Syracuse Musketeers Fencing Center is offering a series of fencing half-day camps, led by Coach Lubo Kalpaktchiev, for children ages 8-16. With the utmost attention to safety, students will participate in fun-filled games to promote speed, agility and coordination, develop an understanding of fencing strategy, proper footwork and techniques, and learn to fence. Students will have the opportunity to take part in Olympic-style fencing utilizing the latest technologies for electronic scoring. Good sportsmanship and fun will be emphasized each day! All equipment and protective gear is provided.
Can Beginners Participate? YES !!- All Levels Fencers Welcome:
These camps are for both kids that are new to fencing (with no experience) as well as fencers with some prior experience. Games will be played to enhance the skills necessary to fence such as coordination, agility and speed.
