Thank your North Carolina for supporting the growth of our Priority on Youth Series. To meet the growing need of our state, we are hosting Division 3 (Rating D & Under) events for foil, epee, and saber. Entry fees are $35 per event, and do not combine with the Priority on Youth multi-event discount. This is to support the additional cost of running a sanctioned event. Please pre-register in advance, fencers who arrive to fence, but haven't pre-registered will be able to fence at double fees.
This event is being held in conjunction with our Priority on Youth Series. By hosting these sanctioned events, we will be able to raise the competitive standard, allow athletes to earn ratings, and continue to develop more fencing referees for North Carolina.
