I am a Prospective: Student Parent

Fencing

The Kents Hill Fencing program is now in its third year as a winter sport. Each year the program has had about 10 fencers: a few with fencing experience from other schools, a few with martial arts experience, and about half who are beginners.

The program teaches foil (the beginner's weapon), with some fencers working on sabre as well. There is a focus on training, technique, and skill development in an effort to start fencers on the right track for what can be a lifelong sport.

While fencing is a classic prep school sport, it is just starting to catch on in northern New England. The fencing team has recently held competitions against Exeter Academy, Colby College, and Bowdoin College. In addition, the team arranges tournaments with other area clubs.
