REGIONAL OPEN CIRCUIT (ROC)

ROC tournaments are open to all current USFA competitive members eligible to fence in Open competitions and to foreign fencers with current FIE licenses.

ROC events function as qualifiers to the National Championships Division 1A, Division 2, and Veteran Categories, and may qualify fencers to other events, depending upon classification and status. ROC Regional Points will be awarded to 40% of the competitive field. The USFA Athlete Handbook contains detailed information on qualifying pathways and should be consulted as the appropriate reference document.

ROC tournaments are open to current USFA competitive members eligible to fence in Open competitions and to foreign fencers with current FIE licenses. However, foreign fencers are not eligible to compete in USA Fencing National Championship events. In the event that a foreign fencer finishes within the qualifying group, the foreign fencer will be skipped and only the highest-finishing eligible domestic fencers will qualify.
