Fencing

This program will introduce the basics of fencing, or help experienced fencers improve their skills. OPREC Fencing is taught by Orchard Park’s own fencer, Toby Burns.

Fencing improves balance, strength, and coordination of both the upper and lower extremities.  The fencing stance and movements will increase tone and strength of your quads, hamstrings, and glutes.  Arm and shoulder strength will also increase as you fence your way to fitness and fun!  

Not only is this program fun, stress relieving, and a great workout, it also looks great on college applications! Equipment is provided.

*Advanced fencers are now able to use electronic equipment for more intense training!
