Welcome back to term 3. As we are moving to online learning due to the ongoing lockdown, all training and competitions are suspended until further notice.

No holiday fencing training

Due to the updated COVID-19 lockdown restrictions outlined today, the holiday fencing training session is cancelled.

Please try to stay fit and active during this holiday break. Here is a good YouTube channel (Fencer’s Edge) to help you train and learn more about fencing concepts while in lockdown at home:

I also like this channel that challenges and expands on fencing concepts to improve your fencing (S-Class channel):

Hope you have a safe and productive holiday break.

Holiday Fencing Training

Due to the recent update on Stay At Home orders today, there will be no holiday Fencing Training in the first week of the holidays.

Pending the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions at the end of next week, we will schedule a training session in the second week on Wednesday 07/07/2021 from 1pm to 4pm at the COLA. Students in all 3 weapons are invited to attend on a voluntary basis. Coaches and Mr Huynh will be present to supervise.

Please keep an eye on the SBHS Fencing website and SZapp for up to date news and information. If restrictions are ongoing, I will notify you with the cancellation of the session via those channels.

Also, remember to allocate time for fitness during the holidays – at the very least, skipping rope, jogging and footwork drills at home will help keep you sharp and ready for the competitions coming up in Term 3.

Hope you all have a safe and enjoyable holiday break.

Cheers,
