All 11/12 Youth, E & Under, D & Under, Open and Veteran events are sanctioned by US Fencing and adhere to US Fencing Rules. The format will be one round of pools with 100-percent of fencers advancing into a single direct elimination round.
Fun Cups are unsanctioned and designed to introduce 10 & under fencers to competition. While US Fencing rules will be followed, fencers will fence two pool rounds using weighted seeding and a running 3-minute clock. While each point will be awarded, no score will be announced or recorded. Coaches are allowed to coach between each point quietly.
