QFA Holiday Training Camp (30 June - 1 July)

QFA is hosting a Training Camp for Junior fencers on Thursday 30 June and Friday 1 July. There will be three different groups running during the camp:

  • Learn to Fence - for those who have little or no experience of fencing (0-3 months)
  • Beginner Foil/Epee/Sabre - for those who have some experience of fencing (3-12 months). This is also a great opportunity to learn a different weapon if you have previously only been training in one.
  • Intermediate and Advanced Foil/Epee/Sabre - For those who have been fencing for more than one year, and is particularly recommended for those fencers travelling to Sydney to compete in the Australian U15 and U17 Championships at the beginning of July. The camp will include sessions on tactical and technical development for both individual and team competitions, as well as information on procedures and equipment for National Competitions.

DATE AND TIMES: Thursday 30 June and Friday 1 July. The camp runs from 9:00-4:00 each day, with a lunch break at around 12:00.

MEMBERSHIP: All participants must be School Fencer or Junior Members of QFA for 2016 – register for membership from the QFA Website

VENUE: M.A. Howell Indoor Sports Centre, Brisbane Grammar School, Gregory Terrace, Brisbane

COST: The cost for the camp is $50 per day, or $85 for both days. Fencers registered to travel to the Australian National U15 and Cadet Championships in Sydney receive a 20% discount.

REGISTRATION: To participate in the Camp, please register using QFA’s Online Registration System

 

WHAT TO BRING: Participants should wear comfortable sports clothing. They should bring a water bottle and as much fencing equipment as possible (although some equipment may be available to borrow if required).
