Youth Programs

Playing while you trainIn order to introduce the youth fencer aged 8/9 & up to the exciting sport of fencing, Cutting Edge Fencing offers Youth Learn to Fence & Intermediate programs. These programs, which run from September to the end of April or early May, will develop the basic fundamental skills of balance, coordination, agility, speed and reaction, while teaching the technical skills of the Canadian Fencing Federation’s Yellow Armband program. Those fencers who demonstrate an interest & ability to pursue competitive fencing training after completing the intermediate program (orange armband) will then be invited to join either the epee or sabre competitive training group. The minimum age for these programs is 8 years old.
