(6) Wheelchair Fencing Youth Intro
To complete registration, you will need your 2022/2023 Membership.
This is an introduction to Wheelchair Fencing for individuals aged 9 - 14.
- Fridays 4:30 - 5:30pm
This program is designed for children and youth who experience a physical disability or have mobility restrictions. Families are welcome to register siblings (within the age range) without mobility restrictions or physical disabilities for this program, and the necessary adaptations will be provided in order to effectively participate in the program (i.e., loaner wheelchairs or seating options).
If your child experiences an intellectual or developmental disability that co-exists with their physical disability, we'd love to chat with you to ensure we are co-creating a positive and meaningful experience for your child.
