|Beginner Youth Camp at Olympia FC
|| Jul 23, 2018 - Jul 27, 2018
Our camps offer a fun and engaging introduction to the sport of fencing, where body and mind work together!
Little or no experience required.
Beginner fencers will acquire basic fencing skills, including footwork, blade work, and distance control. They will be introduced to electrical equipment and understand fencing etiquette, rules and sportsmanship.
Those who already have some fencing experience will enhance their skills, learn about situational bouts and get the chance to practice longer hours.
