Mid-South Academy is our ongoing skill-based reward program designed to build confidence and cultivate physical literacy in fencing while having fun! Students are ready to join an Academy Classes once they have completed a beginner group course, a beginner individual lesson package or a beginning level summer camp. This program is open to all ages starting at age 8 through 18.
While participating in our academy program, each student will receive their own fencing glove when they begin. Students will start collecting reward stamps based on their end of month skills test. Each month, fencers will practice targeted skills as they work to achieve proficiency in a wide array of fencing and athletic skills. As students progress through the program, they will be able to earn special pins to celebrate their work and dedication.
