All fencers must be current USFA members, and will need to show proof of membership, either by card or by fax from the USFA. (Alternatively, a fencer may be a member in good standing of another National Federation or a current FIE license holder.) You may renew your USFA membership or join at the tournament. Forms will be available at the tournament, or can be downloaded from the USFA website at http://www.usfencing.org. If you do not have your USFA card with you when checking in, and we cannot verify membership from the USFA web site, you will be required to complete a new USFA form and pay the annual fee. The form and payment will be returned to you upon proof of USFA membership subsequent to the tournament.
Mask checks will be performed prior to competition, and there will be weight/shim tests for all weapons brought onto the fencing strip. You MUST wear a plastron, and pants/knickers that conform to USFA guidelines. No sweatpants will be permitted. Correct length of socks also required.
All USFA rules apply. At the end of each bout, fencers are required to sign pool sheets and DE slips before leaving the strip. USFA rules will be enforced throughout the competition.
This is a fantastic opportunity to sharpen your skills before Summer Nationals or to simply elevate your game! Bring your lunch or money for many nearby options. Also be sure to bring comfortable clothing and a towel. Sweat is inevitable
