Dear Darien Parents:
Our fall/winter semester is just about to end and we wanted to congratulate all of our fencers on a great first half of the year. Over the past three and a half months, everyone has worked very hard to learn the basics of footwork, bladework and strategy. We had several internal competitions and competed as a unit in the Candlewood Holloween tournament where we got valuable competitive experience and even won a medal or two! Congratulations on that.
We have some great plans in store for the upcoming semester with Coach Dima offering more private lesson time, upgrades to our scoring devices and a few more tournaments where we will represent Darien and go for the gold in multiple age categories.
The following dates constitute the 2016 winter/spring class schedule:
1/10, 1/24, 1/31, 2/7, 2/14, 2/28, 3/6, 3/13, 3/20, 4/3, 4/17, 4/24, 5/1, 5/8, 5/15, 5/22, 6/5, 6/12, 6/19
There are a total of 19 classes. The per-class cost for the semester will remain the same – the total semester tuition is $1520.00. The club accepts credit cards.
Please be sure to renew your club fees this upcoming Sunday so there is no interruption in your fencer’s training. In addition, please confirm with us your private lesson time slot. (If you haven’t started with private lessons, please consider doing so as the skills learned will supercharge your fencer’s development and make the group classes that much more valuable.
Have a wonderful holiday break and a great New Year!
