Children’s Beginners Course – Swordfry

If your child is interested in learning to fence, our Swordfry program is designed just for them!

Swordfry is a beginners course for children from the ages of 8 years and covers the basics of fencing. The program runs on Saturday mornings (10am – 11am) of the school term at Belmont City College gym. Run by senior fencers, the course incorporates games, footwork, and specialised exercises, to help children learn skills (such as balance, spatial awareness, etc) and to ensure they have a great time. Safety is important to us and all appropriate fencing and protective equipment is provided. It is recommended that your child wears long pants and gym shoes.

We suggest that children join the program from the first week of the school term to get the most out of the course. There are four courses each year. To see when the next course starts please click Calendar and for the cost please click on Membership Fees.
