COVID Safety Protocols (as of 6/14/2022)

Personal

 

  • Face masks are optional for all fencers. You are certainly welcome to wear one. 

 

  • All personal gear must be taken home after every training session. 

 

  • If you don’t feel well, please don’t come to practice.

 

  • If you know you’ve been exposed to someone with COVID-19, don’t come to practice and let Coach Brian know. If you have tested positive, let Coach Brian know right away so we can manage any further actions.

 

Spaces

 

  • There are wipes, disinfectant spray, and hand sanitizer available for all to use. Frequent handwashing/hand sanitizer is encouraged.

 

  • The lounge has limited access, and the little bathroom is off limits. Please use the large bathroom at the end of the hallway.

 

 

Fencing Rules

 

  • Salutes only for lessons and bouts. Additional blade taps are fine as well. No handshakes.

 

  • Minimal yells, screams, or loud vocalizations.

 

  • Fleching and intentional infighting are permitted again. However, you can still use this opportunity to train with every target in front of you and broaden your repertoires with distances and timing.
