FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)
Does My Child Need To Have any Fencing Experience?
No! Our camps include many students who are trying fencing for the first time and this is a great way to introduce your child to the sport.
Does My child Need Fencing Equipment?
No. Fencing equipment will be provided for all students during the camp.
What Does My Child Need?
1. To pack their own lunch and snacks. We have a fridge on premises where they can keep it cold.
2. Bring a water bottle. We try to take frequent water breaks but we also don’t want to lose a lot of teaching time
3. Dress in athletic attire: sneakers, long athletic pans (No shorts!) and t-shirt.
