Enguardians Fencing Club
Last Edited March 21, 2020
Our response to the COVID-19 virus
Following suit with other sporting clubs and organizations across the province we are temporarily suspending club activities. Our current plan is to follow the lead of the school board (HRCE) which means there will be no fencing for at least 2 weeks following the end of march break. If school closures are changed we will likely change our suspension of activities to match.
We know this is a time where our students may be going a little stir-crazy without the socialization they normally get from school and activities such as fencing, but we simply must do our part to slow the spread of this virus. In our club this becomes even more important with many of our members sharing club equipment with no way to sterilize it between uses (e.g. the inside of a fencing glove is really tough to wipe down)
If this closure becomes more long-term we may be looking at the end of this fencing season. In this case we will be issuing refunds or credits towards the fall term. We have not reached this point yet but if we do we will reach out to our members directly to try to find the best method to issue a refund.
