We’re excited to announce the date for the first Youth Circuit event for the 2014-2015 season: Saturday, November 8, at the Los Olivos Elementary School.
Also, there are a few changes to the Youth Circuit this season. First, the points and competition factors have been adjusted. Second, there will only be three events this year, so points from all three will count. Third, you must compete in at least two events in order to be included in the final results.
Last, to further support fencing for our youth and high school age fencers, this year the clubs will be hosting two fencing clinics. The first will be in October at the San Luis Highlanders. These clinics will be an opportunity to study tactics and techniques together as a community, working with coaches and fencers from other clubs. We hope everyone will attend.
