Current (2018-2019) USA Fencing competitive membership is required. Please join or renew your membership online at https://member.usafencing.org/ before the tournament. Foreign fencers need to sign up for a free Foreign Fencer membership.
Full regulation uniform, including underarm protector, fencing pants and long socks, is required. Also make sure your weapons will pass the weight test on the strip!
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 sale.
Foil fencers who wear a hard plastic chest protector must wear a new FIE-approved padded protector. Hard plastic chest protectors are still required for women and optional for men.
Epee fencers may not use foil masks, since the conductive bib can ground out the opponent's point.
Format is one round of pools, 100% promotion to direct elimination.
Age eligibility: This tournament is for fencers born in 2005 or earlier.
