QFA Holiday Camp

QFA will be holding a fencing camp on Monday 30th June and Tuesday 1st July. The camp will run from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm each day.

Venue: Brisbane Grammar School Sports Centre

Who should attend? All school-age fencers who are over 10 years old are welcome to attend and get some valuable training. However, the camp is targeted at those fencers preparing to attend the National Cadet and U15 Championships in Sydney and these people are strongly encouraged to attend.

What activities will be run at the camp? The camp will focus on tactical and technical development with sessions focusing on fencing fitness and footwork, as well as sessions for foil, epee and sabre.  As the camp is designed to prepare those fencers competing in the National Championships, there will also be sessions on competition preparation and warm up, competition formats and procedures, team matches and equipment maintenance and repair.

Coaches: The camp will be run by Paul Crook and David McFadyen, providing an opportunity to work the two coaches who will be travelling to Sydney before the competition.

Equipment: Fencers should bring their own equipment where possible, although some equipment may be available to borrow. Fencers attending the National Championships should bring all their gear to the camp on the Tuesday, as there will be an opportunity to have it checked before the competition

Cost: The camp costs $100, or $60 if attending a single day. Registrations and payments should be made through the Online Registration System available on the Registrations and Payment Tab. All participants must be School Fencer or Junior Members of QFA.

Please note: there will be breaks for lunch but there is no canteen there.  Fencers will need to bring their own food.
