We still have a few open slots at our Pre-Nationals camp next week.
This fencing day camp will be coached by Aaron Kandlik and Eric Soyka. Anyone participating at Summer Nationals is welcome. Students should be prepared for multiple private lessons, tactical situations, as well as a lot of bouting.
The Camp will run from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM. Please pre-register if you plan on attending.
This past Wednesday night we held a mid-holiday foil tournament and had great turnout! Within less than 2 weeks we brought together 15 fencers to make the event a C1 (missed being a B1 by 1 “D” Rated fencer!). We had some talented fencers attending the event including Ethan Patterson (“A” rated foilist from Gristmill) and William Barnhart (“B” Rated foil fencers from The Phoenix Center).
2 “D” ratings were earned in the competition by Josiah Patterson and Eric Soyka. William Barnhart and Ethan Patterson met in the Gold Medal Round. They had a great bout which Will won 15-13. Will was undefeated in the event scoring a total of 75 touches and getting hit only 31 times. This gives Will a total indicator of +44!
We certainly hope to hold more events like this in the future! Keep checking in to find out when we hold more tournaments or to see other people’s views on the tournament.
How does your coach celebrate the holidays?
At the Phoenix Center if it stands still long enough, Jeff will decorate it!
