All teams may be boys, girls, or mixed, and may consist of 3 team members plus an optional alternate.
If you don't have a team to fence on, show up anyway. We'll set you up with one.
All competitors must be current 2018-2019 competitive members of USA Fencing (or equivalent). Please join USA Fencing or renew your membership online at http://member.usfencing.org/ before the tournament. Foreign fencers must register for a free Foreign Fencer membership through USA Fencing.
All fencers must have full regulation uniform, including underarm protector, fencing pants, and long socks. RCFC has these items available for purchase if necessary.
All foil fencers at all competition levels must have masks with conductive bibs. RCFC has electric foil masks, mask cords, and retrofit kits for BG "Olympic" masks available for purchase.
Epee fencers note: Because a conductive surface can cause an opponent's weapon to ground out, electric foil masks are NOT permitted in the epee event. Two-weapon fencers will need two masks or a mask with an exchangeable bib.
Foil fencers who wear a hard plastic chest protector must use the new FIE-approved padded protector. We expect to have a limited quantity of the new protectors available for sale. Chest protectors are still required for female fencers, optional for male fencers in all three weapons.
The entry fee is $60 per team. There will be medals for the top 3 teams in each event.
