SCHEDULE OF EVENTS: We are finalizing the event schedule for this year, and we are happy to announce that we are making the event a 2-day competition in 2017. We have listened to your feedback, and we are making the move in an effort to try and maximize the participant experience!
COMPETITION FORMAT: Fencers will compete in pools of approximately 5-7 athletes, and then the results from the pool bouts will be used to place competitors into the direct elimination brackets. There will be 100% advancement into the direct elimination brackets. Direct elimination bouts will continue through the finals to determine overall placement.
EQUIPMENT: Masks, gloves, body/mask cords, and lames will be checked by armory. Competitors will need at least two of each of the following (with valid inspection marks) when showing up to strip: Body/Mask cords and weapons. Fencers will not need their names stenciled on their uniforms for this event.
AWARDS: The Top 3 finishers overall in each event (Men's, Women's, and Y12) will receive Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals. There will be no fence-off for 3rd place, thus there will be two bronze medals awarded. We will award medals to the Top 3 Veteran, Cadet, and Junior if participation allows. All medalists will qualify for the 2019 State Games of America in Lynchburg, VA.
