Points for ROC
- Regional points to the top 40%, rounding up.
- Up to the best 3 results in a given category will be combined to determine a fencer's Regional Rank each season.
- Athletes may earn points at ROCs in any region.
- There is NO trickle down for regional points. Points earned in a ROC tournament only appear in the category in which they were earned. (For example: Div 1A do NOT trickle down to Div 2).
- There IS trickle down for QUALIFICATION between Div 1A and Div 2/Div 3. Therefore, if a fencer qualifies in Div 1A and is age and classification eligible for Div 2 (Div 3), they earn qualification in that category as well.
- Veteran events are ROC and a qualifying PATH to Summer Nationals.
