All times listed are close of registration. Events with simultaneous close of registration may not necessarily be fenced at the same time.
Doors open at 9:00 AM every day for registration and equipment check.
Per USFA guidelines, age groups with fewer than 4 of each gender will be fenced mixed (boys and girls together). In larger events, boys and girls will fence separately. Separate awards for boys' and girls' placements will be given in any case.
Y10 - Fencers born in 2009-2012
Y12 - Fencers born in 2007-2010
Y14 - Fencers born in 2005-2008
We will inspect and mark all lames, masks, body cords, and gloves. Weight testing and other weapon inspection will be done at the strip. Y10 fencers must use #2 or shorter blades.
Per USA Fencing policy, all saber fencers must use 800N gloves. Foil fencers who wear a hard plastic chest protector must use the new FIE-approved padded protector. Chest protectors are still required for girls and optional for boys in all weapons.
Full regulation uniform, including fencing pants, long socks, and underarm protector, must be worn. Names on uniforms are not required. Fencers should bring a minimum of two working weapons and body cords to the strip. Rain City Fencing Center has equipment available for purchase.
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 (or sabre) masks are NOT permitted in the epee event. Two-weapon fencers will need two masks or a mask with an exchangeable bib.
All competitors must be current (2019-2020) competitive members of USA Fencing. Foreign fencers must obtain a Foreign Competitive membership from USA Fencing.
