Give this incredible sport a try!
We are now offering a special 8 week program for beginners to come and try this exciting sport, running 4 terms a year.
Fencing is a great sport for kids of all ages (we take children from the age of 7). Cognitively, fencing is a tactical sport - a physical game of chess...and a lot of fun! This course for beginners will give fencers the chance to try each of the 3 weapons; Foil, Sabre and Epee.
Safety is paramount. Fencing is statistically safer than sports like soccer or badminton, and we make sure that all our fencers are safe, with protective clothing that conforms to National and International standards. It is our job take care of the kids - right down to warming down and stretching at the end of the session to avoid injuries. All equipment will be supplied by the NSW Fencing Centre for the 8 weeks of the course.
The cost of the course is $400 per term, with weekly classes on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 4-5pm and beginners can attend from 1-3 classes each week.
Importantly, don't be nervous. We know walking into somewhere for the first time, not knowing anyone, can make anybody anxious, but Fencing is a remarkably welcoming sport. You can go to any fencing venue in the world and be welcomed with smiles and genuine enthusiasm. Fencers love their sport and we want your child to love it too. If they just want to come and watch, feel free! And we'd be happy to chat if they have any questions.
We understand that you may not want to commit to a new sport straight away. That's why we are making it easy. The best part is that everything is included. All the safety gear, all the training. Just turn up, join in and start having the time of your life.
And if (well, when...) you love it and want to continue, we have further fencing development pathways at the NSW Fencing Centre with World Class coaching in all 3 weapons after the initial 8 weeks are finished.
The NSW Fencing Centre is the home of the Australian National Foil and Sabre coach, Antonio Signorello, as well as NSW State Squads where State and National Team fencers come to train. It is also the location for all State and School fencing competitions.
3pm to 5pm every Saturday from February to mid December.
