Sunday October 22, 2017

    4:00 PM



    9:00 PM


Beginner and Intermediate Coach Clinic:  Oct 22rd 4-9 pm.

Maître Tomassini needs little introduction.  He is one of the legendary coaches in foil fencing, having coached numerous top athletes such as Valentina Vezzali to championship levels.  He is, also, a true coach at heart and in his Avignon club teaches youth from age 8 with dedicated passion.  Duel Nature Fencing, Stratford Fencing Club and the Ontario Fencing Association are pleased to welcome him to Ontario where he will assist Ontario’s coaches and athletes, whatever level, to discover new insights on their lessons, drills and practices.

The Ontario Fencing Association may offer to its member clubs and their coaches a bursary.  Please see Maxime Brinck Croteau, Technical Director, about the value and details if interested.

The focus on this clinic will be youth development and beginner fencing.  Spend time with Maître Tomassini as he demonstrates exercises, drills and lesson that reinforce distance, timing and basic blade control.  This clinic is designed to help new, or nearly new, coaches develop essential rudimentary skills.  Each coach should try to bring one developing fencer to work with.  The athlete is free. 

The clinic will be capped at 14 coaches to ensure that each has adequate time with the Maître.

Cost: Coaches 125$
