Salle Ossian will shortly be launching it’s “Hit Like a Girl” programme around Perthshire Schools. Commonwealth Gold medallists Sarah-Jane Hampson and Jess Corby will be visiting schools to introduce girls and boys to the Olympic sport of fencing.
Salle Ossian Head Coach, Prof. Phil Carson says, “Fencing is the fastest of the Olympic sports and when you get hit by these women athletes – you stay hit! Fencing teaches a high level of physical literacy, control and balance and is ideal for both boys and girls to learn together. But it is fundamentally a fight, you get to hit each other a lot”.
Working together with Perth and Kinross Council, Perthshire Schools and Live Active teams around the county, our Commonwealth Champions will be taking their skills, athleticism and enthusiasm to get kids active and participating in this great sport.
Salle Ossian are also running introductory courses in Perth, beginning Monday 11th January 2016.
