We love to see our students from around the area grow and to introduce new students to the sport.
Marietta, Georgia (PRWEB) March 30, 2016
East-Cobb based Premier Fencing Alliance just released its roster of youth summer camps for 2016. The club has been working throughout the year to grow the sport of fencing in Cobb County and the Metro Atlanta Area.
Club coaches said they’re excited to share the sport with students of all levels during an exciting Summer Olympics year, when they hope more people will learn about the fun and challenging sport.
All camps will take place at Premier Fencing Alliance’s club location, located between the Big Chicken and Lassiter High School. For beginning or intermediate fencers ages 7 to 11, the club offers week-long camps beginning on June 13 or July 11. For beginning or intermediate fencers ages 9 to 18, the club offers week-long camps beginning the weeks of June 6, July 18 and July 25. All equipment is provided.
“We love that we can bring this unique and fun Olympic sport to Cobb County,” said Audrey Barroso, club owner and Temple University Fencing Team alumna. “We love to see our students from around the area grow and to introduce new students to the sport.”
Barroso, also the Lassiter High School fencing team coach, has planned a fun curriculum for summer camp students that include standards like daily drills and bouting, but also incorporating video analysis and fun games centered around Olympic festivities.
“The kids just love summer camp,” said Charise Munlin, a club fencing mom whose son has been with the club since it opened. “It’s always a great group and the coaches do a great job of structuring the curriculum for all ages and levels.”
Camps are open for any fencer under the age of 18, no matter the skills level. Coaches work closely to create a fun and safe environment to advance their skills and compete with peers.
“It’s really an incredible sport,” Coach Barroso said. “Not only is there the thrill of one-on-one competition, it builds motor skills and individual confidence in a really empowering way.”
