AFM Youth Epee Cup for Y8/Y10/Y12/Y14 epee fencers. This is event #1 in the series of several tournaments. At the conclusion of the series at the end of the season, a trophy will be awarded for each category based on the overall performance in the series.
These events are perfect events for not-so-experienced fencers as they will run in a friendly and supportive environment.
Please note that the event start times are tentative and might be adjusted two days before the competition based on actual number of participants.
Also if there will be not enough participants in any Y10/12/14 event (less than 6) then we will combine the same age events to give more adequate competitive experience to the fencers.
Medals will be awarded to the top 4 fencers in each event - one Gold, one Silver and Two Bronze medals.
This is a first tournament in a series of 3 or 4 tournaments we plan to run during the season. Based on the overall performance of the fencers in all events, we will award a trophy to the winners in each category. The trophy will be awarded in the last tournament in the season. The points from each individual competition will be based on that competition's final placement and on number of competitors. with 1st place getting 100 points.
For example, if in the event there were 25 participants, then 1st place will get 100 points, 2nd place - 96 points, etc.
Points from all tournaments in the series will be added up to determine the winners in each age/gender category.
