Fencing

fencing

Learn Fencing at the Harrisburg Area YMCA!  This Olympic sport recreates the spirit of the often romanticized age of dueling and is a sport which an individual may enjoy for an entire lifetime.

The West Shore YMCA offers a 15-16 week fencing program for youth ages 12 and up of all levels and abilities. It is a fast paced, agility sport which focuses on dexterity and precision over strength.  Learning the sport of fencing can aid in coordination, mental focus, and cardiovascular exercise.

A variety of levels are offered for beginner, intermediate, and advanced participants. The program is available at various times throughout the year  and is instructed by Daniel Checkeye and Jennifer Facchine.

Participants may register for more than one class. Fees will be applied. If you choose not to pre-register for the Wednesday and Friday night classes, then $10.00 drop-in fee will be charged each time. Beginner classes must be pre-registered.
