Parents and Young Fencers:
Thank you for considering the AFA Fencing Camp this summer! Fencing is a very physical, strategic, and technical sport. Our camp works to improve the individual in this challenging and exciting sport.
The AFA Fencing Camp offers all fencers ways to improve their technique, strategy, and conditioning. Our goal is to afford campers an opportunity to practice and develop their skills while receiving excellent instruction from successful intercollegiate coaches and fencers. We emphasize instruction (coaching) in all three weapons and provide a great deal of information on everything necessary to become a more successful fencer. There is also an emphasis on improving coordination and conditioning.
ALL CAMPERS MUST BRING THEIR OWN EQUIPMENT, AND BE FULLY EQUIPPED IN ORDER TO ATTEND CAMP.
Fencing equipment should include but is not limited to:
- Fencing Jacket
- Foil or Saber Lame
- Underarm protector
- Chest Protector (females)
- Long socks
- Fencing glove
- Body Cords
- Athletic shoes (fencing shoes)
- Electric weapons of choice
- Water bottle
In addition to these items, campers need to wear gym shorts and t-shirts every day for other activities besides fencing.
On an average day, fencers will spend a couple of hours exercising, stretching and doing footwork, and time playing tactical games. After lunch the afternoon is spent learning and perfecting fencing skills and bouting. There are occasional video viewing sessions geared towards tactics. Expect to work hard but also have a lot of fun.
Again, thank you for considering our camp. We are confident it will be a rewarding experience and contribute to future success in fencing.
