Meet Eleanor Harvey, Kelleigh Ryan, and Alanna Goldie (Left to Right)
These three made up 3/4 of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Women's Foil team.
Haven't heard of this team? This is the highest ranked Canadian fencing squad for the last 10 years and these three made up the back bone of it for the entirety of that time. Kelleigh and Alanna have since retired but their legacy lives on through Eleanor and the next generation who are preparing for the Paris Olympics with their sights on achieving more historic moments for Team Canada.
Epic Fencing is lucky to have Eleanor continuing to train with us, Kelleigh coaching and running the admin, and Alanna joining the Board of Directors.
Some key moments in our Epic Olympians' history:
- Olympian, Eleanor Harvey, will be attending to prepare for the upcoming Olympics Qualification tournaments
- Coaches: Elya Perritt, Alex Martin (Women's Foil National Team Coach), Kelleigh Ryan (Tokyo 2020 Olympian) and two excellent guest coaches
- Participants can register as drop ins on select days

Info & Registration:
We are excited to announce our 2023 Winter Fencing + STEM Camp! The camp will consist of half day STEM led by Engineering For Kids (EFK) and half day fencing!
The camp is open to kids 7-11 looking to try fencing for the first time or fencers with less than 6 months fencing experience.
Master Machines: Explore the world of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering!
Campers get your thinking hats on, you are introduced to the concepts of circuit design, building, and testing through various hands-on engineering activities. You will use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and improve a variety of machines and mechanical systems.
The young engineers will design, build, and test electric magnets and flashlights. The fun continues as they explore the concept of force, trajectory, and friction through designing and building hydraulic arms, launchers, rubber band racers, and more! The best part, you take home all your builds to share with family and friends.
The fencing portion will introduce kids to fencing footwork, bladework, and strategy! They will also play games designed to develop physical literacy and cooperation.
Location: EPIC Fencing Club – 3309 9 Street SE, Calgary
Ages: 7-11 (Fencers will be divided by age/experience on day one)
Dates: Dec 28-31, 2023
Registration will close at 11:45 pm on Dec 28th.
