News and events

Having Level 0 coaches will allow fencing clubs to provide more training opportunities and better accommodate beginners, so please think about getting involved.  For example, a Level 0 coach could run warm-ups, or show a new person the basics, if the head coach is busy running a junior class or one-on-one lessons.  It will also be helpful in running fencing demonstrations at schools and community events.

For teachers and teenagers, this will allow you to run a basic fencing class at a school.  And it will look great on your CV for volunteering or professional development.

See attached flyer for more details.  Please RSVP to president@whitehorse.riposte.com.au

Suitable for adults and for teenagers aged 12-17, this class will provide an introduction to fencing, with a focus on sabre.  The course will involve four 1.5 hour classes.  Warm up and footwork will be at 7.30, small group lessons from 7.45-9pm, followed by an hour of electric bouting (this hour is optional practice).  The club sabre competition will be in August, so for those wanting to try out sabre, this is a good time to start learning.

Details are: Tuesdays, 7.30pm-9.00pm, St Johns Hall, 494 Whitehorse Road (Maroondah Highway), Mitcham

$120 for non-members, $80 for members.  All equipment provided.
