FENCING GEAR REQUIREMENTS:
Option 1: Purchasing new
I recommend Absolute Fencing Gear, Inc.
If one chooses to purchase and needs assistance, I am available at email@example.com to help.
Option 2: Rental from Coach Michael
$50.00 plus a $100.00 deposit for an 8-week session.
At the end of the last class, the deposit will be issued upon returning the fencing gear to Coach Michael. I will set up appointments for you and your fencer in 15-minute slots for those who need rental fencing gear. Fencers will be fitted for equipment. Fencers will take the equipment home with them.
