SPECIAL NOTE FOR FENCERS WHO ARE ELIGIBLE FOR A HIGHER AGE GROUP EVENT BY VIRTUE OF POSITION ON THE NRPS
At this time, Askfred will not let you register and pay for an event for which you are not age eligible. If you are eligible to fence in an event by virtue of being on the NRPS in a lower age category, please contact Brenda Waddoups, firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the athlete, and the events the fencer wishes to fence, and proof of NRPS. You will be advised on how to proceed to pay for the events. Please verify your eligibility BEFORE doing this! No refunds will be given for ineligible fencers who mistakenly enter.
If you have a question about eligibility, please contact USA Fencing.
If you prefer to pay by check, you may mail a check payable to: NORTH TEXAS DIVISION USFA c/o NaRaye Williams, Treasurer
4488 Jardin Street
Irving, TX 76069
This mail in payment must be received by Mar. 28th!
Include with your payment the following information:
1. Your name as it appears on your USFA membership card
2. Your USFA membership number
3. Your club affiliation(s)
4. Your weapon rating(s) - letter and year
5. The events you are entering
6. Contact information (telephone and email address)
Check must be received by the close of regular registration.
REFUND POLICY: The NTX Division follows the refund policy of the USFA. Refund requests must be made prior to March 28th, 2023 at midnight. The registration fee is not refundable. The event fee will be refunded less FRED fees and postage. No refunds will be issued for event no-shows. Refunds will be processed within 3 weeks after the tournament. No refunds will be given for requests made after March 28th, 2023.
PETITION PROCESS: In exceptional cases, when a fencer is unable to participate in the Division Qualifier, or in Regional qualifying events, the fencer may petition the National Office. Information may be found in the Athlete Handbook online in paragraph 2.6.5.
If a fencer meets the classification requirement when his or her application is processed by the Division, and subsequently earns a higher classification, the fencer retains eligibility for that tournament.
FENCE OFF FOR THIRD: If there are more than three fencers, but fewer than 13, third place must be fenced. Where there are 13 or more fencers in the final results, third place does not have to be fenced.
We will not fence an event if 3 or fewer fencers are signed up as all three will qualify. Fencers will be listed as DNF (did not fence). Per USFA guidelines, to qualify you must still pay registration and event fees and be present at the tournament.
