Youth Fencers must have a parent or guardian signature (not a coach) on the tournament entry form AND on their USFA membership form (if renewing or joining at the tournament)
All USFA rules apply. 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.
If you are having trouble finding the venue on the day of the tournament, call the Club (205)823-4448 or (205)567-5918
Y10 FENCERS: Y10 fencers must use blades that are no longer than 32.5 inches (i.e., blades that are designated a "0" or "2" under the internationally recognized lengths). Weapon length will be tested prior to competition.
All fencers must be current USFA members, and will need to show proof of membership, either by card, printed copy, or email 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.
