IMPORTANT: qualification paths for 2021 Summer Nationals have changed. Please review the information at https://www.usafencing.org/news_article/show/1151513 carefully. If you have questions about qualifying paths or are unsure about whether you have already qualified through national or regional points, please contact the National Office. Veteran fencers do not need to compete in the Division event to qualify for Veteran age events in 2021.

These are the combined division qualifying events for the Division 2 and Division 3 (if eligible) national championships, to be held in Philadelphia July 3-12. Open only to eligible fencers whose USFA membership is in Philadelphia Division. If you are registered in another division, you are not eligible, even if your home address is in the division. Please check your membership card before registering.

The top 25% of competitors (rounded up, minimum of 3 qualifiers in each event) will qualify for the Division 2 and Division 3 championships in their respective weapon. After those qualifiers and fencers with a C classification are excluded, the top 25% of those (rounded up, minimum of 3 qualifiers) remaining will qualify for Division 3 only.

Regular fees: $25 registration, $25 per weapon. Regular fee deadline May 24.
Double fees: $50 registration, $50 per weapon. Double fee period May 25-May 31.
No registrations will be accepted after May 31. No walk-in registration.
Fees payable are determined by the day you pay, not the day you sign up on FRED. Only registrations paid in full are considered complete. Signing up via FRED with no payment makes you a pending registrant, and not officially registered. To pay by check or for questions about payment, contact Jeanne Gallagher, jgallagher2616@gmail.com or telephone 610-789-2616 (voice only, no text).

All fencers must present proof of current USFA and Philadelphia Division membership at check-in (membership card printed out or stored as a picture on your phone). Fencers whose date of birth is not verified (see your membership card) may bring proof of age (birth certificate, driver’s license, passport) to check-in, and that information will be forwarded to the National Office.

All fencers must have the necessary equipment in conformance with USFA rules and in good condition. Equipment will not be supplied by the host or the Division. Chest protectors used by foil fencers must be covered in soft material and must be worn below the plastron. All sabre gloves must meet the 800 NM standard.

COVID-19 NOTICE:
All USFA health and safety rules will be enforced. All persons in the venue, including fencers, coaches, referees, and tournament officials must wear a suitable mask covering their mouth and nose at all times, including while on-strip. Yelling or screaming at any time is prohibited (Group 1 penalty). Continued failure to comply with any of these requirements is a Group 3 penalty, which may result in exclusion from the competition. Fencers must sanitize reels and other equipment after use, disinfectant wipes will be provided.

Fencers, coaches, and officials should not enter the venue if they have a fever, cough, or other symptoms of respiratory infection, if they have had a positive COVID-19 test in the preceding 10 days, or if they have been in close contact with a person who was positive for COVID-19 in the preceding 10 days. A temperature check may also be conducted at the door. Fencers who are prevented from competing in the various qualifying events due to COVID-19 restrictions or will be able to petition for entry to the National Championships. Petitions are handled by the National Office, not the Division.

The number of persons in the venue will be restricted. Only fencers, referees, and tournament officials will be permitted entry. If space permits, one coach per club will be allowed in the venue. Parents and other spectators will not be allowed to in the venue.

By attending this tournament, you agree that within 14 days of the date of the event, you have not tested positive for COVID-19, been in contact with someone who has COVID-19, or traveled to a known COVID-19 hotspot. Additionally, you release and hold harmless US Fencing, USFA Philadelphia Division, Fencing Academy of Philadelphia Inc., and tournament staff from any and all liability regarding COVID-19 transmission. While state and local regulations will be followed to the letter and every other reasonable precaution will be taken, there is an inherent transmission risk associated with being in any public place.

Dressing rooms are closed. Fencers must arrive properly dressed, or in appropriate attire to permit dressing in the main fencing area. Fencers must change shoes when arriving at the venue: do not come in from outside in your fencing shoes. Rest rooms will be available, but should not be used as dressing rooms.

Please use the entrance on Rices Mill Road. Check-in and equipment check will be held in the lobby there.
