  • Fencing

    YEL Fencing classes feature: Our trademarked Teach It! Practice It! Play It!® methodology Teach It! – Each class the our coaches teach a number of fencing skills. Our coaches are trained to give athletes micro-lessons where they give athletes a snippet of information (proper parry technique, as an example). Each class builds on techniques from the previous class. Practice It! – During the Practice It! portion of class, athletes line up opposite a partner and practice the technique while standing still. Next, they practice the same technique, but add in footwork, or slightly more complex blade work that leads to the technique in focus. Athletes then rotate partners every two minutes or less. This way athletes get practice with partners of varying skills, heights, and abilities. Play It! – Kids love to compete. During the Play It! portion of each micro-lesson, we game-ify the technique taught into mini-games for the fencers. Then we end each class with 10-20 minutes of match-style fencing (called “bouts”). Again, fencers rotate partners throughout this portion of class. Dynamic coaches – Dedicated, well trained, and kid-friendly coaches is the biggest measure of success for our programs. A quality coach can mean the world of difference for young fencers. Quality coaches can help the student enjoy the sport more easily, learn technical skills more quickly, and develop their acumen at a greater pace. YEL coaches are driven to follow our mission to engage youth to think, learn, and play well. Comprehensive curriculum – YEL fencing has dozens of lessons for the absolute beginner to students who are training to compete in regional tournaments. Safety – Fencing is among the safest of sports, if safety guidelines are followed. To ensure this, we ask that all students have their fencing mask on anytime they are holding a sword or are around anyone with a sword. We also use foils (the weapons for one of the fencing sports) with safety tips, thick gloves, thick jackets, chest plates, and plastrons for older fencers. The rules and techniques we teach also enhance students safety. Hey, no one wants to be deemed a “Safety Violator” by their coach. Equipment – YEL provides all the required fencing equipment for students. We do suggest that if students are interested in the sport for the long term, that those fencers consider purchasing their own equipment.
