SFA Training Day

2016 Holyrood 49er Junior Foil (under 13)

A fun day of fencing for children aged under 13 on 1st January 2016.  The fencers will be placed in small groups to fence each other and will move around according to their results in each round - no elimination, just lots of fencing.  A great way to meet new friends, have fun and practice those skills.  All participants will receive a free gift.  

Check-in; 9-9.30am. Competition start 10am.

There will be a cafe selling lunch bags, rolls, home baking and refreshments.
