Training to Compete Fencing Camp

Each camper will acquire a better understanding of practice techniques, fundamental actions, bout structure, strategy, tactics and conditioning. The material of the camp program should enable the camper to be more effective in training and competing.  

Point in line-foil

The camp is specifically designed for all Profencing members to diagnose and recommend technical and tactical objectives to be implemented during training and competitions.

 

During the camp all members  will be doing a  conditioning and agility test. Each  fencer will receive a training log with recommendations for specifics training loads for each training and competitive period for the whole fencing year ( September to July).
