You must sign a Liability Waiver when you register and each fencer and guardian complete a Health Questionnaire prior to arrival details to be announced. You must abide by and comply with all safety measures required by the tournament organizer. Anyone (fencer or guardian) refusing to comply with safety protocols will be escorted from the venue. If you cannot comply do not register for this tournament. Protocols will include, but are not limited, to the following:
• Self-monitor and be symptom-free for at least 14 days prior to tournament. Stay home if you have had close sustained contact in last 14 days with anyone who was sick or known or believed to have COVID-19. Stay home if you are sick or do not feel well. • Do not register if you are coming from a State listed on the New York State quarantine list. (https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory). Tournament organizer reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone coming from one of these areas. • Wash and sanitize all your fencing equipment. Consult the manufacturer for proper cleaning instructions to avoid possible damage to equipment. • Fencers should come to the tournament already dressed in freshly washed fencing uniform. Changing in bathrooms will not be permitted, so you will need to come dressed to be able to comfortably change in other areas (socially distanced in the venue or outdoors). • Agree to temperature check on arrival. Any individual with a fever of greater than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, or any other symptoms of COVID-19, will not be admitted and will be asked to leave the venue immediately. • Everyone in the venue must wear a surgical or cloth mask covering nose and mouth, even under fencing masks, except when drinking or eating. Mask must cover nose and mouth. There is no exception to this requirement. We cannot accommodate those with conditions that would preclude wearing a mask, so anyone unable to wear a mask should stay home.
• Everyone must practice social distancing. • Guardians must remain in designated seating areas off the fencing floor. Fencers should be comfortable with basic tournament procedures (including how to hook up) and troubleshooting, as no one will be allowed on the fencing floor. Tournament staff will be on the fencing floor in case some assistance is needed. If fencers are not self-sufficient, do not register for the tournament. • Fencers must remain in designated seating areas. • All warm-up activity must be done in designated areas. • Refrain from contacting other participants and attendees (handshakes, body contact, etc.) • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow if you cough or sneeze. • Avoid touching your face, eyes or mouth with unclean hands. • Do not share equipment such as weapons, body cords, fencing masks, gloves or uniforms, with others.
Events generally start 30-45 minutes after close of registration. Registration closes 30 min before the event.
