Registered members of TFA's training programs pay a $20 entry fee per event.
Fencers from other clubs pay a $25 entry fee per event at registration.
Some of the items mentioned below may seem obvious, but since we are dealing with kids at a public venue, safety is utmost.
All fencers will be required to:
* wear a fencing jacket, fencing pants with long socks, plastron, mask and a glove in good condition.
* wear sweats or track pants if they don't have knickers, but NO JEANS OR SHORTS allowed.
* wear decent, well fitting NON-MARKING runners.
* wear proper-sized, tucked-in t-shirts to insure that there isn't any skin showing between jacket edges and pants.
* use well-maintained weapons in good operating condition.
All participating fencers will be required to have their CFF license (or foreign equivalent) for liability reasons.
Licenses can be purchased at: http://fencing.ca/purchase-a-cff-licence/
If kids have their own basic gear or can borrow some from their club, that's great.
We will have some basic equipment available to borrow: masks, jackets, chest protectors, plastrons and gloves.
If kids do not have their own equipment we can lend gear for their use during the day, but there is no guarantee that they won't have to share sweaty stuff between them.
Electrical gear is always an issue, so anything that can be brought from other clubs will be great.
We will have some electrical gear available to borrow: foils, head-wires, body-wires and lames.
