Training for kids

 

 

Sabre fencing is a great way for kids to build fitness, agility, confidence and leadership. Our squad training sessions are designed to train speed, agility, technical skills, tactics as well as refereeing and mentoring. Squad fencers work with our professional instructors as well as with our junior competitive teams in a friendly and welcoming environment. All equipment is provided, including professional-grade safety and scoring gear.

If you'd like to watch a session, you're very welcome to drop in to our Saturday morning squad training from 10:30am-12:30pm and have a chat with our instructors.

The best way to join in sabre training at our club will depend on your age and experience level:

 

 

 

1. Under 8 years old: Private lessons

 

For kids under 8 years old, we advise starting with private lessons to gain the strength and skills needed for the group classes. Private lessons are $30 for 20 minutes, or you can get a pack of 10 for $250.

2. No or limited sabre experience, 8-17 years old

 

For kids aged 8-11: The first thing to do is visit us at 11:30 on a Saturday morning and jump straight in to our 11:30am Under-12 squad for an hour of games, footwork, technical skills and bouting. New kids join every week, so you don’t need to wait for the start of a new term.

For kids aged 12-17, come at 10:30am and jump in to our Under-15/Under-17 squad. There's plenty of new fencers in the group as well as experienced competitors, so you're welcome to join at any point in the term.

Casual sessions are $30 each including all equipment, or you can get a pack of 10 for $250, which can be used at your own pace.

3. Experienced sabre fencers, up to 17 years old

 

Our Cadet squads are intensive 2 hour training sessions every Saturday aimed at kids up to 17 years old who are training for state, national or international level competition. The fencers in this group also take part in Adult competitive squads, footwork classes and private lessons. 

We provide coaching advice and support for our competitive junior fencers at a number of state and national age-category events. Coaching support for additional events can also be arranged by request.
