In all Y10 events, fencers must use blades that are 30" or 32" (i.e., blades that are designated a "0" or "2"). There are no exceptions to the attire and equipment rules. You must have proof of valid USFA membership OR join the USFA at the event*. If you have not received your membership card yet for this season, but are listed on the usfencing.org membership list, you can now sign in and print out a temporary card!
