Infinity Fencing Alliance Youth Cup: King of the Hill
The King of the Hill Cup is a points-driven six event series competition: the more events you attend and the better you do, the more points you score. Winner of the Cup will be based on highest number of points across all events, per age group. Top in each age group and gender earns a trophy (and bragging rights until next year:-), and the rest earn medals up to 8th place. Point standings will be announced at the 3rd Cup in March, and then the final cup in June.
