OSM Fencing will be reopening its doors this month on Tuesday the 23rd. We will be resuming regular club fencing while postponing new Beginner Program classes until further notice. We welcome all our members to come back and join us in some fantastic fencing while also extending the invitation to all fencers in the community. In celebration for our reopening, club fees for the remainder of June are waived!
In recognition of current concerns over COVID-19, OSM Fencing has prepared a series of new Health & Safety Protocols that will be in effect until further notice. These protocols have been approved by Braefoot Community Association and by Saanich Rec. Please see the attachment for details on these new protocols and policies.
Additionally, we will no longer be maintaining a communal club equipment system (explained in the Health & Safety Protocols) but will be ensuring equipment and gear is still available. A deposit of $50/Beginner Program student and $100/Intermediate & Advanced student will be required to secure a set of equipment and gear for the duration of your registration with the club. This deposit will be returned once all club equipment and gear are returned undamaged.
Finally, the club capacity has been limited to 10 students/session until further notice. To ensure you have a space on a designated day, please email or call (paid registration beginning July will guarantee a space).
