  • The fencing programs at Zeta are the highlight of my kids’ summers. They regularly remind me to check the Zeta schedule so we don’t miss registration before their favorite camp fills up.

INTRODUCTION TO FENCING

 

Introduction to Fencing is our beginner program for new students without fencing experience and for current students of our beginner classes, ages 8-12.

Participants will master the basic skills of Olympic fencing: footwork, blade moves, and tactics of fencing. They will also learn about the history and traditions of one of the oldest sports in the world and experience the values of true sportsmanship. On the last day, students will fence a tournament on fully equipped fencing strips with Olympic-standard electric scoring equipment. While students will learn about all three disciplines of modern fencing (épée, foil, sabre), they will be fencing with Olympic-style épées.

  • What was supposed to be a one-time summer activity is now my daughter’s passion. She was never seriously interested in sports until she discovered fencing. Watching her develop into a strong, mature fencer is breathtaking.
