1et International foil camp from the 22nd-26th October in Dunkerque / France.
From U11 to U13s (2010-2007) confirmed fencers and competitors.
1st international competition « Challenge Jean Bart »
For U11 and U13 age groups on the 26th October.
The camp aims for a sporting, cultural and educational exchange between young foil fencers from different origins.
Les activités sportives sont aussi des occasions de rencontrer des personnes en dehors de l’école, du travail et de la famille. On découvre des personnes différentes avec qui on peut vivre des moments d’échange et de partage. Cela amène aussi à participer à des évènements sportifs publics, de s’amuser et de se sentir appartenir à un groupe en dehors de ses références habituelles. Par ailleurs, pratiquer un sport, surtout en compétition, apprend aussi à gérer la rivalité avec les autres, à ne pas se sentir trop mal quand on perd et à trouver sa place au sein d’une équipe.
