Fencing #2-Helena (Grades 9-12)

Have you ever wondered what the sport of fencing is all about? Sign up today to learn more and take part in this unique sport. Who knows? You may be a natural at it! Fencing is the sport of swordplay. Fencers face off and duel each other not for blood or honor, but points. Fencing is a great example of a sport where you compete one on one but you're working together as a group to win the day's match. Fencing requires strength, speed, balance, and a very sharp mind. Fair play and sportsmanship are essential.

Instruction is will be given by an enthusiastic instructor that is a member of the United States Fencing Association. The Girl Scouts will be a trained on fencing safety and fundamentals in a group lesson. Girl Scouts will not only be learning the history of fencing but the basic techniques of sword fighting with a foil (blunted tip) and then will spar against one another! All protective equipment is provided.

A Fencing Fun Patch will be given at the end of the program!
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes with non-marking soles. No experience necessary!
