Updates to the SBHS Fencing Training Program Policy for 2019

Hi all,

I’ve been working in consultation with the school executive and coaching team over the last few months to develop an improved training program policy that will help us achieve the goals set for our Fencing program. We aim to make the program more sustainable and efficient to manage while
providing opportunities for our experienced fencers to remain competitive in inter-school fencing activities.

The SBHS Fencing Training Program Policy for 2019 onward can be found here:

Please contact the MIC if there are any issues or questions relating to this document.

Stay tuned for updates on try-outs for the 2019 season.
