DYNAMO EST. 1998
“From Beginner to Olympian”
Over the past 20 years of the club’s existence, Dynamo athletes have become mainstays on Canada’s National Teams and have, through hard work and discipline, secured Dynamo’s spot as Canada’s premier Fencing club. Dynamo’s head coach and founder Maitre Victor Gantsevich has coached National Teams in Three (3) different countries and is currently the Head Coach of Canada’s Senior Mens Team.
Additionally, Dynamo has embraced its role as an ambassador of the sport of Fencing in Canada. Since 2013, Dynamo has proudly stepped into its role as a key partner of the Vancouver Men’s Epee World Cup held every year in Richmond B.C. This event is considered to be one of the Top Five (5) most prestigious Epee tournaments in the World and the only one of its kind in North America.
Dynamo’s spacious premises feature Twenty (23) competition-size metallic Fencing strips, target work stations, a fully equipped gym, dining space, games room, and a dedicated quiet (wifi enabled) space for young members to complete schoolwork before and after training. Dynamo also possesses a Pro Shop with a wide selection of fencing equipment, customized to ensure optimal performance. Apart from seasonal and year-round programs, the club also offers evening drop-in opportunities, training camps, birthday parties and corporate events.
Dynamo will always be a cornerstone of Fencing in Canada and will continue to strive toward the ultimate goal of producing Canada’s first Olympic medal in Fencing. As Dynamo continues to grow, we will maintain our steadfast dedication to our founding principle of utilizing fencing to help shape the next generation of Canada’s Youth into strong, motivated, and disciplined members of society.
