nationals Camp – June 24-27
This camp is designed for all fencers who are going to Nationals, all ages and all weapons. There will be warmup, footwork, some technical and tactical drills, and bouting and lesson time. We will work from 5:00 to 8:00 PM each day.
The fee for the camp is $120 per fencer. This will include at least one lesson for each fencer during camp time. If you plan to attend the camp, please pre-register on FRED so we have a rough idea of how many people are coming.
Summer Open Fencing
From July 9th through August 29th, we will have open fencing Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 9:00 PM. Open fencing is $90 per month, free for students enrolled in a camp. For summer private lessons, talk to your coach about schedules.
Monday, August 15 through Friday, August 19, 2016
Gear up for the new season with an intensive all-day competitive camp! Nationally recognized coaches Greg Jones, Christian Ford, Garik Balayan, Steve Colton, and Spencer Felt share their expertise training national medalists. We will combine footwork and cross training, technical and tactical exercises, discussions of strategy and tournament preparation, and structured bouting and lesson time. Emphasis will be on the tactics and preparation needed for success at the national level.
Camp runs from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM each day with a lunch break. Students should have at least one year of competitive fencing experience. Please bring your own gear if possible. Minimum age is 11.
The fee for the camp is $450 for the week, which includes open fencing all summer (July and August) at no extra charge.
