Making a difference on Touche’ at a time” is the pledge and promise of the Thrust Athletic Foundation. We are a 501c3 corporation dedicated tot enhancing the training and academic excellence of Rockland and Westchester country youth involved in the sport of fencing. The foundation’s mission is to offer youth the opportunity to enhance their lives through the sport of fencing with year-round training, mentorship and academic tutorial programs. We emphasize health and wellness during our weekly training sessions. Athletes learn lessons of preparation, focus, conditioning, sportsmanship, competition, etiquette as well as goal setting to reach their athletic accomplishments.
Students grades are monitored weekly. Free tutorial help is provided to students in English, Math, Foreign Languages and Science. Additionally, guest speakers from various fields are invited to speak with students about the importance of education as it relates to preparing for college, SAT scores, professional pursuits and their ability to balance education with interest in fencing.
Participants in the program engage in teaching, volunteering, outings and fundraisers designed to expose them to different experiences and ways in which they can contribute to their communities. Thrust Athletic Foundation is committed to conversations with its participants about their education, social lives and making smart choices.
