Fencers who qualify for junior, if age eligible, are auto qualified for cadet events. If you registered for both junior and cadet, then qualify at the junior event, thereby also qualifying for cadet, but decide on tournament day not to fence the cadet event, you will not receive a refund for the cadet entry fee.
For complete qualifying and appeal information, please refer to the Athlete Handbook which can be downloaded from the USFA website.
Fence offs to break ties will only be done if needed. 100% promotion, however if necessary due to tournament circumstances, only 80% may be promoted. Genders will not be combined.
Ratings used will be those from the USA Fencing website as of Thursday, Dec. 14th. Any ratings earned after that or not reported to the national office will not be used. Seeding will be posted on the Friday prior to the event. Please check your seeding and email me, email@example.com, with any corrections or changes. We have a lot of events to run in one day, so it is best to have corrections made prior to Saturday, Dec. 16. Rating changes on AskFRED are not official.
