Kingston Fencing Club - Active Zoom

Time: 6pm

Recurring every week on Tuesdays

The Zoom link will be shared via email for existing members. For guests please use the Contact form to obtain a link.

Do not share the zoom link, meeting ID and password in public places or on social media.

Further Information

No sparring – only individual activity. Therefore no masks / jackets etc required.

U18’s please include a parent / guardian in your plans for attending.

As host, I am not recording this (video or audio).

No need to bother about backgrounds but do ask for support from your household to ensure you have a safe area.

Allow enough space to move several metres. A hallway might be enough. Take a look for hazards eg trips. If outdoors, shadow your screen from the sun.

If there are two or more participants with blades in the same household then the space must prevent any danger.

Costs

The Zoom training is free to members. For non-members we ask for a voluntary contribution of £3 - £5 per Zoom session to cover club costs.

Please use the bank details contained in our membership form quoting a reference of "ZOOM_name" where "name" is your Zoom screen name.

Thanks in advance for your contribution as it helps support the club in these difficult times.

Equipment

Consider wireless headphones if you have them, however we find that using a Bluetooth speaker is OK while you are on mute. Example wireless headphones (not endorsed but just to give idea).

No need for any account or download. You can join with any device eg mobile phone / tablet / PC; just click the main link or paste to browser address bar.

Aim a camera to give coach enough view. Items suck as a goose-neck clip might help. Examples from ebay (no endorsement, just aiming to help show the sort of thing - search gooseneck mobile phone holder):

Another possible set-up could be to put a laptop on a chair with camera angled to include feet, then phone with the participant with headphones (or speaker). Many equipment options!
