Fencing is a completely new experience for Transition Year students. It’s a non contact sport where timing and speed are more important than strength or stamina so it can provide a level playing field for students who may not consider themselves ‘sporty’ having tried traditional team sports in the past.
Our 2021/22 TY students had an introductory 2 hour lesson giving them a flavour of the sport. Classes were taught by Patrick Dight, Professional Fencing coach and International Fencer.
Three Fencing Workshops are scheduled for our 2022/23 TY students during month of February.
