• Full USA Fencing regulation uniform required. Name is NOT required on uniform. Foil mask with conductive bib required. 800N Saber glove required. t.15 1. Fencers arm, equip and clothe themselves and fence at their own responsibility and at their own risk.

• USA Fencing rules apply. http://www.usfencing.org/athletes-usa-fencing-rule-book

• Ratings can be awarded, however youth events do not qualify for the E1 or D1 classifications. This means that these events are NR until they achieve C1 level or higher. See USFA ratings chart at: http://assets.ngin.com/attachments/document/0034/6264/Classification_Chart.pdf

• Fencers are responsible for ensuring accuracy of all posted information and must report errors to the bout committee immediately. This includes club affiliation, division, classification, date of birth, gender, spelling of name, etc. Errors in posted pool results must be reported to the BC immediately (within 5 minutes). Once DE round starts and tableau is posted, the pool results are final and no adjustments will be made. Check all scores before leaving the strip. Fencer signature on pool sheet and DE slip implies accuracy.

• Seeding for pool round is based on the Current National Youth Ranking according to age group and weapon, regardless of classification, then classification/year, then fencers with neither points nor classification. Fencers with equal classifications/ points will be randomized within each classification. Only ratings and points standings listed on the USA Fencing website at the time of the tournament will be used. Current ratings: http://www.usfencing.org/current-member-list. Current point standings: http://www.usfencing.org/current-point-standings

• Each event consists of two rounds (pools and DE (direct elimination).
Pools: One preliminary round of 5 and 6 or 6 and 7 person pools comprised of the standard 5-touch bout in 3 minutes. 100% then advance to direct elimination round.

Direct Elimination: DE tableau shall be comprised according to the results of the preliminary pool round. Fencers are seeded by their results in the pool round wherein the results of fencers in all the pools are ordered by best results to poorest results: highest ratio of victories vs. bouts fenced, touches scored vs. touches received.
Y8/Y10 DE format: 10-touch bouts (two 3-minuteperiods with a 1 minute break between). The first period ends either at the expiration of three minutes or when 5 hits are scored, whichever comes first. During the 1-minute break, ONE PERSON designated by the fencer (team-mate, coach, or parent) may be on the strip with the fencer.
Y12/Y14 DE format: 15-touch bouts (three 3-minute periods with a 1 minute break between) During the 1-minute break, ONE PERSON designated by the fencer (team-mate, coach, or parent) may be on the strip with the fencer.

• No fence-off for third place; Medals awarded to 8th place.
• Photography and filming is allowed, however NO flash photography is allowed near ongoing competitions.

Withdrawal:
• Withdrawal during pools: The pools must be fenced through the last bout. A fencer who withdraws, or who is excluded, is scratched from the pool, and his results are annulled as if he had not taken part.

• Withdrawal during DE: When for whatever reason a fencer cannot fence or cannot complete his bout, his opponent is declared winner of that bout. A fencer who withdraws does not lose his place in the overall classification of the competition.
