COVID-19 Update

Olympia Fencing Center follows the Covid-19 recommendations of the City of Cambridge, and the USA Fencing Association.
As of mid-March 2022, face masks are no longer required in the common areas, and any non-competitive classes.
However, we’ll be still aware of the highly contagious nature of the virus, and we’ll keep practicing safety protocols until further notice.

1. Rotate between the students from indoors to outdoors.
In the past, we used to do our outdoor warm-up to Danehy Field, and the kids loved it. There are hills for drills, open-air, and shade when you need it. We’ll provide plenty of cold water and sunscreen.
2. Social distancing will be practiced during lunch.
3. Sanitizing stations are widely available throughout the club.
4. Bring your own towel, clean your fencing gear often, and wash your hands.
5. Baseball hats and your own sunscreen are highly recommended, for when we go outside.
6. The rides to the park will be provided by the club, in small groups, by car.

Please bring your own lunch, individually packed and ready to serve; no sharing is permitted.
Iggy’s Bakery store is a short walk from the club, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and Bon Me are also within walking distance.

Non-club members are invited to enjoy the same rate as our students!
