Fencing Training starts Wednesday 16/03/2022

Thank you to all students who completed the try-out form.

As Rowing students are preparing for HOTR and 1st and 2nd grade teams have their final GPS matches on Thursday, the try-out process will begin during the allocated training sessions next week (week 7) and continue the week after to ensure all students who filled in the try-out form have a chance to be assessed for the program.

Students trying out for Squads are expected to have their own whites (mask, jacket, underplastron, breeches, glove) and be ready for electric fencing at every training session. They may borrow body wires, lames and weapons during training. Squad selection will start with U19 Squads and work down to fill U16 then U14 Squads.

New and returning Development Fencing students will work on fitness and agility skills as part of the physical try-out process. Fencing gear will not be required for new and returning fencers in the first 2 weeks of training until try-outs have concluded.
