Mid-South Fencers’ Club has offered the exciting, dynamic Olympic, historical and Paralympic sport of fencing for people ages 7 and up in the heart of North Carolina since 2007.
The work within our community motivated us to find a way forward out of this pandemic during its peak while we were located temporarily at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park practices .
During this time, the club leadership took time to revision how it can better support all of Durham in having access to our great sport.
Whether you are looking to learn some sport basics or to train for a competitive goal, we are here to challenge, inspire, and support you in a fun and dynamic sport.
Bridge II Sports
Bridge II Sports creates opportunities for youth, adults, and Veterans with physical disabilities to ‘Find The Player Within’ through the power of adapted sports.
We believe sport empowers and changes lives on and off the court and challenges perceptions of disability in our community.
This organization is proud to provide year-round adapted sports programming and special events bringing together our athletes and the community at the new Forge facility in Downtown Durham, NC.
We recognize the value and potential of all lives.
Disability does not define people or outcomes.
Gabe St Clair is a Franciscan Hermit, living out a vow of poverty and simplicity. “I don’t charge a set fee, so anyone can show up and follow along. I am usually at Orchard Park in Durham, NC but when bad weather hits I need a place to lead. I want to keep our practice free and open to anyone at any location as a community resource for all economic levels. The Taiji and Saber forms I teach are rare, long, and complicated. I’d love to see you and your friends at Orchard Park on Mondays, Weds, and Fridays.” Gabe’s email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
