*Sports: Fencing // Grades: 2-12

The Sport of Fencing is one of the original five sports held at the Modern Olympics in 1862 and has featured at every Summer Olympics since.  
Students of Fencing enjoy both physical and cognitive benefits.
Fencing utilizes strategy and quick reflexes. Your opponent can make an attack in any number of ways and your defence needs to come in a split second, and in the next split second, you've got to make your attack.

Fencers learn good sportsmanship, self-discipline, gain quick reflexes and how to compete independently. They gain a sense of accomplishment when winning and learn to profit from their defeats. They learn to make complex decisions, analyze problems, and think fast on their feet. These ideals help children reach their potential in many areas other than fencing.

• They are active and doing something, not being passive receptacles for programming beamed out from the TV.

• Fencing helps children get fit – you can’t “sword fight” without a good bit of movement!

• Fencing helps children learn to pay attention and to develop their decision-making 

• Because fencing is an individual sport, the fencer is solely responsible for their success or failure, which becomes a great lesson in responsibility.

• At the same time, being a member of a fencing club gives the fencer an opportunity to participate in a group setting, where friendships are made and true sportsmanship is encouraged.

• Many top ranked colleges have fencing teams and are always looking for experienced fencers. While scholarships are few and limited to top-level competitors, having fencing on your college resume provides you with another way for your child to market themselves.
