FRED Announces the 2017 North Texas Division JO Qualifier
ONLY open to COMPETITIVE MEMBERS OF NORTH TEXAS DIVISION.
BRING a VALID USFA MEMBERSHIP OR PROOF OF PAID MEMBERSHIP and your parent/guardian SIGNED WAIVER or you will not fence.
Fencers who have earned national points are the only athletes who will be skipped over. Athletes who have already qualified via a regional path will not be skipped over at any division qualifier. If you have reached 110 Regional Points on the Cadet or Junior REGIONAL points list, you are qualified for that event at Junior Olympics and will not be allowed to fence in the event for this tournament.
If you are ALREADY QUALIFIED, DO NOT FENCE - if you have paid and need a refund, contact NaRaye Williams: firstname.lastname@example.org
