One round of 5-touch/3 minute bout pools. 100% advance to direct elimination rounds. For Y14 and Y12, direct elimination bouts are 15 touch/9 minute bouts. For Y10, direct elimination bouts are 10-touch bouts.
National Points will be awarded to those placing in the top 40% of the competitive field regardless of where the cut occurs, with no rounding up, to a maximum of 32nd place, using the National points tables for Y10, Y12 or Y14 as appropriate.
Seeding for Youth Events shall be based on the following order:
1. Current national rolling point standings according to age group and weapon. This filters down the entire list, not just the top 32 as done in a NAC.
2. Letter ranking with year classification
3. Athletes with neither of the above are seeded on a random basis after the athletes who are seeded by the preceding factors.
All weapons will be scored electrically. Equipment (masks, lames, and body cords/head cords) will be inspected and marked.
All Y10 events must be fenced with a size 0 or 2 blade. This rule will be enforced
