September is the start of the 2019-2020 season! The training schedule and prices are below. I hope to see all of you at the parent’s and the fencer’s meetings in each club. Manchester will open on Monday, September 9. Rochester will open on Tuesday, September 10.
The Manchester parent’s meeting will be 7:00 pm on the first day, Monday, September 9. The Rochester parent’s meeting will be 7:00 pm on Tuesday, September 10. All groups will be fencing that day, so bring your children at the normal time (below). Please bring payment, and be ready to take notes on the upcoming competitions for your child. Also, my private lesson schedule will be set at that time. Please be there!
Fencers will have their orientation and a discussion on upcoming competitions at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, September 11 for Manchester fencers, and on Thursday, September 12 for Rochester fencers. Junior and Adult fencers who want to fence on Sundays will need to set up an contact system at the September 12 meeting to ensure enough people will be there for those Sunday practices.
We will have our first Seacoast Team meet on Sunday, September 15, at our Manchester location. This is also a great time to pick up used jackets and knickers for growing young fencers! It is also the last day to place an order new equipment for the September club order.
Y-14 Mixed Foil, Mixed Foil (all ratings), and Mixed Epee (all ratings) will start at 10:00 am.
Y-10 Mixed Foil and Y12 Mixed Foil will start at 1:30 pm.
Please be at the club 30 to 45 minutes before the start time. Sign up on the link below: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1iH32SgKa9pigxthRo73NjtMPmIeUIh1K3bimcToevQs/edit#gid=0
