Indoor Classes Resume November 10th

4 Nov 2020 9:36 PM | Marla Desat (Administrator)

Indoor classes are back as of Tuesday, November 10th!

The schedule is the same as before the shutdown, with two small changes. First, if you and someone from your household would like to sign up for the same class, you will now be allowed to do paired drills together. Second, we've replaced our Saturday classes with a single Longsword Solo Drill class. While targeted at intermediate students, novice students are welcome to join in! 

Indoor at the Swordhall:

  • Tuesdays at 7 pm: Longsword Solo Drill
  • Wednesdays at 7 pm: No Contact Novice Longsword
  • Thursdays at 7 pm: Rapier Solo Drill
  • Saturdays at 11:30 am: Longsword Solo Drill 

Outdoor Classes Continue

While the weather permits, our Saturday outdoor classes continue! Join us for the great weather this weekend in the west end or east end.

Updates to Covid-19 Precautions

Following the latest advice from Ontario, we have adjusted the student training rings in the Sword Hall so that each fencer is 3 metres apart. We continue to require non-medical (cloth) masks to be worn for all indoor classes, and we will continue to regularly sanitize high-touch surfaces and shared equipment. To minimize contact, we're also asking students to avoid arriving too early or lingering too long after class.

Your safety is always our top priority. If you are feeling ill, stay home, and we will gladly switch your registration to another class once you are well. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know
