Qualifying tournament for Summer Nationals in Philadelphia, PA (July 3-12, 2021) for Div 2 & Div 3 events for Iowa Division fencers.
Fencers MUST BE PREREGISTERED BY 5/22/2021 to compete - we will not accept entries at the door.
The top 3 or top 25% (whichever is greater) fencers in each event qualify for Summer Nationals in those events.
If there are fewer than 4 fencers in an event, the event will not be fenced and those athletes' names will be submitted to USA Fencing as our qualifiers (basically "auto-qualifying"). If there are 4 or more fencers preregistered by 5/22/21, we will fence the event, so if you sign up and later qualify through another path/decide not to fence/decide you don't want to go to Summer Nationals, please unregister or let us know so that everyone can plan accordingly. Due to the pandemic, we expect this will be the case with most events this year.
If you qualified for SN in 2020 (which was canceled), you do not need to sign up this year - your qualification from last year still counts. Details: https://www.usafencing.org/news_article/show/1151513#SummerNationals
Entry fee is $10.00 plus $10.00 per event (only paid if we actually fence).
(times TBA after 5/22 - we will only fence events that have more than 3 people signed up)
