Junior, Cadet and Div2/3 combined events to qualify for 2021 Summer Nationals and Junior Olympics.
***Dates of fencing will be May 22-23***

Pre-registration is required to determine venue and number of referees required. For those who need to qualify, you must pre-register and pay on Askfred.net BY MAY 10TH! There will be no registrations taken at the door and no registrations taken after this date. We are enforcing this date to give us opportunity to obtain the correct number of referees, and determine if we will need more than one venue for our events.

We also ask that you only enter this tournament if you are serious about competing in the Summer Championships in Philadelphia, PA (over July 4th week). Please do not enter if you are already qualified through a different pathway (see the qualification paths in the Athlete Handbook on the USA Fencing website).

If you are unable to pay on Askfred, contact Brenda Waddoups at waddoups@att.net before the due date of May 10th, or mail a check to the Division Treasurer, NaRaye Williams, with the following information:
  • Fencer Name
  • Event(s) registering
  • Classification for that weapon (U if unrated)
  • Birth Year
  • Club you represent
  • USA Fencing Member Number
  • Contact information (phone, email, etc.)

Include a check for $25 registration plus $25 per event payable to NORTH TEXAS DIVISION USFA. Mail to: NaRaye Williams, 4488 Jardin Street, Irving, Texas 75038.

Fencers must be competitive members of North Texas Division, USA Fencing, US Citizens or Permanent Resident representing the US. Foreign nationals, and fencers who have represented another country in the last 3 years. are not allowed to participate as they are not allowed to fence in US National Championships.

If there are 3 or fewer registered for an event, we will not fence that event and all registered will qualify; you must pay registration and event fees. To be registered, you MUST pay for your event either on Askfred or by mailing a check to the Division Treasurer by May 10th. In some cases, we will have to fence off for third place (4 or more fencers). At least 3 qualify up to 25% rounded up.

We are still under COVID restrictions and will be required to adhere to social distancing and the wearing of COVID masks at all times inside the venue and while fencing. There are no plans by the National Office to remove the COVID mask requirement while fencing for this entire season.

If you have already qualified, please do not register for the event you are qualified. This will help us meet COVID restrictions. If you have any doubts about your qualification, check chapter 2 of the Athlete Handbook: https://www.usafencing.org/athlete-handbook. You may also contact membership at the National Office, USA Fencing. For many of you, your qualifications are already noted in your member profile on the USA Fencing website.

If you qualify for Junior, you become an automatic qualifier for Cadet. Those who qualify for Cadet by placing in the top 25% of the Junior event may be reimbursed for their Cadet entry fees and do not have to return to fence in the Cadet event. Junior events are always fenced before the equivalent Cadet event.

Age Eligibility
    Division 2/3 Birth Year 2007 or earlier
    Junior Birth Year 2001-2007
    Cadet Birth Year 2004-2007
      If a fencer is on NATIONAL POINTS for the next lower age group, they do not have to meet the birth year requirement. For Division 2/3 events, fencers who do not meet the birth year eligibility must be on Junior National Points list for that event. Askfred will not allow you to register if you do not meet the age criteria. Contact Christine Tadlock cmtadlock@prodigy.net or Brenda Waddoups waddoups@att.net for help registering.
