Competitive Class Expectations:


Training Days

Fencers are expected to train a minimum of three days per week.  We are open 6 days per week.  We understand that some weeks this may not be possible but it should be the goal.


Equipment for Competitive Class

Fencers should own the following before joining the competitive class:
  • Full uniform
  • Two electric epees
  • Two epee body cords
  • Good shoes for fencing, see coach for suggestions
  • DCF T-shirt, DCF Hoodie or DCF Warm-up jacket to wear at tournaments

 

Lessons

It is expected fencers will take one-on-one lessons with the coach. Lessons are one of the best ways to learn new things and are always helpful to improve skills quickly. 


Competition & Travel

Fencers are expected to travel for tournaments.  These take place within New Mexico, in surrounding states and across the country. Fencers should expect to attend one competition per month. Fencers pay a per diem coaching fee for tournaments DCF coaches attend. When travel is required, each Fencer attending will be assessed a portion of the coach’s expenses to travel, stay, and coach at the event (i.e. airfare, hotel, meals, etc.). This fee varies by number of athletes attending, number of days of the event, and the costs associated with travel to the event.  For more information on out-of-state competitions, please talk with a coach.
