Current (2021-2022) USA Fencing membership is required. A Competitive membership or the new Access level membership is sufficient. If necessary, please join or renew online at https://member.usafencing.org/ before the event, to speed up check-in.
All fencers and spectators must wear face coverings at all times, including while fencing, regardless of vaccination status. The exception is while drinking water during a DE break. Fencers are required to salute after each bout, but may tap blades in lieu of a handshake.
Full regulation uniform, including underarm protector, fencing pants and long socks, is required.
All foil fencers at all competition levels must have masks with conductive bibs. RCFC has electric foil masks, mask cords, and retrofit kits for BG "Olympic" masks available for sale. Epee fencers may not use a foil or saber mask with any conductive surface.
Foil fencers who wear a hard plastic chest protector must use an FIE-approved padded protector. We have a limited quantity of the new protectors available for sale. Chest protectors are still required for female fencers, optional for male fencers.
