FRED Announces the 2019 North Texas Division JO Qualifier
Only open to COMPETITIVE MEMBERS OF NORTH TEXAS DIVISION. Fencers must be US citizens or permanent residents to participate in any Division Qualifier for a US Championship, or in a US Championship (JOs and Summer Nationals).
BRING PROOF OF PAID COMPETITIVE MEMBERSHIP and your parent/guardian SIGNED WAIVER or you will not be allowed to fence.
If you are ALREADY QUALIFIED, DO NOT FENCE. Fencers who have earned national points are the only athletes who will be skipped over. Athletes who have already qualified via a regional path will not be skipped over at any division qualifier. If you have reached 110 Regional Points on the Cadet or Junior REGIONAL points list, you are qualified for that event at Junior Olympics and will not be allowed to fence in the event for this tournament.
