The All-American Fencing Academy is offering an Advanced Competitor Camp for our fencers (and perhaps some visitors!) Coach Gerhard has invited UNC Assistant Coach Zoe Loh to lead an Advanced Competitor Camp.
We need a minimum of 5 fencers to make the camp a go. The camp is open to all ages and specifically for fencers that are actively competing and would like a weekend camp to improve their skills.
The camp will include on and off strip strategies, understanding bout dynamics and how to better engage your opponent, and tactics. Coach Zoe will also be including a variety of bladework drills that include focuses on speed, second intention, and more! Footwork drills will also have focus on developing speed, form, and structure.
Date: July 12-14, 2019
Time: 1-4PM (Immediately after Coach Gerhard’s Beginners Camp)
If you are interested and plan on participating, let Coach Gerhard know immediately (email: firstname.lastname@example.org, text: 910-644-0137, or Facebook message our page. I’d like to get a definite 5 participants by June 30th, then I’ll open the online registration.
