First Tournament? We will walk-you and your fencer through every step!
Basics of a Fencing Tournaments:
Check-in -> warm-up -> put on equipment -> warm-up/practice bouts
-> Pools are posted and you fence everyone in your pool in a 5-touch bout (usually 4-9 bouts; depending on number of fencers in the event)
-> when everyone in the pool has fenced each other, results are calculated and fencers continue to "direct elimination" bracket
-> fence direct elimination or "DE" bout to 10 touches (for Y10) or to 15 touches (for Y12 and older); in this round if you loose your bout the tournament is over for you but you can stay to watch
-> bouts proceed until winner is determined.
-> Medals presented to Top 8 Fencers.
(Events will be approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the number of fencers and how many bouts you win)
