YOUTH TEAM LEAGUE WORKSHOP
This is a special workshop offered to Gryphon Fencing students during the fall and spring. The goal of the league is to introduce young fencers to the world of competitive fencing in a fun and supportive atmosphere. During the series of workshops, students will learn about the rules and requirements of competitive fencing. They will learn to analyze their opponents and develop tactics. The coaches will provide feedback on each child's performance. The students will be asked to provide feedback to their teammates. Good sportsmanship is expected from all participants, parents and spectators. (For boys and girls 9 to 12 years old.)
League Format: Each team will consist of at least 3 fencers. Each team will have a mix of skill levels, but the coaches will try to balance the teams for strength across the league. All members will fence an equal number of bouts (except in cases of illness, etc.). Each team will fence all the other teams once during the course of the workshops. They will then fence off in a direct elimination round. The league is open to all Gryphon Fencers of an "intermediate" skill level. Please feel free to speak with either Coach Holmgren or Coach Price if you have any questions.
