Silicon Valley Fencing Center offers summer camps for boys and girls age 6-10 and 11-14 who want to try fencing for the first time and those with very little fencing experience.
Our fun-filled fencing camps teach children the basics of the sport, and are an ideal way to start fencing. Campers will learn basic rules, footwork and blade work. Campers will get to fence every day as well as playing fun developmental games.
All necessary equipment is provided by SVF; please wear workout clothes with long pants (such as sweat pants) and non-marking athletic shoes. Each child should bring a water bottle or sports drink to stay well-hydrated and a snack.
NOTE: All campers must be picked up within 10 min after the end of the camp session.
Camps are for new fencers, both boys and girls ages 6-10 and 11-14, and space is limited.
As part of our effort to prevent a potential spread of COVID-19, we have established the following rules and procedures to follow by all our staff and participants:
No handshakes or physical contact between camp/class participants or coaches;
No shared equipment can be used; every participant will be assigned his/her own equipment to use during camp/class to avoid sharing;
All participants, including staff, must sanitize/wash hands before class, during breaks, and after class/camp;
No shared objects during warm-ups or classes – including balls, relay batons, etc.. All games that use shared equipment will be canceled;
Although water fountain is available, all participants are required to bring their own water bottle in order to limit contact with the water fountain;
Anyone showing any signs of sickness will be immediately sent home.
Also, every day we spend more a significant effort in each location thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing every contact surface – from doorknobs, restrooms, tables, and other areas.
