Hadley youth programs to focus on epee starting Nov-Dec 2018

posted Oct 18, 2018, 11:16 AM by Taro Yamashita   [ updated Oct 18, 2018, 11:17 AM ]

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.

New Offering for Nov-Dec 2018 in West Springfield

We will be offering a new program in West Springfield for the Nov-Dec 2018 session. This is an adult women's foil class. This is for women aged 25 years or greater who have completed the introductory program or its equivalent. This course will be taught in foil, but fencers with prior experience in epee who wish to join in may do so.
