Ten 1-hour sessions introduce students to the basics of fencing.

This physical education program uses the sport of Olympic-style foil fencing as a vehicle to help children ages 7 to 13 develop self-confidence and body awareness, physical fitness, sportsmanship, and self-discipline. Students will receive basic instruction in modern fencing, safety, proper use of equipment, rules, offense and defense. Fencing instruction is supplemented with various games and exercises. Students who show interest and ability will be encouraged to continue their development in the sport, and eventually to progress to more advanced group or individual instruction.

Students should bring clean sneakers, socks, loose fitting long pants, a color-fast t-shirt, and a water bottle. Young gentlemen must wear an athletic-cup and supporter.
