Participants ages 9 through adult will get a quick introduction to the basic techniques of foil fencing. By the end of the evening, you will be crossing swords with your classmates in some actual bouts under the supervision of the instructor. While a single evening won’t make you an expert fencer, it will give you a chance to experience this exciting Olympic sport, not to mention a good work-out! All equipment will be provided, students only need to bring clothing you can easily move in, sneakers and a water bottle. Please call the office at 802-372-8889 for sizing your equipment.
