EVENT ENTRY

REGIONAL YOUTH CIRCUIT (RYC)

Y10 2007-2010
Y12 2005-2008 (or on Y10 NRPS list)
Y14 2003-2006 (or on Y12 NRPS list)

Competing in RYC provides fencers with valuable competitive experience at the local/regional level and are intended to prepare you for larger national events. RYC serve as a qualifying regional path to the Summer National Championships. Regional points will be awarded only to Region 3 residents at this RYC. Regional Ranking Point System (RRPS) rankings are managed by the National Office and available for viewing on the USA Fencing Website (http://www.usfencing.org/current-point-standings). There are NO National Points earned at RYC events. All athletes who fence at an RYC will earn regional points based on placement. Larger fields will award more points for placement. Up to 3 RYC results will count towards an athlete’s final Regional Youth Ranking. If an athlete competes in more than 3 RYCs in their home region, their best 3 results will count. At the end of the season, ranking winners of each age group and gender in each of the 6 youth regions will be recognized by the YDC and US Fencing. A percentage of regional point holders from each region will earn qualification to the Youth NAC and Summer National Championships. Foreign fencers can compete at any RYC. If they compete out of Region they will not appear on that Region’s Point List nor will points from an outside region transfer to an athletes point total in their home region.

NON-REGIONAL EVENTS
No regional points are awarded. Ratings can be awarded, however youth events do not qualify for the E1 or D1 classifications.
