Frequently Asked Questions

Is Fencing Safe?

 

Yes. Fencing is one of the safest Olympic sports.  There are NO sharp weapons in the sport of fencing! Our equipment meets all USA Fencing safety standards and is meticulously inspected for safety by our staff. ICFC instructors are CPR and First Aid certified. 

 

Do I have to buy equipment?

 

No. The ICFC provides campers with everything needed to learn how to fence. We do sell equipment if you prefer to have your own.

 

What clothing should my child wear?

 

Campers must wear clean, dry athletic shoes (no dirt or mud or grass on the soles), long pants that do not restrict movement, and a short-sleeved t-shirt. Athletic pants or comparable sportswear are preferable to tight jeans. We are following USA Fencing's pandemic protocols, so everyone at the ICFC must wear a face mask at all times.

 

IMPORTANT: ABSOLUTELY NO shorts or open-toed shoes (sandals) allowed.
