A full fencing Jacket (FIE not required), a plastron, a glove, and fencing knickers. Socks must cover all the leg not covered by the knickers. Women's equipment must include breast protectors made of metal or rigid material inside the jacket. The appropriate glove, lame and mask for the weapon being fenced are required. Please wear shoes with non-marking, or white soles to all competitions. All foil fencers must have a conductive foil bib on their mask.
New Chest Guard requirements for Foil fencers will be required - The rule in m.25.4 that chest protection for foil fencers must be covered by a soft material applies to ALL chest protection, regardless of style. The soft material addresses issues of competitive balance caused by the foil requirements for tip debounce, and as such, there will be no exceptions
Masks and gloves will be inspected by the armorer. Weapons will be tested on the strip. You will not be allowed to fence with weapons that do not conform to USFA standards.
There will be one round of pools with 100% advancing to direct elimination in all individual competitions.
The direct elimination bouts will be fifteen touch bouts, with the appropriate breaks determined by which weapon is being fenced.
We will have referees for this tournament.
