Whether your child is a beginner or intermediate fencer, our camps are designed to be a fun and challenging experience while focusing on teaching the campers proper technique, respect for the opponent and, mental and physical discipline. Unlike other fencing clubs, FSA‘s camps are limited to 16 fencers to maintain a teaching ratio of 8 fencers to 1 coach. This ratio allows your child to be engaged in a fencing focused activity during the day while providing the coaches the ability to instruct, interact and, observe the fencers to maximize your child’s learning experience. Along with verbal coaching and physical drills, several technological tools are used to aid in teaching your child. Video replay is used during the sessions to accelerate learning and allow for visual feedback. On the afternoon of the last day of camp your child will be able to put all their new skills and techniques together and test them in a camp competition. During the competition parents are invited to observe these newly acquired skills.
FSA’s coaches are nationally and internationally recognized in the fencing community. All of our coaches have competed at the highest level representing their home country in major national and international events. Several of our coaches are past Olympians and are ranked in the top 32 fencers on the current circuit.

FSA's Tune up Camps are for the serious fencer getting ready to dominate a tournament. The goal of these camps is to strengthen the fencer's ability in a specific area. Footwork and distance are incorporated as part of training specific aspects. For example questions like, How do I quickly analyze what is working in the bout and what is not? What is my best touch conversion ratio? Where is this bout headed and how do I win it? will be addressed in these camps. Each mini camp focuses on a few aspects that will help the fencer to develop a more complete and encompassing strategy and equip them with tools for improvement.
