Start your Olympic quest today; the Introduction to Fencing Program introduces the youth fencer, ages 8 to 12, to the fun, fitness, and facts of fencing. The basics of footwork are introduced to the students along with the equipment and methods of scoring used in Epee fencing. General fitness is developed through games, drills, and bouting. The coaching staff will evaluate every student's progress in each class, and will inform the students/guardians that he/she is eligible to take private lessons and move to the next level. When the students are ready they will be invited to the Youth Epee Program.
