Please join us for a premiere RYC in Northern CA!
The venue is easily accessible from highway-101, with a dedicated parking lot. We will be featuring 16-strips (grounded strips for finals) plus a dedicated spectator space, great referee cadre, equipment vendor, professional armoring team, and great tournament efficiency you have come to expect from the tournament operations team of Peninsula Fencing Academy.
We are pleased to fly in national/international referees in addition to hand-picked cadre of strong local/regional referees. The team of referees include those who have officiated final rounds of Div I Championships, NCAA National Championships, and World Cups! In addition, we will also be featuring a team of armorers who worked at the Olympic Games and World Cups, including a member of the SEMI Commission (that means he REALLY knows what he's doing!)
Regional Youth Circuit is part of a qualification path for North American Cup and Summer National Championships! Participants in Y10/Y12 events (of 2 or more competitors) are eligible to compete in Y10/Y12 NAC, while the winner of Y14 events qualify for the Summer Nationals.
