The Mission Regional Junior/Cadet Circuit (RJCC) is a regional qualifier for the Junior Olympic Championships and the July Challenge for Region 3 fencers. All Region 3 competitors earn regional points towards qualification to JO's 2018 and the July Challenge 2018
The Regional Junior Cadet Circuit (RJCC) is sanctioned by USA Fencing. RJCCs are a group of events throughout the country for fencers in the junior and cadet age categories in all six weapons. They provide an opportunity for young athletes to experience elite competition, earn regional RJCC points, and prepare for future national events while limiting travel time and expenses for the fencers and families. Regional RJCC Points will be awarded to all fencers in the competitive field who reside in Region 3. The Athlete’s Handbook:(http://www.usfencing.org/athletehandbook) contains detailed information on qualifying pathways for the Junior Olympics and the July Challenge and should be used as the appropriate reference document.
