Please join us for a Beginner Foil Tournament. This event is designed for fencers with around 1 year of fencing experience or less.
A current 2018-2019 membership to the US Fencing Association (non-competitive membership is fine) is also required for this event due to insurance and liability requirements.

------------------ Tournament Rules -------------------
At least a non-competitive US Fencing Association (USFA) membership is necessary to participate due to liability requirements. These events are not rated, and you cannot get a classification change from this event. A responsible adult is expected to stay as long as a child is still participating in the tournament and is encouraged to help getting the child on and off the strip if needed (we will show you if needed).
You must wear long pants and shoes with covered toes. Don't even think about fencing in shorts or flip flops. That isn't going to happen because it ain't safe.
Beginners are welcome to use club electric equipment. If we are short on electric equipment you will need to share with other fencers who also borrow electric equipment.
TOURNAMENT FORMAT FOR FOIL
This is a mixed gender, mixed age event. Depending on the size of event, we may group fencers by age or gender group. The format will be standard pools, 100% promotion to direct eliminations, and a full direct elimination round. Medals will be awarded for first - third place.
