ESCRIMEUR YOUTH SABRE CUP 2016-2017 POINT SYSTEM

DEFINITIONS
MaxPnts Maximum awarded points per event
EvntXRatio Event size ratio
NEntrs Number of entries per event
Pl Place accomplished

GENERAL
Escrimeur Fencers Club Point System is a modified prototype of the USFA RRPS (Regional Ranking Point System). The objective is to provide youth (Y8, Y10, Y12 and Y14) fencers with a measured competitive fencing experience in a series of USFA-sanctioned tournaments with participants from a variety of fencing clubs and of various skill levels.

Fencers will fence in Y8, Y10, Y12 and/or Y14 age groups of mixed or gender-separate event arrangements. Each participant will earn a certain number of Escrimeur Youth Cup Points at each event throughout the series.

CALCULATIONS
The maximum number of points (MxPnts) awarded per event will be based on the age group bracket and the size of event with 10 or more fencers:

Age Group MxPnts
Y8 50
Y10 50
Y12 100
Y14 200

Points are prorated for events with fewer than 10 fencers by a factor of EvntXRatio:

EvntXRatio = NEntrs / 10

Points earned at each event will be calculated as follows:

((NEntrs Pl + 1) / NEntrs) x MxPnts x EvntXRatio

Thus, 1st place earns the maximum number of Points, while all consecutive places will earn the corresponding number of Points calculated using the formula above. Results with decimal points will be rounded up.

EXAMPLES
Y10 event with 10 fencers:
1 = 50 x 10/10 = 50
2 = 45
3 = 40
...
10 = 5

Y12 event with 8 fencers:
1 = 100 x 8/10 = 80
2 = 71
3 = 60
...
8 = 11

Total number of earned Points for Escrimeur Youth Cup Series will be a sum of all Points earned in each competition, bracketed by specific age group and weapon for those fencers who competed in multiple events within a tournament.

FEES

- $35 per event if registered AND paid through AskFred.net by midnight on Sunday the week prior to the tournament;
- $45 per event if registered AND paid through AskFred.net starting Monday through midnight on Saturday the week of the tournament;
