Co-Operative High School Credit:
Student-Athletes who wish to pursue fencing on a post-secondary level ought to consider enrolling into a High Performance Athlete (HPA) Co-Op credit course. Students can enroll in the program at their respective high schools and through the help of Tim Svidnytskiy and Toronto Fencing Club you can receive a high school credit.
By enrolling into a HPA Co-Op program student-athletes will receive:
1. Extra time DURING SCHOOL day to focus on improving their grades towards University Applications.
2. Will have more time dedicated to fencing training
3. May use this time to prepare for SAT exams
4. Important to remember, American Universities will consider BOTH the student’s grade and their fencing achievements before offering a spot on the fencing team.
If you would like to bring fencing to your school and/or work place or would like more details on High Performance Athlete program do not hesitate to contact Tim Svidnytskiy.
We can bring all equipment and fencing knowledge straight to you; Or you can get fully immersed into fencing at Toronto Fencing Club.
