Still spaces on this day, most of these activities are suitable for parents so if you are a fencer or coach please see if you can point suitable people in the right direction.

Let me know if any questions.

Still spaces on all of these activities for Sunday.

This is your chance to get some training subsidised by the Youth Sport Trust, won't happen very often.

Fencers, what other chance do you get to learn something that can gain you hits in every event you complete in & only takes a few minutes every few weeks. This is what the armoury training can do for you.

Having been away I thought I'd make a belated Thankyou to all those who organised the day (esp Neil, the armourers, Child protection, those runningthe piste assistant awards, reffing and not forgetting the coaches who ran the fencers training day ) and all the other activities.
It was really appreciated by those of us who attended the various courses and the fencers looked like they had been "run ragged" certainly a lot of sweating was going on - I know my daughter and her friends felt "shattered" by the end of the day but felt it was "very good and beneficial" and they are really looking forward to "more of the same" later on and anticipating the UKSG with great glee. So again a BIG THANKYOU.
