GGFC Youth Develoment Philosophy

The Silver Level emphasizes basic physical sport skills and introduces basic training concepts to the young fencer. This includes all the physical literacy skills of the Bronze level but goes further by introducing speed work, agility exercises, balance work, and body weight exercises. Fencing skills are continued at a more advanced level and include tactical frameworks, compound actions, basic mental performance skills and group lessons during class. The primary focus is on “Develop and Challenge” which gives the young fencer the fundamental basis to be an athlete in any sport. The ideal age range for this level is 9 -12.

This means that the fencer has committed to the sport of fencing and is making it a priority.
