Story by Gabby Ross, Staff Writer

A rec fencing program will be held in the SHS cafeteria from 5PM-7PM on Thursday, April 25, and will continue weekly on Thursdays until May 31. The program will be instructed by Jonathan Reid, who has been involved in fencing for over 12 years and has coached and officiated the sport for 10 years.

The beginner program is offered from 5-6 PM for youths ages 7+ and adults. The intermediate program is offered from 6-7 PM to those ages 13+ and adults. The resident’s fee is $60 and the non-resident fee is $75.

While taking this program, you will acquire the reflexes of a boxer, the legs of a high jumper, and the concentration of a chess player. Equipment will be provided for these beginner classes, however, participants will have access to purchase their own equipment as well.
