The Fencing Club is offered to all DHS and HPHS students. The season runs from September through February. Competitions are held from November until early February. The focus of fall practices is to teach inexperienced fencers the sport and get them ready for competitions. In the early fall, we practice on Mondays after school in the DHS cafeteria and Thursday evenings from 7-9pmin the IM gym. Beginning in November we typically practice at HPHS on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-9pm.
There is fencing in all three classical fencing weapons—foil, epee and saber. Electric scoring machines are available. New fencers can try out fencing with club equipment, but those who stay with it are expected to purchase some of their own equipment. Come give fencing a try!
