It’s important to encourage the development process while an athlete grows into the sport.
Practices at Thrust are designed to be fun and challenging to prepare athletes for competition.
At fencing tournaments, we encourage families to take time to meet and socialize with other fencing parents/athletes, as well as take in the local experience a community has to offer whether competing locally, regionally, nationally or internationally. Balance is important in life and sport. When the two work together an athlete will enjoy life that much more and soar.
Enjoy the full experience of competition, by taking advantage of all the opportunities for growth away from competition to experience a community’s culture is equally important – restaurants, parks, special events, etc. By implementing this philosophy, a young fencer’s journey from the first‐day beginner to becoming an national ranked or world-class fencer will truly be special, memorable and less stressful.
