THE NEW FENCING YEAR BEGINS…Sat 30th Jan 2016

THE NEW FENCING YEAR BEGINS….
Saturday 30 January is the first training session for the year and we look forward to catching up and getting back into form.
2016 membership forms are available on the Cavs website:  http://www.cavaliers.com.au/p/forms.html
Membership fees for Juniors and Seniors remain the same as 2015.

  • $370 for Seniors
  • $300 for Juniors
  • $270 for Bladez
Bladez membership fees will increase to $270 for the year as we wish to increase the intensity of the Bladez group to assist them in their transition to higher level groups. The Bladez members will have some tuition from a senior coach during their session. New Bladez members will commence on the first Saturday of each month.

Membership fees for 2017 will be reviewed at the end of this year.



COACHING
Transition Courses – 5 weeks
  1. Once a Bladez member turns 13, they need to become a Junior member. In order to assist in the transition, we will be offering a 5 week transition course in specific weapons. After the transition course, they are welcome to join in the Juniors group.
  2. After you have completed a Beginner’s Course we don’t simply throw you in at the deep end and expect you to know everything. Once a beginner completes the beginner’s course, we will be offering a Transition Course in each weapon to develop greater depth of information and skill to assist you to start the journey that is learning to fence. 
If you complete a Transition Course for one weapon we still recommended that you complete the Transition Course for any other weapons you want to learn at a later stage. Transition courses will commence at the end of each Beginner’s Course so you will never have to wait too long to try your next weapon.

These transition courses are included in your membership fees and, unlike the Beginner’s Course, they only run for part of each training session so you will still get to train and socialise with the rest of the club.

Award System 
Malcolm Davies will be trialling an award system with the Sabre group. More information on this to follow.

Strength and Conditioning sessions – 1 pm
The development squad will now be replaced with strength and conditioning. This will assist fencers developing power, agility, general fitness and high intensity footwork. Open to all fencers within the club. Included in your membership fees.

Footwork Sessions 
Footwork sessions will usually be broken up to allow coaches to focus on different areas of training.  New and less experienced fencers will focus on developing strong technique while those who have been fencing for a while will focus on distance, reaction and speed.
