Starting with the Nov-Dec 2018 session, the Hadley youth program will change its focus from foil/epee to epee only.

Foil programs in Longmeadow and West Springfield are unaffected, and other programs in Hadley are unaffected. This shift allows the club to focus its instruction by weapon in each location better.

Please address questions and comments to coaches directly.
