Fencing Squad tryouts resuming next week

As restrictions are lifting and we are coordinating with NSWFA for potential competitions in Term 3, all experienced fencers (year 8 onwards) who wish to participate in competitions are advised to attend the following Fencing training sessions next week as part of Squad tryouts:

  • Senior Fencers on Wednesday 1-3pm
  • Junior Fencers on Thursday 3:30pm to 5pm

Squad selection is required if you wish to represent SBHS in the competitions.

Please contact Mr Huynh if there are any issues or questions.

Glove purchase option for new fencers

Jeff Hardge from Swordsplay will be at training on Thursday (11/06/2020 @ 2:30pm) to sell Fencing gloves. If you wish to buy from him, please have $28 exact change ready on the day.

If you miss this opportunity, you must source your own fencing glove as you will not be permitted to fence without one.

Fencing gear requirements for the season

Returning fencers (year 8 to 12) are expected to have their own Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This includes:

  • Glove
  • Underplastron
  • Jacket
  • Breeches
  • Mask

Please make sure you get this sorted ASAP as no gear sharing will be permitted and you cannot fence without proper PPE.

New fencers:

Please make sure you return your Equipment Loan Agreement Form to Mr Huynh in the Industrial Arts Staffroom by Tuesday 09/06/2020.

If you choose to buy your own gear, you will not need to submit the form.
