FENB would like to invite you to participate in an Epee and Foil Training Camp aimed at developing athletes in the Learn to Train and Train to Train stages of the LTAD. The level of the camp is aimed at fencers working on Orange and Green level skills. Those at the Orange level will find that the camp offers an excellent opportunity to acquire advanced skills, and those at the Green level will be able to consolidate their skills.

In Epee, the training camp will be led by Rick Gosselin with David Themens as assistant coach. Rick is an NCCP level 3 coach who served as the Epee coach of Team NB at the 1995-2007 Canada Games. Rick is currently the head coach at the Fundy Fencing Club in Saint John, NB, and David Themens is the advanced Epee coach at the UNB Fencing Club.

In Foil, the training camp will be led by David Collins, with Diane Raiche-Philips and Elena Redkina as assistant coaches. David Collins is a Junior medalist at the National level, a double gold medalist at the Ontario University Athletics

Championships, and has been the assistant Foil coach for the Brock University Fencing Team. David Collins is currently the advanced foil coach at Fundy Fencing, and Diane and Elena coach at the Escrime K.V. Fencing Club.

The FENB AGM will be held during the camp lunch break. Lunch will be provided for FENB members.
