2014 RJCC At Mission
The Cadet and Junior events in all weapons and both genders will be held.
The Regional Junior Cadet Circuit (RJCC) is sanctioned by USA Fencing. RJCCs are a group of events throughout the country for fencers in the junior and cadet age categories in all six weapons. They provide an opportunity for young athletes to experience elite competition, earn regional RJCC points, and prepare for future national events while limiting travel time and expenses for the fencers and families. This RJCC will provide a qualifying path for 2016 Junior Olympics and the 2016 July Challenge. Regional RJCC Points will be awarded to all fencers in the competitive field who reside in Region 3. The Athlete’s Handbook:(http://www.usfencing.org/athletehandbook) contains detailed information on qualifying pathways for the Junior Olympics and the July Challenge and should be used as the appropriate reference document.
