Thank you for your interest in the Youth Fencing Development Program sponsored by the Yury Gelman Foundation. This free program for children 9-13 years old is intended to introduce the sport of fencing and foster a life-long appreciation for this Olympic sport.
Please understand that your child’s participation in this program requires a commitment to attend every class. Consistent and positive participation is necessary to understand the sport and contribute to the overall enjoyment of the class. Therefore, unexcused absences, lateness, or disruptive behavior will mean a forfeiture of your child’s spot for a child on the waiting list. If your child does not receive a spot for this semester, you may be placed on the waiting list for the next semester. You will be notified via email of your child’s enrollment status.
Classes are run on a semester basis and will be held on Saturdays from 3:00 pm -4:30pm at the Manhattan Fencing Center – 15 W 37th St, 2nd floor, New York, NY 10018.
This program is for one semester only. Upon completion of a semester, if your child wishes to continue fencing, I will be happy to discuss the options. If you have further questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
