Minnows 6 – 9 years old
This introductory class meets on Saturdays from 9:00-9:45am (epee) and 9:45-10:30am (saber). This class is for our youngest fencers. Our emphasis is on movement and introducing these minnows to fencing in a safe, fun, engaging environment. New fencers can join during our complementary beginner/orientation class which is run once a month. Gear is provided for the first month. When you sign up on the app (link below) the app will direct you to either the epee or saber class. Once you’ve come for a month you may try the other class and/or stay for both.
