NJFA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which will utilize the proceeds from this event to continue its corporate focus to introducing the sport of fencing to students at all levels and ages throughout New Jersey who would not have been able to enjoy the sport and all that it provides, including increased self-esteem, confidence and pride.
NJFA has helped enrich the lives of hundreds of young children and their families. Along the way our students have experienced exceptional success both athletically and academically.

A Regional Ranking Point System (RRPS) is in place to recognize participation and accomplishment of developing athletes at the regional level. A percentage of point holders from each region will earn qualification to the Summer National Championships for Y12 and Y14. Currently, 100% of Y10 fencers on the Regional Points Standings and National Points Standings gain qualification to the Summer National Championships. There are NO National Points earned at RYC events. All athletes whose USA Fencing's membership division is in the region in which the RYC is held will earn regional points based on placement. Athletes fencing in an RYC outside their region will not earn regional points. Larger fields will award more points for placement. A percentage of athletes will earn qualification from their rankings on the RRPS. Rankings will be managed by the National Office and available for viewing on the USA Fencing Website under Rankings, Current Rankings, and then Regional. These rankings are regional only and ARE NOT RELATED IN ANY WAY TO THE NATIONAL ROLLING POINT STANDINGS. All athletes residing in the region in which the tournament is held earn regional points based on placement. Larger fields will award more points for placement. Best 3 results from RYCs within the athlete's region count toward Regional point totals on a seasonal point basis. At the end of the season, ranking winners of each age group and gender in each of the 6 Tournaments regions will be recognized by the Youth Development Committee, Tournament Committee and US Fencing. Any athlete who is age eligible may compete in an RYC. However, ONLY athletes fencing in their home region will earn Regional Ranking Points for their result.

There is NO trickle down for POINTS at the Regional level. Points earned in a Regional Youth tournament only appear in the category in which they were earned. (For example: Y12 regional points do NOT trickle down to Y10).

There IS trickle down for QUALIFICATION at the Regional level. Therefore, if a fencer qualifies in an older age group and is age eligible for a younger age group, they earn qualification in that category as well. For more information on youth qualification paths refer to the Athlete's Handbook:
