Camp Detail

Fencing - Introduction to the Olympic Sport

Feint, fleshe, flick, and flunge...come learn what these terms mean in the exciting and fast-paced sport of fencing! Campers will learn footwork, blade work, and some of the tactics involved in fencing as they gain flexibility through targeted stretches. The student will try out their newly learned skills by bouting with each other. They will also learn about tournaments and refereeing. Campers should wear comfortable clothing: t-shirts, long pants or sweatpants, and athletic-type shoes. All equipment is provided. Water bottle is helpful but not mandatory. Parents are invited to come and watch the last 30 minutes on Friday.

Foil Coach Colleen Gallant, of Charlotte Fencing Academy, has been fencing for more than 30 years. She trained with noted coach Michael Tarascio, which eventually led her to many tournament successes including the North Carolina Division Women's Foil Gold Medalist for 2005-2011.
