About the Regional Junior Cadet Circuit (RJCC)

    The Regional Junior Cadet Circuit (RJCC) is designed to promote and develop strong regional tournaments for Junior/Cadet aged fencers who seek competitive opportunities beyond the local and division levels but below the NAC Junior/Cadet levels. Please check the events calendar for more tournament dates.

    RJCC tournaments are open to current USA Fencing competitive members eligible to fence in Open competitions and to foreign fencers with current FIE licenses.

    After receiving the results, the National Office will send an online survey to all participants requesting their feedback.



How to earn Regional Points

    Please refer to Chapter 3 of the Athlete Handbook for more details on points.

    The Regional Junior/Cadet Circuit (RJCC) is designed to promote and develop strong regional tournaments for Junior and Cadet aged fencers who seek competitive opportunities beyond the local and divisional level but below the NAC Junior/Cadet levels.

    Fencers only earn points at RJCCs within their home region (your Region is assigned based on Division affiliation). Only the best 2 results count towards the point total. These points may qualify Cadet and Junior fencers to the USA Fencing Junior Olympics and July Challenge. Points earned at Regional Junior/Cadet tournaments are not considered in determination of national point standings; they are only reflected in regional point standings.

    Using the formula below, RJCC tournaments will award points to all participants:

    ((# entries - place + 1) / # entries) x 100 points

    The winner of each RJCC, regardless of size of field, will earn 100 points. The size of the participant field is based on all athletes in the event, regardless of region. Regional RJCC Points are only earned in the fencer's own region.

    RJCCs must have at least 2 competitors and cannot be fenced with mixed gender.

Seeding

    The Bout Committee must use the current rating and points information found on the USFA website for seeding purposes. Please verify that your rating and points standing are correct with the USFA, and contact the National Office to resolve any discrepancies prior to the tournament.

    Seeding will be determined USFA Letter Ranking with year classification. Athletes of the same classification/year will be seeded randomly within their criteria.

    It is the fencer's responsibility to notify the Bout Committee of any registration discrepancies before the close of check-in for the event. (I.e. wrong club, wrong rating, misspelled name, etc.) As this information comes directly from askFRED, fencers should make sure their FRED profiles are up-to-date!
