About Youth Rapier (Fencing) Combat

Youth under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by a parent or authorized guardian (guardian consent form) AND a consent to participate (minor waiver) must be signed at practice or on file with the Society. Children may only participate in rapier combat, and not in Cut and Thrust. Most youth fencers won’t spar with others until they have learned the basics.

How to Participate

We offer weekly combined practices with the Barony of Wiesenfeuer.

Between the 2 local baronies we have plenty of loaner/protective gear. You will still need to follow a few clothing rules and bring at least one piece of equipment. Drink plenty of water before practice and ask your doctor about any medical conditions. Wear long pants that fit loosely, a good set of sneakers and have a long sleeve shirt handy that covers all the way to your wrists AND overlaps the top of your pants (approx 6 inches), so that no skin shows at the midriff when moving around.. Wear socks long enough that your pant legs overlap by 4 inches. No skin should be visible between the pants and shoes. Participants must provide their own sports cup.

Practices are on hold at this time due to Covid-19 restrictions, but this page will be updated as soon as our activities resume.

In the meantime, feel free to join the Salle de Storm Weasels group on Facebook, get to know people, and ask questions.
