Interested in the sport of fencing but don’t know where to start? Need to brush up on fencing basics during the off season? Middle schoolers looking for a sport they haven’t tried that they could do in high school? Coaches Berardi and Orsi from the West Morris Central girls fencing team are offering a week long camp to be held in the West Morris Central High School Cafeteria, July 25-29 from 8 a.m. – noon. Open to boys and girls in grades six-12 with no experience required, the cost of the camp is $50 per person. Equipment will be provided.
Fencing basics including conditioning, footwork and the fundamentals of the weapons and bouting/competition will be covered. Guest coaches from local fencing clubs and current West Morris Fencing team members will be assisting during the camp. The week will culminate in a mini fencing tournament for participants where medals will be awarded to the top finishers in each weapon. Camp T-shirts are also included with the registration fee. The camp is a perfect low cost introduction to fencing or a great way to get in some off season conditioning.
